Expedition Padang 12 to 20 Sep 2012 Padang Pariaman, West Sumatra, Indonesia 20 ITE College East – CD Lionhearters have successfully completed their 9-day Overseas Humanitarian Rebuilding Project in Padang, Indonesia from 12 – 20 Sep 2012. During this intense 9-days Rebuilding Project, the 20 CD Lionhearters had managed to raise and enhance the emergency preparedness skills and knowledge through the conduct of fire fighting and first-aid sessions and the Village wide Earthquake Preparedness Drill. The CD Lionhearters also assisted the local farmers near Sungei Ibur with a fruit tree planting community project. Through the project, they had the opportunity to interact with the farmers and learnt from them that other than economic reasons, the purpose of fruit free planting was to have sufficient food for survival in case the next disaster struck again. The CD Lionhearters had also helped the local villagers in Padang Sago to prepare the ingredients to make organic fertilizers. The village head later shared with them that their organic fertilizers recipe is patented. It is cheaper and healthier then the chemical fertilizers and has greatly enhance their harvest. The Earthquake Preparedness Drill which was conducted on the 18 Sep 2012, was the first village wide drill conducted by the local authorities since the last earthquake occurrence in Oct 2009. The Drill involved the local police, army, community leaders and village heads from the other 23 local villages.

Serving the orphans at Panti Asuhan Al- Ma’wali Yatama (Al-Ma’wali Yatama Orphanage) 26th March 2012 to 2nd April 2012 (8D/7N) Kota Batu, East Java - Indonesia 29 students from the three departments of the School of Engineering and 1 female student from the School of EIT bravely took the opportunity during the March 2012 vacations to be among the team of volunteers for the Overseas Community Service Project to Panti Asuhan Al-Ma’wali Yatama (Al-Ma’wali Yatama Orphanage) in Kota Batu, East Java, Indonesia. Besides performing various tasks to improve the orphanage, the team also had bonding sessions with the orphans. During this trip, we also bought many items to enhance the living conditions of the orphans there as well as providing the orphans with additional supplies of food. Most importantly, the group felt that they had achieved valuable experiences contributing in the project and that it had opened up their eyes to the different cultures within this country. At the same time the student participants now understood the difficulties that these orphans go through in sustaining their daily lives. Apart from that the students felt that their contributions had in one way or another liven up and enhanced the lives of the orphans. Nevertheless, they felt that they could have contributed more to this project and understood that this has been another avenue for them to contribute to society and the human race. This project has also made them realize the importance of empathy towards others and the importance of being humble and thankful for the luxuries that they have been enjoying all these while.

STUDENT CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM 16/05/12 Jamiyah Home for the Old Aged Jamiyah Home for the Aged is one of our newly adopted homes. Through the activities at this home, we hope to be able to: • To raise awareness and build the heart of passion towards the senior citizens among students. • To develop qualities of character, discipline, secular outlook and the ideals of selfless service among the youth to make them useful citizen. One of the classes that benefitted from this program is NM1201C. A typical outing to this home will include Cultural Performance by students, serving the inmates of the home and students’ reflection and post mortem discussion. In the reflection section, students were asked to write their views on followings before visiting the Old Folks Home • Write about your feelings about visiting older adults. • Many older people never have visitors and spend their days alone and lonely. Why do you think this is? • Do you think it's because we don't want to think about growing old? Why or why not? • Have you ever been in a nursing home or other seniors' care facility? How did you feel? • Do you think you made a difference in the lives of the residents? Why? • What did you learn about older people? • Do you think visiting older people is important? Why? Respecting and serving the elders is the way to go….. Keep it up!

Staff and students who were involved in this project are:

1. Abdul Suckoordeen LT/ME/CE 2. Tan Sok Poo LT/ME/CE 3. NM1201C Students

The No of students attended: 37 + 2 staffs. The superintendent of the Home appreciated that maximum number of students visited the home first time. Students learned how to interact with old folks and they learn responsibility – because the older people depend on them. The students learned to take active part in the lives of other people who need help. Social projects such as old folk’s homes helped the students to become socially oriented and bring them to a realization that helping others has to become a very natural part of their lives. I could observe some changes in their characters after visiting the old folk’s home at least for a day or two.

An INSPIRE & ASPIRE PROGRAM 22 Feb 2012 College East “In Conversations with …” is part of the An Inspire & Aspire Program where students from NUS Malay Studies Society came to share and motivate our students with their life experiences. Students involved were NM1201A, NM1101N, and a class of students from FCT. The objective of this program is to inspire our students and to help improve their study and time management skills and challenge them to stay positive & focus. Key learning points shared by the NUS Malay Language Society students in the dialogue with MET students were : 1) They shared their own failures and struggles in life and in their studies. They thought that studying in NUS was never possible for them but their determination and peer support proved them wrong. It is possible for our ITE students to succeed academically too. 2) There exists a perception that they are "failures" because they were not doing well in secondary schools but one must be strong to prove people wrong. Your friends who passed secondary school well may be in poly or Uni, but when one study hard at ITE, going into the poly and even Uni is possible. 3) Don't let negativity affects you or limits your ability and performance. Work smart. Dare to look far and dare to dream. Do not let friends who are not studying hard to pressure you. Instead pressure them by studying hard yourself go against negative influence by being positive. 4) Make the best of where you are studying regardless of whether the course is your choice of study. 5) Undertake individual as well as group study strategies. 6) Know your learning styles and best learning place and time. Have sufficient sleep. 7) Important to focus and give priority to learning in college. Manage the distractions of family problems and friends. 8) Know that success is not about getting "As" but gaining meaningful knowledge that will be useful in life.
