SMOU Successfully Claims US$300,000 unpaid wages for 20 distressed seafarers
The TNTA initiative was first introduced in 2009, to give Singaporeans an alternative opportunity to pursue seafaring as a career, eventually becoming captains of ocean-going ships.
SMOU President Captain Robin Foo, together with Young SMOU Chairman Terence Tan joined officials to interact with participants of the Amazing Maritime Adventure and witness the launch of Singapore Maritime Week 2013.
SMOU members shared stronger relations over a good game of golf, congratulations to all tournament winners as well as golfers who walked away with lucky draw prizes!
SMOU members enjoyed a good time of fun doing hand wax, manicure and pedicure together with massages, coupled with lucky draw and food!
More than 40 cadets participated in the Dragon Boating learning experience jointly organised by Young SMOU and MPA on 7th November 2012. The afternoon saw three teams of dragon boats sweating it out under the sun, competing for the top spot in the exciting race.
Cadets from Tripartite Maritime Scholarship Scheme (TMSS) and students from Singapore Polytechnic thoroughly immersed themselves in the rowing, while getting to know each other and work seamlessly together towards a common goal.
The race was adjourned to the Lighthouse Bistro where everybody had a good time laughing about the happenings just before, whilst indulging themselves in a buffet spread. It was a great afternoon of adrenaline pumped excitement for all, with prizes to be won, friendships to be established and bonds to be fostered.
