20 August 2022 marked PBG’s first in-person cohesion event in 2 years after the COVID-19 pandemic. Our members travelled to the Bukit Timah Campus on Saturday morning to join in the activities meticulously planned by the PBG EXCO.
The morning started off in the familiar Level 3 Auditorium. Students listened attentively to Professor Helena as she gave an opening speech to welcome our new PBG members, as well as kick off the academic year.
Our Development Officers – Edwin and Joshua – also briefed our members on the basics of engaging in pro bono work. Concepts like maintaining confidentiality and the backbone of pro bono work were brought across to students.
Then, the students split up into their respective projects to get to know their fellow projectmates and project directors. The project directors took over with a briefing of immediate steps they had to do (applying to TalentConnect) or what they could expect over the year.
The day was concluded with a series of exciting station games – a staple for any cohesion event. Ranging from mind-simulating games such as Minefield to more physical ones such as Captain’s Ball, our members got to bond with their projectmates and project directors. A prize presentation for the station games followed right after, where the winners were awarded with attractive Grab vouchers for their stellar performance during the games.
All in all, PBG Cohesion was a great way to welcome PBG’s new members this AY, as well as to kickstart the various projects. We wish all members a fruitful year ahead!
