This year, Senior 2 student Lai ChianYeow from R.E.A.L Schools, Suria Campus, Cheras was selected to participate in both the Trisakti Open 2014 and Hong Kong International Judo Championship 2014. These global judo meets were held in Jakarta, Indonesia from 14 to 18 May 2014 and in Hong Kong, China from 10 to 14 July 2014 respectively.

The results or outcome of this practice are students like ChianYeow, who constantly display all-round attributes in excelling academically as well as pursuing their passion and interests.
