ATTENTION: All Fac Comm Nominees (:


Hello Artemis :)

It has come to the time of the year to elect the new Artemis Faculty Committee. All C1 classes should have already confirmed the nominees who are running for CT rep. These nominees will have to go through an interview that is going to be held in the earlier half of May.

There will be some preparation work to be done prior to the interviews. All C1s running for Fac Comm will have to do the necessary preparation (for both roles) as stated below.

Each role has its own compulsory and optional tasks. For the compulsory tasks, they are the minimum requirements expected of you when you turn up at the interview. As for the optional tasks, they provide you with more avenue to justify your ability and display your skills and more fundamentally, they may be a measure of one’s desire and willingness to put in one’s best. ;)



Secretary-Treasurer:

Just come mentally prepared :)



Activities I/Cs:

A) COMPULSORY TASK:

Preamble: A faculty outing is an event whereby the faculty comes together as a whole for a night of fun and joy. It typically consists of performances by members of the faculty (occasionally including those from other faculties) as well as games that classes or representatives of the classes get to play. The purpose of such an event is to bring the faculty together to foster a stronger faculty spirit and allow friends to bond with each other through a night of good food, fun games and exciting performances, leaving behind beautiful memories.

Keeping the above in mind,
  • Do up a proposal for an upcoming faculty outing

The proposal should include the following:
  • Venue
  • Theme and event name
  • 3 games that would entertain audiences and are within the following restrictions; include a list of logistics required and manpower requirements:
    • No food allowed;
    • 12 pairs of participants (a male and female in each pair);
    • No cross dressing;
    • Maximum duration of each game: 20 minutes;
    • Game space of 7m x 5m;
    • Budget of $100 in total;
  • Event action plan
  • Budget
B) OPTIONAL TASK (CHOOSE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING):
  • Prepare an action plan for Faculty Introduction (during Orientation)
  • Propose a possible theme, storyline and atmosphere for a Dramafeste play (provide a synopsis)
  • Propose a theme for Orientation and possible publicity stunts
    • Note: The publicity stunts this year included the orientation banner, the staircase display and the vertical banners hung in the canteen

Logistics I/Cs:

A) COMPULSORY TASK:
  • Prepare a logistics list for Artemis Dramafeste and/or Faculty CIP. Include the budget for each item in the logistics list.
  • Prepare an action plan for an upcoming bridge announcement. There will be no fixed budget allocated but do take into consideration the price of logistics required. Additionally, carefully consider feasibility and plan out all mechanisms to make sure the bridge announcement proceeds smoothly. Take into account bridge announcements that you may have watched to have a better idea of what may be needed to enhance the scene. Assume Fac Comm has a maximum strength of 16 people.
    • Diagrams should be included if they help in clarifying explanations
    • The entire bridge announcement must be kept within a maximum of 1 minute
Proposed plan for bridge announcement:

For the entire bridge announcement, the sound effects and music will be played through the AV system. The bridge announcement is set at a ball, where there are 3 pairs of dancers dancing on the bridge. As the ball proceeds, the pompous organiser is carried out by her two subordinates who put her down and serve by her side. She promises the people at the ball that she will bring joy and fun to them. At this moment, another subordinate of her rushes in to tell her of what is happening beyond this ivory tower of hers. Displeased that the subordinate killed her mood, she orders for the subordinate to be executed. The killing takes place and at the moment of execution, Mr Mime appears to interrupt the ball. He causes a mess at the scene, causing the chandelier to drop and the release of the balloons that were used to decorate the ballroom. Mr Mime then announces his invitation for all to attend this exclusive ball which the pompous organiser had selfishly organised for her closest of friends. As Mr Mime releases the details of the event, the banner is unveiled.

Sports I/Cs:

A) COMPULSORY TASK:
  • Propose a new cheer that is to be used for Orientation
  • Strategize and form teams for both boys and girls for Combined Sports Meet (for all events stated below)

    • 12 x 200m relay
    • 8 x 50m relay
    • 4 x 50m swimming relay

Dance I/Cs:

A) COMPULSORY TASK:
  • Choreograph a dance of about 30 seconds (Fac Dance standard)
  • Propose a soundtrack list for POP 2015
  • Choose a theme for a Faculty Outing and propose an idea for Fac Comm performance. (be as creative and realistic as possible!)
B) OPTIONAL TASK:
  • Mix a Fac Dance soundtrack of not more than 2.30 minutes

Pub I/Cs:

 A) COMPULSORY TASK:
  • Redesign the wolf mascot
  • Fac Comm Shirt Design/Fac CIP Shirt Design (New mascot must be incorporated)
B) OPTIONAL TASK:
  • A short video clip (within three minutes) publicizing the Faculty Outing
  • Create a new Faculty Blog/Website
  • Design a new cover page for the Artemis newsletter
  • A banner design for a faculty breakfast known as "munch" / orientation banner known as "brave new world" and one other publicity material for the same event (poster/ticket)
C) PORTFOLIO:
  • Past physical and/or digital artwork and designs
  • Videography and/or photography portfolio
  • Past website designs and coding

Even though some tasks for the respective Fac Comm roles are optional, it will be best for you and definitely put you in an advantage if you do them as well J
In addition, all information about Fac Comm interviews will be posted on this blog so do constantly check the faculty blog for updates!
Please feel free to ask your senior CT rep if you have any questions!


