Looking Back

Looking Back: Family Night 2019

Last Sunday, our College welcomed family members of CAPTains during our annual CAPT Family Night. The planning committee reflects on the evening:

“First of all, a very big thank-you to everyone who made CAPT Family Night a success!

It was an eventful night as CAPTains and their family members came together to immerse themselves in the fun-filled ambience together with meaningful sharings by CAPT’s various Community Engagement (CE) committees.

An evening put together by various CAPT student groups, it included music performances and even homemade delights from CAPT’s very own Baking and Coffee Interest Groups.

A poster exhibition also showcased some of the modules offered in CAPT, as well as the out-of-classroom learning experiences available to all CAPTains.

Additionally, in this year’s iteration, family members got a glimpse of the vibrant neighbourhood cultures in CAPT that was held within the various Neighbourhood Lounges. From photos and videos immortalizing the most memorable house events to some of the iconic ‘house’ food prepared specially for family members, the five Neighbourhood House Committees worked hard to put each of their unique cultures on display.

All in all, close to 300 family members visited the College and enjoyed a relaxing evening together with our fellow CAPTains.

With love,
CAPT Family Night Committee 2019”

Thank you to CAPT Family Night Committee 2019 for a wonderful evening enjoyed by both CAPTains and their family members!


CAPT Support Neighbour/Peer Supporters

Hello CAPTains! ❤
CAPT Support is excited to introduce your Neighbour and Peer Supporters (NSPS) for the coming semester!
Posters introducing each of the NSPS from your houses will be put up on your house noticeboards. Do check
them out when you have the time and get to know your friendly supporters!

Coming from all neighbourhoods, the NSPS are CAPTains who understand the importance of mental health
and seek to provide a safe space and a listening ear to those around them. As the Peer Supporters are involved
in Support Space activities, Neighbourhood Supporters take a more centralised role in supporting and reaching
out to his or her neighbours who might need a listening ear. That being said, do feel free to approach any of them!

But what can I talk about?
Anything that’s on your mind! Be it to talk about your day or week, to share about any personal struggles you
may have, or even to ask questions about how you could further support your own friends, our Supporters are
glad to open their doors to you.

Each Supporter has gone through training in peer supporting skills through workshops conducted by the
University Counselling Services (NUS) as well as regular internal training.

All the best for the coming week ahead! Remember to look after yourself and give yourself tiny breaks and
self-care even as we embark on our tutorials and assignments.

With love,
CAPT Support 💓
P.S. Do look forward to our upcoming CAPT Support events throughout the semester!
