NUS Community Sports Carnival

On behalf of the College Office:

Dear CAPTains,

The NUS Community Sports Carnival is part of OSA’s concerted effort to ramp up Social Integration and Community Engagement in NUS.  To lend identity to this effort, OSA has created the “oneNUS” insignia, which signifies OSA’s commitment to the active promotion of integration in NUS to bring about a sense of togetherness. Through creating meaningful activities to build stronger bonds, it is an identity that our community can, hopefully and eventually, relate to and identify with.

The inaugural NUS Community Sports Carnival<> (NCSC) will be held at the University Sports Centre (USC) on Saturday 27 October.

The Guest-of-Honour will be Ms Sim Ann, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Communications and Information & Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth. This event will mark the finale of a year-long Community Sports campaign to raise awareness among NUS community on building social cohesion and personal wellness through sports.

Blazing NCSC is “DBS Battle Bay”, a water obstacle course designed for the adrenaline junkies.  Also featured at the Carnival is “Splashdown”, a mass swim happening at USC outdoor pool. In another segment, students will get to cheer on their peers at the finals of “Inter-Residence Games”.  Winners of the NUS Community Sports Photo Story Contest<> will also be announced on the day; the winning entries will be part of a travelling pop-up exhibition on Campus.

Getting Tickets:

To encourage interaction among different groups of peoples (such as local and international students) within the NUS community, a team of 3 comprising a mix of local and non-local will be eligible to purchase the team tickets at 50% off (or $15/team).

From now through 27 October, online registration to participate in NCSC will be open at road shows across Kent Ridge Campus and at the campaign portal<>.

NCSC is open to all NUS students and staff.

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
