On 9th to 10th February, International Relations Students’ Society (IRiSS) had organized an annual event called Kursus Pengurusan Organisasi. This event was held at Kem Pengakap Muhammad Ismail, Telaga Batin, Kuala Nerus, Terengganu.

Plus, this event involved all the International Relations(IR) students from the Faculty of Law and International Relations including 1st year, 2nd year and 3rd year of IR students. This program was held to expose the IR students on how to draft a proposal before organizing a program or event.

In the evening of the first day, we did a volunteerism activity, where we collected the garbage around Teluk Ketapang beach. At night, the event was continued with a talk given by Puan Wan Muzawati Wan Musa from HEPA. Puan Wan Muzawati’s talk was about on how to do a proposal and activity’s report. After the talk ended, we held a movie night and the Darkest Hour film was played. On the second day, the event continued with aerobics and teambuilding games. The event ended with the closing ceremony by Puan Wan Muzawati. After that, all participants went back to UniSZA.

The teambuilding games had created a bond between seniors and juniors of IR students. The IRiSS committees hope that the bond created will continuously last even after we finish our study.
