Empowering Future Leaders: IBTE Students Excel in ATDC’s Outdoor Team Building and Leadership Challenges
On Friday, January 19, 2024, ATDC hosted a dynamic Team Building Games Activity for 13 students from the Institute of Brunei Technical Education (IBTE), who are part of the Rigger Course. This event marked a significant stride in ATDC’s commitment to impacting the youth of Brunei through engaging and educational experiences.
The day was packed with six meticulously designed games, each with a unique objective to foster teamwork, leadership, and problem-solving skills. The first game, ‘Double Trouble – Balloon with Double Cup,’ required students to blow up balloons and collect them in cups, emphasizing coordination and collective effort. ‘Caterpillar Balloon Rush’ followed, further enhancing the team’s synchrony and strategic planning.
A highlight was the ‘Ball Railway’ game, which involved transferring balls along a human chain. The simplicity of this game belied its profound impact on communication and collaboration skills. Then came the ‘Ball Underpass,’ which raised the stakes with a heavier ball, challenging the students’ physical coordination and collective strength.
The fifth game, ‘Hunt the Heard,’ brought an exciting twist with a blindfolded round, requiring heightened senses and trust in teammates. The day concluded with the ‘Water Balloon Trust,’ a refreshing and fun activity that left everyone soaked not just in water, but in laughter and camaraderie.
The results were remarkable. Students exhibited increased confidence, improved communication skills, and a deeper sense of trust in their peers. The games were not only fun but also served as a powerful tool for learning and personal growth.
Two participants shared their experiences. Fadhilah, one of the students, said, “It was an amazing experience! The games were not only fun but also taught us the importance of working together. I feel more connected with my classmates now.” Another participant, Haziq, added, “I never knew learning could be this engaging. ATDC has truly shown us how to combine fun with learning. The ‘Ball Underpass’ was my favourite; it really tested our strength as a team.”
These testimonials underscore the effectiveness of ATDC’s approach in providing impactful experiences. The event was a testament to ATDC’s dedication to nurturing the potential of Brunei’s youth. Through such initiatives, ATDC proves that it stands at the forefront of offering exceptional training programs, designed not just to educate but also to inspire and empower the leaders of tomorrow.
