Looking Back

Looking Back: ING 2018

Two weeks ago, CAPT kicked off recess week with the highly anticipated Inter Neighbourhood Games. Every houses sent their best players forward, all in the hope of clinching the champion title. Even though not everyone walked away a champion, many left with a greater sense of belonging to CAPT. Ong Qian Ying, the Captain of Garuda’s Captain’s Ball team shares her thoughts on the games.

“As someone who hasn’t had much exposure to sports, being part of ING was a really good experience for me as it gave me a comfortable platform to try out a variety of sports. Despite having limited experience in basketball or netball, I was chosen as the Captain for Garuda’s Captain’s Ball team. Initially, I was hesitant to pick up the role as I was afraid that I wouldn’t live up to the position but everything went smoothly and the whole experience turned out a lot better than expected. My teammates were very supportive and the seniors really helped me along the way, for example when it came to organising trainings for the team. Additionally, being a captain had cultivated my leadership skills and allow me to grow as an individual. Even though we may not have placed first, I am really proud of my team and will always treasure the bond that we had forged. I joined to play the sport, ended this journey truly humbled by the whole experience.

 

Other than Captain’s Ball, I also played for Garuda’s Soccer, Volleyball and Dodgeball team. And while it was tiring, I thoroughly enjoyed myself and the whole experience definitely made me even more interested in the respective sports. I really appreciated having the seniors be so patient with us freshies, especially since many of us were quite new to these sports, and guiding us through it all – they are one of the reasons why I had enjoyed myself so much. Looking forward, ING has definitely made me really excited for the upcoming ICG.

Overall, despite it being a competition, ING was never competitive. Such an event really showcases the sports culture and its inclusivity in CAPT and that reaffirmed my decision to join the Sports Committee.”

Qian Ying’s reflection really brought out the true meaning behind ING: an event which allowed CAPTains across various houses to bond through their common passion for sports.

Looking Back: CAPTISS 2018

On 22nd September, over 400 students attended CAPT’s biannual Student Symposium, also known as CAPTISS. This year, the theme was Sharing Spaces: Diverse Approaches and Communities, and it saw 60 presenters from diverse backgrounds coming together to discuss important issues at hand. We spoke to Jordan Tang, the PD of CAPTISS, to reflect on his experience helming this event:

“CAPTISS 2018 was a space for people to learn from each other’s ideas, practices and experiences. On 22 September, we welcomed over 400 attendees throughout the day with over 60 presenters at our 9 panels and poster sessions. Everyone came together with a single purpose: to learn. And it was truly a learning journey, even for us in the CAPTISS 2018 Organising Committee. Throughout this journey, I saw various members having their own stories of growth. An Academics Subcommittee member overcoming her hesitations and becoming an eloquent moderator for her panel. A director who learnt design skills and website-making skills from scratch. A team that innovated and persevered to create a beautiful art gallery.And there are even more stories to tell that I cannot capture here. I ask that you speak to those who were part of the process. Hear their stories of growth so that the learning does not stop here. Learn about how the Hospitality team created the perfect atmosphere for building connections between all attendees through their networking session and Finale Night; how the Logistics team implemented a QR code registration system that was the first of its kind in CAPT; how the Publicity team generated hype for CAPTISS; how the Academics team brought all our presenters together.

Thank you to all who contributed to CAPTISS in one way or another. This learning journey would have not been possible without all of you.”
