Meet the new leaders of the pack!

Hey Artemis!

Time really flies, and it is already time for us to step down and hand over the pack to the next pair of leaders.

You have listened to them, questioned them and finally voted for them in the belief that they will bring Artemis even further during their term.

Your votes have spoken, and the two new leaders of the pack are...

Jaye Chan from 15S7F
Chanel Lee from 15S6F

It has been such a privilege serving you as your Faculty Heads of 2014/2015, and we hope that we (along with our Faculty Committee) have brought you as much joy as you have brought to us. We hope that you will give nothing but your fullest support to Jaye and Chanel in their term ahead! :) They will be selecting the new Faculty Committee from next week onward, so do keep a lookout for that!
With love,
Alpha and Beta wolf
P.S. Our Faculty Outing bridge announcement will be coming really soon, so pay extra attention during morning assembly these few days ;)

There will be some preparation work to be done prior to the interviews. All C1s attending the interview must complete the necessary tasks (for both roles) before coming for the interview.

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. ;)

(Please note that there has been a change in the compulsory task for Pub I/Cs)




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, come up with a proposal for a faculty outing according to one of the following themes:
  • Year 3000
  • 7 sins
  • Year 1948

The proposal should include the following:
  • Venue
  • 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 mins;
      •  Game space of 7x5m;
      •  Budget of $100 in total.
  • Event action plan
  • Publicity plans (banner, bridge announcement, etc.)
  • Fac Comm work allocation

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 (give a synopsis)
  • Propose a theme for Orientation and possibly 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:

TASKS: 
A) COMPULSORY TASK

Prepare a logistics list for Orientation and POP. Include the budget for each item in the logistics list.
          
B) CHOOSE 2 OR 3

2. 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.
     a.     Proposed plan for bridge announcement:
     b.     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.

3.  Your Faculty Outing 2 event ICs wants a clock for their bridge announcement. The clock needs to be visible from the inner plaza (ie higher than the bridge railings), transported from the on side of the bridge to the middle and finally to the other side. It is 1.5m in diameter and the minute and hour hands need to be able to spin. Design a logistic list for the clock, with quantity and cost of materials needed, as well as the steps involved in building the clock. Feel free to include illustrations if they help to clarify matters. There is no fixed budget, but do try to keep costs low, while taking into account the feasibility of the mechanisms and safety issues (if any). At the same time, the bridge announcement contains a scene where Mr Mime is to be carried to the centre of the bridge on a throne. Describe how you would build this prop, and detail how you would ensure that safety is not compromised.

Sports I/Cs:


A) COMPULSORY TASK:
  • Propose a new cheer that is to be used for Orientation
  • Strategize and form teams for both C1 boys and C1 girls for Combined Sports Meet (for all events stated below)
    • 12 x 200m relay
    •  8 x 50m relay
    •  4 x 50m swimming relay

    • 5v5 Street-Soccer (Girls team) *maximum of 2 school team players*

    • 7v7 Tchoukball (Boys team and Girls team) *maximum of 2 school team players*
    • 7v7 Handball (Boys team and Girls team)
  • Plan an inter-class sports competition for the faculty in the form of a proposal. The proposal should include:
    • The sport(s) chosen and the rationale behind it
    • The rules of the sports
    • The match fixtures
    • Any other additional information

Note: Combined Sports Meet and Festival of Sports are inter-faculty events! By forming team, we expect all of you to find people to participate in the stated events/games.

  • Propose a soundtrack list for POP 2016 and mix a Fac Dance soundtrack of not more than 2 minutes 30 seconds

  • New faculty shirt design
