14 Student Development LSCT – Overseas Trips LSCT Overseas Trips
Every NP student should have a chance for a subsidised overseas trip (however please read the fine print) Generally, 50% for shorter trips to Malaysia/Indonesia Generally, means tested for trips >$500 – so if you are well-off, you may be not be subsidised at all. How to sign up? Read your school s and check the notice boards around the lifts for instructions. Note: Not all the trips are open to first year students.

15 Student Development LSCT – CCA Points 3 pieces of advice
Make use of this opportunity to enrich your student life by joining clubs and groups in LSCT and NP. Take part in activities because you like them not because you need to accumulate points. Do not spread yourself too thin by joining too many clubs. if you really want to strategise…

16 Student Development LSCT – CCA Points
Year 1 – participate in many but towards 2nd semester choose one club to specialise in (club membership only 2 P points) Year 2 – try to e.g. get into exco or organise events (L points) join YEP, community service (S points) represent NP in event (R points – a bit more difficult) Year 3 – handover to year 2’s, spend a bit more time on studies Spread out work because points are given for one role per event e.g. if you are MC, usher, stage crew for an event – still only credited for one role. Points are given for responsibility held or degree of representation. Points are not given for number of hours spent in preparation or work (except for community service).

17 Student Development LSCT – Student Groups
Societies and interest groups within LSCT LSCT Society – Dr Koh Tse Yuen, Mr Imran Green Volunteers – Mr Eng Boon Hwee Community Service Interest Group – Ms Wu Siew See Hort Club – Mr Saiful SOAR – Dr Sara Zaman LSCT Ops – Dr Low Pey Yng Aquaculture Group – Dr Timothy Tan Recruitment should start soon or already started. If you have any special talents like music, writing and videography you cannot find a suitable avenue for them, please approach me or your advisor.

18 Student Development LSCT Getting the message across..
