The SHS Student Conference 2015 was held on 18 March 2015 from 10am to 2.30pm at LTK foyer. As we had a mini roadshow on 10 March, we were only left with 8 days to plan for the event. We had to liase with SHS side on many things such as the layout, number of poster stands, signage, registration list etc. We encountered several problems along the way and also during the event day itself, however, together with our supervisor, Mr Sudesh, we managed to overcome it and make the event a successful one!
The event had a blog and we were task to update the blog before the event.
This is the poster and programme flow for this year:
Here's a screenshot of the blog:
During the pre-planning of the event, we did up the signage, banner and decorations for the event as well.

In conclusion, it was a great experience planning and executing the event. Although there were some problems along the way, we managed to overcome it and make the event a successful one! On behalf of Team 2, we would like to thank our supervisor, Mr Sudesh, and also Dr Bala, Ms May Yeok and other SHS staff for giving us the opportunity to organise the event. We would also like to thank them for their support and guidance. Without them, the event will not be a successful one.
