TR Strike System

Dear CAPTains,

In a bid to protect our common spaces, we have decided to implement the TR Strike System ⚔⚔ This will be done for Theme Rooms 1 & 2 (the kitchen and music room). Anyone caught violating the TR rules will be given a strike :x:. Three strikes, and you’ll be banned from booking AND entering the TR. This ban will last for the entire AY. The rules are summarised in these posters, but if you want to read them in full, these are the links:

1) TR1 Rules: https://docs.google.com/document/d/12u46_5yC45OzKvySuukhCSn6oMYrEwPzLTZ3wz5nV_U/edit?usp=sharing
2) TR2 Rules: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-fbT0v1JEChvD-KX8AnVW7VMe2s7jcNqxJLudmsldCg/edit?usp=sharing

Please adhere to these rules but just in general, think of other users when using the TRs! Make the TRs a pleasant place for all to use.

Still with love,
Clubsocs

Breaking Point

Hello CAPTains!

CAPT Support’s very first campaign sought to bring the issue of mental health into the light, that everyone has mental health experiences and we should take care to identify and address these experiences, least they accumulate to cause us further troubles. Having gone through opening publicity and an engagement activity where we went through a day through a CAPTain’s eyes, we would like to end off the entire campaign with our closing pubs. It’s located at Lift Lobby on Level 1 and we hope you will check it out! It’s hard to miss!

We will also be introducing a new campaign this week;
Do you ever experience times when the stress just accumulates where you reach a breaking point?
This is a very common experience that can happen to anyone, anytime.

CAPT Support Campaign
Breaking Point ” will focus on providing information on what exactly is this ‘breaking point’, how this comes about, as well as how to cope with this.

If you want to find out more about how to cope in times of stress, and how to help other people through this, come down for our engagement activity this coming Thursday (25 Nov) at SR5. We’ll be having different times slots between 8-10pm ☺
Hope to see you there 🙆🏻💕!

Looking Back

Looking Back: G4me Night

As we juggled with midterms alongside the usual rigour of school, its no doubt that the past few weeks have been super hectic for the bulk of us. Yet amidst the intense hustling, EXA managed to put together G4me Night, a collaboration event between CAPT and RC4 that involved games, food, and most importantly, bonding between the colleges. Jerome Yong, one of the organisers of G4me Night shares his thoughts on the event:“On Week 8, EXA held G4me Night in collaboration with RC4. The event was organised to provide a platform for CAPTains to get to know people from RC4 through a night of fun and games. As the event was organised after the mid-term examinations, it gave them an opportunity to momentarily unwind and take their minds off the pressures of their academics.

The event was attended by a small but fun-loving group of CAPTains and RC4 residents, and kicked off with both residents of both colleges streaming in and mingling with one another. It was heartening to see CAPTains and RC4 residents putting aside their college affiliations to mix around freely with one another, making new friends in the process.

A variety of exciting games were played during the event, with each game deliberately designed to foster collaboration and friendships between CAPTains and RC4 residents. These games ranged from a Trivia Challenge, where participants had to answer trivia questions pertaining to both NUS and general knowledge, to a Relay Race, where participants had to complete a series of mini-challenges to win the game for their team. Other games included Blindfolded Bowling, Test Your Memory and In It to Win It. Indeed, there was much laughter and good-natured banter during the games. Before the closing of the event, the participants were treated to a sumptuous supper of large cheese fries, naan and butter chicken from Ameens, as well as a Family Feast from KFC.

EXA would also like to take this opportunity to thank CAPTains and RC4 residents for attending the event and displaying so much enthusiasm during the activities.”

Missed out on this bonding experience? Don’t fret – there are plenty of others that are soon to come. For starters, the Inter-College Halloween will be happening this week, so do visit the various haunted houses to get to know fellow CAPTains and residents of the other colleges too!
