At the roadshow, the students also had the opportunity to watch video clips on ASEAN followed with a quiz on ASEAN to test students' knowledge on ASEAN.
Such a roadshow, among others, is aimed at disseminating as well as making extensive exposure of ASEAN-based information on secondary school students in the country, as they are youths who will inherit the continuity of the nation, thereby play a key role in catalyzing this country's direction.
It is also hope to raise awareness and knowledge of school students on ASEAN, in addition to identifying the extent to which students are aware of ASEAN and the role of the organisation in developing member states.
With the briefing, it is also possible to instill awareness and a sense of belonging among school students, as an ASEAN community, in line with the ASEAN Moto: One Vision, One Identity, One Community.
The programme is one of the Department of Information's ongoing efforts in injecting the spirit of patriotism and the unity of ASEAN-ness among the students to equally reflect the function of ASEAN as well as to strengthen the relationship between the Department of Information and the community, especially the students in this country.
