ourCAPTconversations

HELLO CAPTains! Do keep an eye out for a new initiative to be launched by CAPT Support this week!

We’re nearing the middle of the semester already and the pace of workload and other commitments are beginning to pick up too – how about taking a moment to pause and have a good chat with friends to check on how they’ve been and how our experiences in CAPT and university life have been so far? Bring a friend and come down and join us on selected Tuesday nights starting Week 6 at 8-10pm at the Basement 1 cafe area for our first ever session of ourCAPTconversation!

Inspired by the national conversation initiative Our Singapore Conversation back in 2013, we too look forward to sparking off a new and ongoing conversation with and between fellow CAPTains to talk about how our university experience has been for us! In this process, let us come together and uncover the things that we value in our everyday life, and how these could help us to pay closer attention to our own well-being too! We hope to see you there

Looking Back

Looking Back: ACE Migrants Fledgling 2018

Last Saturday, in an event held jointly by the Ministry of Manpower and National Youth Council, some of our CAPTains engaged in a panel discussion on the changing narrative of creating a safe and fair workplace for migrant workers and explored Tuas View Dormitory. Natania Seah from Roc reflects on the experience:

“The tour around the Tuas View Dormitory was an engaging and intriguing experience. Despite being part of the ACE Migrants committee for a year, I had personally never visited a foreign workers’ dormitory prior to this opportunity by the National Youth Council. As such, I approached the trip with curiosity and with little knowledge of what to expect, eager to catch a glimpse into the lives of Singapore’s “invisible visible”.

The first tangible thing that struck me was the sheer size of the dormitory – spanning 8.4 hectares, it has a capacity of roughly 16 000 people. Available on the premises are clinics, several hardware stores, remittance services, a barber, and even a cinema. The idea of this whole separate, self-sustaining community existing within Singapore but not so-called “with” Singapore made me quite pensive – the dichotomy between the lives of Singaporeans, and the migrant workers who build up a country they have no idea about, was very stark to me in that instant.

The dormitory also has various amenities such as gyms, pool tables, dart boards, and air-conditioned reading rooms. While on tour, we noticed the clean, well-maintained grounds and large open areas. While assuredly impressive, as I shared later on during a group reflection, it is salient to note that this dormitory is among the best, if not the best of what Singapore has to offer in terms of accommodation for foreign workers. Overcrowding and poor sanitation are some of the many imperative issues that still exist. The efforts of civil society groups such as Healthserve, TWC2, and Itsrainingraincoats cannot be discounted in their crusade to better the lives of migrant workers in Singapore, of whom we should be more cognisant and appreciative of.”

As we can see from Natania’s reflection, the event was truly an eye-opening experience that gave our CAPTains many insights into the lives of migrant workers in Singapore. If you’re interested in engaging in similar events, do keep an eye out for more from our ACE committee!
