Media Youth Camp

A Media Youth Camp was organised at Seminari Theoloji Malaysia (STM) on 3 - 5 September 2010 for Pre-Confirmation students. About 42 Pre-Confirmation students attended this camp. The students learned about what is media, how to appreciate movie viewing, teamwork and communication. They also discovered their talent in acting and producing short movies. On the last day of this camp, the parents of the Pre-Confirmation students came to give their support and admire their children's movie-making talent.

May this Media Youth Camp enable our Pre-Confirmation students to build long-lasting relationship with their classmates and help them be more zealous in understanding and deepening their faith.
