Bored? Try these social activities!

By Julian Abraham Chua, Diploma in Business Management Graduate
Getting bored of doing the same activities over and over again? Get creative and try out a new one! A change in activity can be both beneficial and fun, especially when it is something you have never experienced. For many, when the term and semester breaks arrive, there is usually some free time.  Instead of lazing around or engaging in Facebook stalking and LAN games, get off your butt and plan something new and constructive with your friends! Here are some suggestions on fun activities to try out:

Not everyone likes to set out on a road less traveled but an adventure would never be one without obstacles. My overseas attachment to Wunderman global network with Fortelligent, a business intelligence company, started out like this since the day I arrived in Boston, Massachusetts on the 12th of October 2011.

Meet the winners of NYP Jam! 2012

As the winners of NYP Jam! sat in the 987FM studios, a surreal feeling began to settle in. Less than a week after winning their respective categories,  NYP champions Jereld Ang and Brendon Chua from The Fa├žade and secondary school champion Tan Hui Min were about to be interviewed by Mediacorp Personality, Divian Nair.  They also had the opportunity to share their talents with 987FM’s listeners.

Meet the students behind NYP Open House 2012

(From left to right: Aaron, Winsome and Richmond)

You can’t see an experience. That’s why at NYP Open House, we’ve got plenty of our students on hand to share their experiences with you.  These students will be on hand during the next three days of Open House (5-7 January) to make our visitors feel right at home and show them what the NYP Experience is about.

One of the toughest things about going to a new school is trying to make new friends. But if student volunteers, Richmond, Aaron and Winsome are anything to go by, NYP freshmen will have an easy time making friends.

NYP-in Action: Caring for Senior Citizens

By Cheang Hoi Yee, First Year, Diploma in Digital & Precision Engineering
As the saying goes, the older the fiddler, the sweeter the tune. On 19 November 2011, SEG Care and I Share Club put together “NYP in Action for the Community” - an annual community service project and party for senior citizens - together with Lions Befrienders. This event allows students contribute to the community, bring happiness to our senior citizens in Singapore, and show appreciation for their contributions. Around 200 senior citizens from Senior Activity Centres (SAC) such as AMK and Bendemeer SACs, and Lions Mei Ling Street Neighbourhood Link gathered at the South Canteen on that special day.
