We are pleased to announce the establishment of our SOI Alumni Committee for 2021 to 2023!

Our first alumni committee is chaired by Kenny Ong (Diploma in Information Technology, class of 2007) and representatives from each diploma and the SOI Club.

The committee had its first meeting on 8 December and will be organising and leading some student and alumni engagement activities that aim to support your studies or career advancement opportunities.

Do keep a lookout as the committee will be leading some activities in the upcoming Virtual Career and Opportunity Fair in early 2021.

What our alumni say about :

“RP allowed me to discover and transform myself from being complacent and quiet to being more confident and unafraid to make mistakes. RP also provided me with ample opportunities to achieve further. Looking at the things that I’ve accomplished in RP, I’ve learnt that even though there may be obstacles, I will face these obstacles with the right mind-set.”
