Media Event: 50 Students From 13 Schools Appointed Singapore Convention Youth Ambassadors

Some 50 students from 13 schools will be appointed Singapore Convention Youth Ambassadors to high-level international delegations visiting Singapore in August to witness the signing of the Singapore Convention on Mediation.

This was announced on 18 June by the Ministry of Law (MinLaw) at the launch of the Singapore Convention Youth Involvement Programme at Maxwell Chambers.

Under this programme, the 17 to 18-year-old students will host guided tours around key places of interest. On 8th August, the students will lead foreign delegates on tours of Maxwell Chambers and its expansion, Maxwell Chambers Suites, which will hold its Grand Opening on the same day.

The students are from various Junior Colleges in Singapore and schools offering the 6-year Integrated Programme, e.g. NUS High School.

The seven agencies that will come together to conduct the training programme are MinLaw, the Singapore Bicentennial Office (SBO), Maxwell Chambers, the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), the National Heritage Board (NHB), the National Parks Board (NParks) and Gardens by the Bay.

Deputy Secretary of MinLaw, Mr Han Kok Juan, led the first portion of the training programme. He elaborated on Singapore’s approach to Rule of Law and led the students on a tour of both Maxwell Chambers and Maxwell Chambers Suites.

The students were given a first look at the rooms and locations around the complex. These will be the same spots that the students will show to the foreign delegates visiting Maxwell Chambers on 8th August.
