It is unusual for students to get up early on a Saturday, especially since it is one of the few days that there are no lectures or the familiar rush to hand in assignments.
But, that was exactly what the Student Ambassadors did, as they gathered at Han Chiang College for their Project Bonding 1.0.
Both the seniors and juniors spent some quality hours together for the first time as everyone took part in the team building games.
The ambassadors had initially planned for some outdoor activities, however the bad weather forced the event to move indoors.
Last minute plans overnight proved to be fruitful as everyone enjoyed all the games prepared by the coordinating team.
An ice-breaking session was held before the games to help everyone get to know each other and relax, and before long, sounds of laughter could be heard all over the hall.
Some of the games helped the ambassadors discover more about their campus surroundings, as they walked around searching for the correct places for their “selfie mission.”
Ambassador Jennelyn Chan said the bonding session gave them a chance to talk to each other when searching for clues as a team.
“This project bonding was refreshing, and it was good to see another side of the seniors,” Chan said.
Lecturer advisor Cynthia Ng praised the team for putting up a successful bonding session that helped break down barriers between the juniors and seniors.
“The event was well coordinated, the backup plan worked surprisingly well and the efforts of bonding could be seen immediately,” Ng said.
When asked if he was happy with the outcome, project coordinator Bernard Loke said the event was a success because everyone had fun in spite of some glitches and the last-minute switch to Plan B due to the weather.
“I am glad to see that we were reaching out to the other students as well on campus. Big thanks to Calynn and the others for all their hard work and cooperation,” Loke said adding that more exciting sessions are lined up.
