Politeknik Brunei (PB) students performed a Korean folk dance to mark the golden jubilee celebration of the establishment of the Youth Centre at the centre’s multi-purpose hall last night.

Permanent Secretary (Administration, Finance and Estate) at the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports Pengiran Mohd Amirrizal bin Pengiran Haji Mahmud was the guest of honour.

The choreographed performance highlighted Korea’s vibrant traditional legacy, consisting of music, dance and costumes.

The student-led event was organised by PB’s Student Council, Korean Culture Club and the Dance and Music Club. The event focussed on developing knowledge and understanding among students of Korean culture which offered a combination of tradition and modernity appreciated in many parts of the world.

The performers are currently undertaking programmes in the School of Business, School of Information and Communication Technology, School of Science and Engineering and School of Health Sciences.

The Youth Centre has breathed a new life into its youth-related services and activities since its revamp in 2012.

It has attracted organisers from several associations to host youth programmes, entrepreneurial and entertainment events to develop talents of youth.
