DISM SIG Training Workshop

Over the past few weeks during holiday, some year 3 seniors have conducted training workshops as part of the DISM SIG (Special Interest Group) activities, to better prepare the junior members in the course for the upcoming competitions such as the Singapore Cyber Conquest and Hack In The Box in Malaysia.

Everyone who attended the workshop was eager to study about and practice on the various concepts and techniques taught during the sessions. Some also suggested to organize more of such fun and enriching opportunities in future.

One of the year 2 students Chua Wei Kiat mentioned after a whole day of training: "this is really a fantastic way to spend our holiday time!"
