NUS PEACE kick-started the academic year with the Student Life Fair 2016, held from 11 to 13 August in UTown, and we had a great time meeting all of you!
Thank you for coming down especially to see us, and supporting our mini fundraising effort for Uncle khoe’s k9! We managed to raise $252 throughout the three days, selling merchandise such as animal-themed socks, notebooks and multi-functional fridge magnets/ bottle openers. Here are some photos of our booth at the fair:

Happy faces after meeting all of you 🙂
The next event was the Welcome Tea 2016, where NUS PEACE held recruitment talks across all 4 committees: NUS PEACE, NUS CatCafe, NUS PEACE TDP (Therapy Dogs Programme) and NUS Paw Friends. We shared more about the specific programmes each committee had been involved in so far, as well as answering any questions in our Q&A session. After the talks, various groups mingled together with the project directors and committee members, to clarify further doubts on exco recruitment and job responsibilities. Here’s what happened that day:
Daphne, NUS PEACE’s outgoing project director, introducing our organisation
Kiran, NUS CatCafe’s outgoing project director, talking about our campus cats
Candice and Jolene, NUS Paw Friend’s newest project directors, appealing for volunteers
Linh, NUS PEACE TDP’s outgoing project director, introducing the programme
Potential NUS PEACE members among the audience
Thank you to those who applied for our recruitment interviews! We’re currently in the midst of decision, and would announce results by this Friday via email. Stay tuned for the results, and also the upcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM) later on!
All the best for this semester, and see all of you soon!
