Team Bonding Event for New EMRS Students @ NYP

On 26th December 2013, team 4 of EMRS (Events Management& Road Show) conducted a team bonding event around the whole of business block from 9:30am to 5:00pm for the new batch of EMRS students. Activities included charades, island game, running man, whacko and station games. 

The overall ICs for this event were the members of team 4.The planning was done the week before the actual event, the logistics were done 2 days before to ensure we are on schedule. The safety of the activities were also checked by our supervisors.
On the actual day, we started off with a simple icebreaking introduction “game”, whereas everyone would write down a good and bad quality of themselves and the team members would guess who that person is when the game master reads out the card.

After that we shifted everyone out and split into 4 teams for the team building games
Whacko is a game where the “whacker” is required to whack the person whose name has been called out. The person which is called, has to make sure that he or she calls out someone else’s name in order to not be whacked!
Island Game
The island game is where everyone will split into group of 3s and each group will form an island. There will be a catcher and someone running away from him/her. The goal of the runner is to join in one of the island and the other end of the person on the island will become the runner.

After our lunch, we played charades for a little team bonding activity and hilarity!

 Running Man
 The running man is a game where everyone has a tag with their name taped on their back, the goal of the game is to either complete the mission. Each group has 5 members and they can either find

Water Scissors Paper Stone
This is a game where the participants are split into 2 groups. At any point one member of each team has to slide across bench and the goal is to have both team reach the other side. With the opposing team members bump into each other, they will have play scissor paper stone, the loser will have to move back to the queue and go for another try. The game masters has the most fun job as they will have to throw water bombs down at the bench!

 It was a successful event as everyone gets to know each other and overall it was a fun day!
