Students urged to join contest to raise awareness on emergency numbers

|     Daniel Lim     |

STUDENTS from schools across the country are invited to take part in a bilingual poster designing competition for Brunei’s four emergency hotlines.

The participants are required to incorporate the hotline numbers – comprising 991 for Ambulance, 993 for Police, 995 for Fire and Rescue, and 998 for Search and Rescue – into their poster designs which can be done either digitally or on an A4 paper, in English and Bahasa Melayu.

The competition is organised by digital education specialist teachers at Panaga School, Damian Brady and Neil Lynch, together with the support and funding from Brunei Shell Petroleum Company Sdn Bhd (BSP).

The winner will be awarded the opportunity of designing a bilingual magnet that will be mass-produced for distribution among schools, government departments and businesses.

In a press statement, both Damian Brady and Neil Lynch explained that the competition represents an appropriate occasion for schoolchildren, parents and teachers to learn all four emergency numbers.

Participants can send multiple design entries for the competition, which ends on April 12.
