Matriculation & Orientation January 2017
- Start of School Essentials (timetable, booklist, etc)
- SHATEC Notebook (a handy diary for daily notes)
- SHATEC Lapel Pin (an initiation gift into the SHATEC family)
The new students were also introduced to the key academic personnel and their trainers during the talk. In the second half of the day, the students were served a sumptuous buffet lunch prepared by their seniors (existing SHATEC students), followed by ice-breaking and bonding activities led by the Student Support Services team. As a special surprise, the students were also treated to an exciting game of laser-tag, a popular interactive game in Singapore, which is played indoors where players attempt to score points by tagging targets and opponents with a Phaser gun. The purpose of the activity was to instil notion of teamwork, which is an important value for all aspiring hospitality professionals. The highly realistic combat simulation soon had the students deeply engaged and valuable friendships were forged as they worked together to overcome obstacles to complete the challenging gameplay.
