You'll never fly, if you're too scared of the heights
You'll never live if you're just too scared to die
Everybody wants heaven, I know
But darling freedom ain't free, it’s a long road
You'll never find your place up there in the sky
If you never say goodbye…
All good things must come to an end and on 9th April, Jia Xin and Jeremy organised a farewell session for EMRS students. The session happened from 9am to 5:30pm in school. We lined up a wide range of special activities and games for this special day!
Bingo is a game where each person will be given a sheet of bingo paper with 5X5 grid of personal statements. Each person had to go around the group and ask people to sign on the grid that describes them.
Each team has to stand in a circle facing each other. Students then have to hold another student’s hands to form a knot. When the knot is formed, teams will then attempt to untangle themselves as fast as possible to emerge the winner.
Toilet Roll Game
Students have to form a circle using the roll of toilet paper provided. Each student has to tear off the sheets of toilet paper they would normally use and then pass the roll to another person. For each piece of toilet paper that they pull, they would have to say one fact about themselves.
There are two phases: "Night," when the werewolf may eliminate a player from the game, and "day," which the players have to vote to eliminate a suspect. These phases follow each other continuously until all the werewolves have been eliminated. Some players may be given a role with a special ability. Common examples include: Hunter, Cupid and Witch.
Thereafter, everyone gathered in the classroom to kick start the amazing race. Each team was allocated a station. Teams will incur time penalties if they fail to complete the station within the given time. The final pit stop was at SBM sky garden. The first team to reach the pit stop (sky garden) wins the game.
Station 1: Scavenger Hunt
The organizers prepared a list of items and the teams would have to gather all items on the list or perform tasks or take photographs of the items as specified
Station 2: Feeling Puzzled?
Each team was given a crossword puzzle with questions relating to events management. They had to complete the puzzle to move on to the next station.
Station 3: Gargle that Tune
The facilitator approached the one person from the team and told him/her a well-known song that was randomly picked. The player then must gargle that tune for the team to guess.
Station 4: Strangers and Timeline
For this particular station, the teams were given an option to pick a task. For strangers, the team had to approach strangers at the venue to accomplish the given task. For timeline, the teams was presented with six pictures of a celebrity and they must place them all in chronological order from the earliest to the latest.
Station 5: Pictionary
One team member would spin around 10 times. After which he/she would go to the facilitator to get the first word. The player would then run back to the team and attempt to draw that word out. When any of the teammates guessed the word correctly, that player would then run up to the facilitator again to get a new word.
Station 6: Turn Over a New Leaf
All players begin had to stand on one side of blanket. The players must attempt to flip blanket up-side-down without any players touching the floor.
Prize Presentation & Sharing Session
Prizes were given out based on the placement upon completion of the game. We bought prizes for all the teams.There was also a sharing session after the event. Students shared their opinions of EMRS and the improvements that can be made.
EMRS 2014 Semester 1 Team 2 & 3
In conclusion, we had a fun and exciting day embracing and appreciating the presence of each other.
We have gotten to know each other for this entire semester and now we will go our separate ways. Some will remember and some will forget each other, but we will always have a part of each other inside us.
