CAPT in Mind

Hey CAPTains!

“Everyday objects surround us, the unconditional keepers of confessions and secrets. They are with us in those private moments when we think we are alone, as we check ourselves in the mirror, scratch an itch or allow ourselves a sigh or a sob. What if those inanimate witnesses to silent thought and hidden emotion had stories to tell?” (Krishna Udayasankar)

Introducing CAPT in Mind, a shared photo journal that aims to showcase glimpses into the lives of CAPTains through the stories that only our belongings can tell. Take a photograph of an object that is meaningful to you and tell us why in a journal entry. Perhaps it represents a significant moment, got you through a challenging time, or brings about a sense of happiness or nostalgia. Describe it, write a reflection or poem about it — express yourself! All CAPTains can sign up to be a part of this shared anonymous photo journal.

All entries will be compiled and put up on Level 1. Be assured that the entries are displayed anonymously, unless you choose to write your name in your journal entry! If you have any questions, feel free to dm us at @capt.support on Instagram!

Do sign up via this link to contribute to CAPT in Mind! tinyurl.com/captinmind
Signups will close on 22 Feb, Friday 2359.

With Love,
CAPT Support

Our CAPT Conversations

Hello, CAPTains! ❤

CAPT Support is having our first initiative of the semester on Mental Health! We will be revisiting some of the themes covered in Sem 1 to bring across a more coherent message about the relevance of mental health in our everyday lives, and the difference between mental health and mental illness. 

Look out for our posters in the common areas and send any questions that you may have about the topic to www.sli.do/#F085. All questions are welcome and we will address them in the first Our CAPT Conversations session on 11 Feb, 7.30pm to 9pm, at B1, beside the cafe.

Look out also for our subsequent activities that aim to help CAPTains to be more aware of their own mental health and that of others, and learn how they can better support themselves and the people around them.

Thank you and we hope to see you there!! 

With Love, 
CAPT Support ❤

CAPTSLAM 4.0 Mentor Recruitment

Hi everyone!! It’s CAPTSLAM again!!!!!

CAPTSLAM 4.0 is a mentoring project in Semester 2 with Queensway Secondary School. It is a meaningful opportunity to push yourself beyond your comfort zone and do something good for a community you might not always engage with: youth who might require guidance and support from an older sibling figure.

There will be a total of 7 sessions on Saturday mornings and a trip to Cambodia in early June. Along with a buddy mentor, you will have 3-4 mentees under you whom you will interact with and grow together. As mentors, you will also have the opportunity to think deeper and more meaningfully about the impact of mentoring and the role you play in the mentees’ lives.

Sign up at https://tinyurl.com/captslam4 by Friday, 15 Feb, 2359H.
If you have any queries, feel free to contact Colin or Min Xin (see newsletter for contact)!! We are rly very friendly 🙂
