KEMUDA Institute recently organised a three-day and two-night teambuilding activity that saw the participation of 24 students. The event, held at Borneo Tropical Resort, Miri, was aimed at increasing various interpersonal skills of the students such as problem solving, creative thinking, coaching and team spirit.
Upon arrival at Borneo Tropical Resort, the students were given a safety briefing before they went for a resort tour, hanging bridge and night walk.
On the second day, the students went on the low ropes course that tested their strength, agility, flexibility as the students learnt to overcome emotional issues such as fear of falling and losing control.
This activity was designed with a series of ropes strung between trees, 12 to 18 inches above the ground and required the students to maintain their balance while walking on the rope.
An obstacle course was their second activity where the students were challenged with physical obstacles while being timed. This involved running, climbing, jumping, crawling which aimed to test speed, endurance and teamwork.
The station ropes course made use of a variety of hardware materials to explore the fundamentals of risk management and problem solving.
“This course requires us to think critically and carefully plan our steps. I guess this is how the real world looks like,” said Nur Afiqah Nabilah.
The last activity was bamboo rafting where students were challenged with their creativity, problem solving and team spirit. Several raw bamboos and galloons were given to the students to make a raft and then paddle them in the lake.
“Other lesson that I learnt from this activity was positive thinking. When I saw some of my teammates have problems to pass the test, I did not give up. Because they all helped each other which made us able to complete the course,” said Malik Ryan.
“Thank you Kemuda for organising this activity. We enjoyed the activity, it was worth it as this taught us valuable life skills,” said Muhammad Azizul.
