THE Laksamana College of Business (LCB) over the weekend held an orientation to welcome its new August/September 2017 intake students, which was fully organised by LCB’s Student Council.
For the first time ever, the orientation took place in Jerudong Park with the entrance tickets for students fully sponsored by LCB, according to a press release.
LCB had chosen ‘The Amazing Race’ as the theme for the event.
Five ice-breaking games were played to kick start the orientation – ‘The Reaping’, ‘Find Your Pair’, ‘Follow Your Instinct (Left Right)’, Form An Alliance’ and ‘Tie The Knot’.
The race began right after, consisting of 14 different games, some of which used the rides at Jerudong Park.
The games were ‘Guess What’s Inside’, ‘Scavenger Hunt’, ‘Leaky Pipe’, ‘Dice Roll’, ‘Pedal The Words’, ‘Bomb/Tri-maze’, ‘Prophecy Ball’, ‘Rip Off’, ‘Fingertips’, ‘Avoid The District’, ‘Beat The Speed’, ‘Archery’, ‘Time Zero’ and ‘Fit to Photo’.
There were 10 teams playing, with colours and numbers used to differentiate them.
Each team had a minimum of eight players and was led by a Student Council member.
The orientation focused on making the students interact with each other and also to influence them into using teamwork as a way to win the games.
In a way, having Jerudong Park as the venue of the programme levelled up how the students could think, exploring their creativity and having fun while doing so.
Most of the games were designed to challenge the students and to make them speak up, especially to one another.
The students also got the chance to get to know the Student Council members and college’s lecturers.
A prize presentation was held at the end of the orientation with the Chief Operating Officer/Deputy Principal of LCB, Sivarajah Subramaniam.
Superwater Marketing Sdn Bhd also supported the LCB Orientation activity by sponsoring Rainfresh mineral water for all the students who attended the activity.
