77 Bhujoharry College Students complete YUVA’s Moral & Civic Education programme

YUVA Academy expands its wings. On Thursday, 26 September 2019, YUVA completed another round of its Moral and Civic Education (MCE) Programme. Through the training, the young students were able to engage in stimulating conversations about philosophical, creative, analytical and critical thinking.

In the first session, the Grade 10 and 12 students of the Bhujoharry College La Tour Koenig took their seats in the classroom, both full of expectation yet somewhat reserved.

The YUVA Academy has successfully launched its Moral and Civic Education programme at the Jean Marie Frank Richard State Secondary School, La Tour Koenig on Tuesday, 13 August 2019. During this first session, Mr Kris Padayachy, the trainer, and the YUVA team welcomed 38 determined and dynamic students.
