TMC Academy Student Orientation for June Intake
The day started with briefings conducted by our student services team. It is our duty to ensure every student is well informed on campus facilities, the support they can get from our staff and the benefits and privileges of being a TMC student.
Next up, our student club members took over the show. Student club president, Erick, took the lead by introducing the club to new students and gave a glimpse of the upcoming activities. Lunch was served shortly after!
The weather in Singapore has been brutal with temperatures up to 36°C, but it did not diminish the spirit of our young folks. Students were introduced to amenities and places of interest around the campus, including a mandatory trip to the National Library. Our international students especially, have always enjoyed visiting the library (and perhaps to seek respite from the heat).
The highlight of the day: visiting the Principal’s house. No one ever complained about too many games, and that was what happened at the principal’s house. Our students snacked on baskets of tidbits while getting to know each other through interactive games. Some students even went for a game of pool!
Meanwhile, at the other end of the house, TMC staff, including our lecturers, braved the scorching heat to prepare barbequed food for the students. This is what we call selfless dedication!
No orientation is complete with a speech from our principal, Dr Chin. He posed a mathematical question that got students cracking their heads and eventually bursting out into laughter.
Our Chief Executive Officer, Ms Yeow, also gave a welcome speech, touching on TMC’s core values: Professionalism, Affinity, Continuous Improvement and Empowerment.
Students were then invited to the BBQ party, where a variety of sumptuous food was served. TMC staff and lecturers took the chance to interact with students and it was all an enjoyable gathering.
The cherry on the cake was a prize presentation to the active participants of the day, when students received movie tickets, just in time to catch the array of newly released movies this June holidays.
