The Sports Sub-committee hopes to achieve a work-life balance by encouraging students to take part in our events and keep fit throughout the semester. The activities that are planned by Sports committee include Science Sports Games, illumiNUS and Inter-Faculty Games (IFG). Science Sports Games is an annual event where students engage in a wide variety of sports activities in competitive and non-competitive categories. illumiNUS is an annual night cycling event where students explore various places in Singapore, visiting a wide spectrum of landmarks and supper spots. Last but not least, IFG is an annual Inter-Faculty sporting event where Sports committee plays a part in organising the event and also providing welfare for our athletes.
The Welfare Sub-committee aims to look out for both the tangible and intangible welfare of Science students. This is achieved through initiatives such as Milo Van, Locker Rental, Ice Cream giveaways, animal interaction sessions and many more events which Science students can look forward to. The Welfare committee aims to make school more than just lectures and tutorials for Science students, while being the listening ear that Science students can talk and give feedback to. Their largest event is the Exam Welfare Pack, where Science students can enjoy packed goodies to motivate themselves through the tiring period before and during finals. The Welfare committee hopes that their efforts can improve the overall vibrancy of Faculty of Science, and ensure that the welfare of every Science student is taken care of.
The Science Volunteer Corps (SVC) Sub-committee aims to promote a sense of volunteerism among Science students by being an easily accessible platform for Science students to have volunteering opportunities. These opportunities are provided through regular programmes and ad-hoc events. The regular programmes include enrichment classes with the young children from Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) and Singapore Children’s Society (SCS), as well as elderly befriending with Caregiving Welfare Association (CWA). The ad-hoc events consist of Pack-A-Meal, Chinese New Year Celebration with the elderly from CWA, Little MARCHallers and ALIVE!. Through these programmes and ad-hoc events, the SVC committee hopes to spread the joy of volunteering among Science students, building a strong community of volunteers in the Faculty of Science.
The Project Angel (PA) Sub-committee provides a platform for like-minded individuals in the Faculty of Science to come together and engage in service learning projects, both overseas and in Singapore. These projects aid in the personal development of participants through experiential learning, and ultimately creating social citizenship in each participant. In 2018, the PA committee will be working with Thai Youth Community Foundation in aiding the rural communities in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Young children in this region lack access to clean drinking water in schools. The PA committee will be improving the access to clean drinking water in these schools through the installation of water filtration systems.
