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) 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, come up with a proposal for a faculty outing according to one of the following themes:
  • Year 3000
  • Blue
  • 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;
      • 1 pair of participants from each Artemis Class;
      •  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, story line 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 at the inner plaza


Logistics I/Cs:

TASKS: 
A) COMPULSORY TASK

Craft a sponsorship email for an upcoming Faculty Outing with an estimated attendance of 400. Using the theme “Serendipity” (which means a fortunate happenstance), sell your FO to your sponsor. At the same time prepare a logistics list for pre-event, the event itself, and post-event, including publicity items (e.g. banner) and clean-up.
          
B) OPTIONAL TASK (do any ONE out of the two)

1. 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.

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 organizer 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 organizer had selfishly organised for her closest of friends. As Mr Mime releases the details of the event, the banner is unveiled.

2.  Your Faculty Outing has run into some problems. Details are as follows:

  • Your performers need their amp to rehearse, but it is with your working partner who is stuck in traffic, and they refuse to do otherwise as they see no viable compromise.
  • The banner is not staying straight as it is too heavy and is sagging in the center. The surrounding supports you can use are 2 pillars that aren’t as wide as your banner, and a curtain rod that has several plastic hooks that individually cannot hold up your banner.
  • Your laptop earphone port refused to work during the test run as it recently ran into some problems. Your Performance Sub-Committee is pressuring you to resolve the issue so as to ensure that there is house music and performance music.
Assuming you have the following materials: Duct tape/Fabric Tape, Twine, a ladder and your mobile phones, as well as a manpower of 10, describe how you would 1. prioritise the problems and 2. how you would resolve the issues.


Sports I/Cs:


A) COMPULSORY TASK:

  • Propose a new cheer that is to be used for Orientation
  • Based on this year's War Games rules and regulations, come up with a strategy for Artemis to win the War Games
    • 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
    B) OPTIONAL TASK (choose any)
    • 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
    •  Strategize and form teams for Festival of Sports for the following games:
      • 5v5 Street-Soccer (Girls team) *maximum of 2 school team players*
      • 6v6 Floorball (Boys team and Girls team) *maximum of 2 school team players*
      • 7v7 Tchoukball (Boys team and Girls team) *maximum of 2 school team players*
      • Team of 6 Badminton players (2 doubles & 2 singles, boys and girls team) *maximum of 2 school team players*



    Dance I/Cs:

    A) COMPULSORY TASK

    • Choreograph a dance of about 30 seconds (fac dance standard)
    • Propose a soundtrack list for POP 2017 and mix a Fac Dance soundtrack of not more than 2 minutes 30 seconds. Bring the soundtrack on your phone/thumbdrive
    • Propose an idea for Fac Comm performance for Faculty Outing. You can come up with your own theme for the Faculty Outing! (be as creative as possible)

      Nosta19ic Fashion!

      Hi Artemis!!

      The Artemis Faculty Outing 1 2016, NOSTA19IA, is just three days away! Thinking about what to wear to FO? Don't worry, Artemis FacComm is here to help! As the theme has to do with our childhood of the late 90s and early 2000s, the general dress code is to dress up like the cartoon or game characters of the 2000s! Here are some wardrobe choices you can consider while coming to FO :>

      Level 1 - Bright Colours

      Just like the striking colours of many cartoon characters of our childhood, dress up with all the colours of the rainbow! 



      Level 2 - Accessorise!

      Apart from colourful clothing, there are a wide range of accessories available to make you look like your favourite cartoon character! Don't be afraid to be creative :D

      Image result for pikachu ears

      Level 3 - Onesies!!!

      Don't dress up like a character. Be the character. For the brave-hearted - try this at your own discretion :) 




      If none of the options appeal to you, the dress code is smart casual!

      Style up and turn up! See you at NOSTA19IA!

      With Love,

      Artemis FacComm 15/16