WITH LOVE,

Attention to all potential future Fac Comm members

Hello one and all!

For those of you who are intending to run for a role in the faculty committee, you are required to obtain the sign-up form from your senior CT reps on Monday morning (28/4) and submit it to any senior Fac Comm member by 6pm on the same day.

For those who are interested in joining the Fac Comm and running for the role of Dance I/C or Publicity I/C but not as a CT rep (yes you can!), you are also required to go through the same process as mentioned above (:


In about 2 weeks time, there will be a round of panel interviews and more information will be released via this platform! (:


With love,

5 reasons why you should NOT join Artemis Faculty Committee 14/15

Hey C1 Artemisians!

Orientation high fades away. Impending lecture tests come pressing down hard on you. Desperately trying to find something meaningful to do in your otherwise unfulfilled JC life. Need I say more?

“Haiz, yet another rhetoric-filled publicity” you must be thinking. Well, you are pretty darn wrong. In fact, we are here to persuade you NOT to see Artemis Faculty Committee 14/15 as the answer to all your troubles. Why should we? We are so out of love with Fac Comm that here we are, telling you 5 reasons why you should NOT join Artemis Faculty Committee 14/15.

1)      Fac Comm is just too awesome for you


That’s right. All that enthusiasm and passion you saw from us during Orientation, POP and Dramafeste – how can you possibly take it? For all you might know, you could be transformed into a crazed fanatic bursting with Artemis pride. Oh dear, that would be too much for you to handle wouldn’t it?

2)      Planning large-scale Faculty events is just totally uncool and boring


Because standing proud and tall in front of the entire Artemis Faculty during POP is oh-so-uncool. Leading your faculty to glory and carving your own legacy is just too good to be true.   


That overwhelming feeling of accomplishment at the completion of an event enjoyed by over 600 fellow Artemisians just completely bores you.


Knowing your event-planning efforts go towards a cause much larger than yourself just doesn’t bother you.

3)      Being part of a tightly-knit 16-man strong committee is just too passé


Because going through thick and thin with 15 other like-minded individuals, forging bonds that can last a lifetime just isn’t your thing. Yup, all that fun and laughter you could potentially enjoy with your new Fac Comm mates doesn’t appeal to you.

4)      You have multiple lifetimes to experience it again

You just don't subscribe to YOLO (You Only Live Once). The idea that you can never find such a unique experience anywhere else, and perhaps ever again, well, doesn’t bother you because you can get a go at it in another lifetime anyway.

5)      Because you lack the faith to try

Because you never dared to find out how far you can go if you only tried.
Because you told yourself JC life will be better but it never is.
Because opportunities just slip pass you and you are going to miss this one too.  

If somehow you still possess the will to apply for Artemis Faculty Committee 14/15, feel free to approach any senior FC members to dissuade you.

Still not moved? Fine. Just remember, if you are aiming to run for CT Rep, you must at least have tried the position of Interim CT Rep once. 

With love,

Artemis Fac Comm 13/14

Xtreme Makeover 2014: Made A Success


Hey Artemis!

It has been a week since Fac CIP. Hope you guys had a great time there!

We want to thank you for spending your time painting and cleaning the residents’ houses, as well as interacting with them! (:

Many of you sacrificed your weekend beauty sleep to join us early in the morning. Even though the wet weather on Day 1 did us no favour, our high spirits were not dampened. Together, we braved the rain to get to each unit in time, especially for those classes taking Blocks 118, 121 and 123. All of us are deeply touched by that. :’)

Overall, we managed to help out all the units that we planned at the beginning. The residents were really satisfied and thankful for the services that you all have provided. All these would not be possible without the effort of every single one of you. We hope that this has been an enriching experience.

The staffs of the Senior Activity Centre, as well as the residents they represent, have expressed their heartfelt gratitude for the services we rendered.

ONCE AGAIN, THANK YOU FOR MAKING ARTEMIS EXTREME MAKEOVER 2014 A SUCCESS ^^

With love,
Artemis Faculty Committee 13/14
