Since Summer Camp is a separate event from the other courses at API, some teachers might consider us guests rather than students. This might make them more reluctant to discipline our students even when the students may upset the teachers.
As Summer Camp participants, we should not demand special treatment but rather show the teachers our respect by learning the proper way of approaching our teachers according to the customs in Malaysia. As guests, it is actually we who need to adapt to our hosts customs rather than the opposite even though we will probably end up meeting somewhere in the middle.
The intention of Summer Camp is first and foremost to study. Therefore, to make sure that our students will get the best study environment as possible, there are some rules that the students must adhere to. Any breach of the rules and regulations might become a distraction for the other students. Should a student decide not to respect the rules once in Malaysia, he or she might ultimately be sent back home early at his or her own expense. For more details, see the “Disciplinary action” section.
