SINGAPORE: 1,000 students from the Institute of Education (ITE) will be volunteering at the 2015 SEA Games to be staged in Singapore.
This is part of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the institution and the Singapore Sports Council.
The exact areas the students will be helping in are being worked out, but these could include media and show events.
The collaboration also forms part of the Games organisers’ journey to co-create the event and to share the sense of ownership and pride in being hosts of the Games.
Lim Teck Yin, CEO of Singapore Sports Council, said: "I think we are always ready to work with other partners as well. ITE as a first strategic partner is a very significant move for us and I think the relationship should extend beyond the SEA Games. It is really related to everything that we wanted to do under Vision 2030." - CNA/gn
