Twenty (20) secondary students from Seri Mulia Sarjana School actively participated in
the 18th International School Brunei Borneo Global Issues Conference (ISB BGIC) held
on 24th- 27th June 2022 at the International Convention Centre (ICC) Kementerian Hal
Ehwal Luar Negeri, Stadium Rd, Bandar Seri Begawan and was graced by Her Royal
Highness Paduka Seri Pengiran Anak Isteri Pengiran Anak Sarah binti Pengiran Salleh
Ab Rahaman, D.K. This year’s BGIC focused on the 3rd Sustainable Development Goal
(SDG3) – Good Health and Well-Being aimed at raising awareness of serious world
issues, developing public speaking skills, and growing responsible global citizens. This is
a Model United Nations (MUN) simulation that focuses on the UN’s Sustainable
Development Goals (SDGs) – a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet
and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

By taking part in this conference, the students are showing future employers and
universities that they have an understanding of global concerns and current affairs as well as debating and presentation skills in a formal environment. These are indeed highly
admirable skills. Moreover, the theme for this year’s BGIC was ‘CLIMATE ACTION’ which
focused on four different aspects such as Environmental, Political, Human Rights, and
Economic-Social. Our very own Chia Xuan Lei of Year 11C from Environment Forum 2
won ‘The Best Delegate’ award while Joshua Estrella Gatapia from Political Group 2
received the ‘Best Resolution’ recognition. Both of them received certificates of
achievement. It was indeed a noteworthy event for our students as supervised by Teacher
Hjh Nurul Hafiizah binti Hj Abdul Aziz and Teacher Siti Adawiyah Sugara Binti Asrul.
