Launch of Mentorship for Young Graduate

About 80 St. Johnian Alumni gathered at the Dining Hall on Monday, 11 June to kick off the Mentorship Program – Meet your future.

We had the honour of Rev Paul Tong and our President Dr. Vivian Wong to deliver us a speech during the ceremony.

After a delicious buffet dinner, the mentors and the mentees were divided into 7 groups by industry to share among themselves more about their career and the view on the industry.

Also as part of the program, each pair of mentor-mentee could use their hands to create a wax sculture by themselves as a very special and unique sovenior for this evening.

The mentees and the mentors are encourage to have a contact with each other once every month. And we wish the program this year with the new format and combination a great success.

Of course, this will really depends on the initiative from both sides.
