SCHOOL OF LIFE
PETRONAS School of Life is a community project by PETRONAS Carigali Brunei Ltd (PCBL) in collaboration with Curious Mind to educate Youth on the essential life skills beyond the classroom.
The program is designed to achieve 3 specific goals:
1. To Prepare Youth for Future Employability,
2. To Equip for an Unpredictable Future,
3. To Inspire for Success that Matters in life.
Every Friday from June to October 2021, we will be conducting a workshop teaching different Soft Skills to our youth. Our course features 5 main topics over the 5 months period at PCBL:
The Workshops also features a 45-minutes interview with a distinguished guest at each session of our workshop.
"The topics are important especially for the young generations nowadays, because it is so relatable."

"The snakes and ladders analogy puts life into perspective (a genius one too!). This example helps me to identify my ‘snakes and ladders’ in life. I agree that some people are born privileged to have certain ladders lined up for them, thus ranking them higher ups. But as we know in life, they’re even bound to stumble upon their snakes along the way as well. Each of us may have different ‘snakes’, but in the end its how our attitude would help us, either to bounce back or just dwell deeper and further in the situation."
Dk Nurun Najeebah Tashim
"I really enjoyed the part where we were split into different groups and were able to discuss about being "in their situation" (of different adversity scenarios). It really helped me think in a different way.
Ever since I joined the workshop, the way think has changed 180°. My point of view and the way I approach others have also improved."
Nurafiqah @ Syasya binti Abdullah Asmalina

Managing Adversity session helped me to prepare myself better for any adversity that I may encounter in the future. In the past, I didn't know how to manage and overcome adversity because we didn't learn about it at school.
I wasn't aware and didn't have any knowledge about emotional intelligence before. The session helped to educate and give me some valuable insights about this topic. It helps me to to rethink about my decisions and, see life in different angles and perspectives, not from one point.
Siti Nur Rakhna binti Muhammad Hideny
My “aha” moment:
Learning from the workshop that there’s a fine line between perseverance and stupidity. The drive to keep going and striving may not be the answer for all. It is important to reevaluate the situation and know when to quit.
"Young People can learn so much more about life here from the workshop!"
