The generation 4 SFs went through the 2D1N retreat at Aloha Changi Resorts from 6 to 7 August 2011, where every member had to go through the second part of the Basic Student Facilitators Training (BSFT II).
We gathered at Tampines Interchange at 9am in the morning, took bus 19 to Changi Beach Park, and took a short walk to the resort. We checked in at Netheravon Terrace Chalets B and C with Jaslin and Terrence when we met them at the reception area.
We first had an energizer to warm ourselves up, led by our president Jaslin, and we played “Kung-fu Master” together. Then it was all the members’ show now, each of the 10 of them have to conduct an activity each, and then conduct a debrief after his or her activity. The order for the 2D1N games was as follows: Waqas (Tank Commander), Thanh (Dogs and Bone), Kam Wai (Contact), Ken Juin (Clapper Trust), Zihui (Broken Squares), Shu Hui (Origami), Pradeep (Tag the Tail), Mohana (Balloon Chain), Ngan (All Abroad), Yuan Ting (Find the Ball).
“Tag the tail”.
The gen 4 SFs were able to brush up their skills and learn from one another. The “participants” reviewed the conducting SF’s performance, gave feedback and discussed on areas to be improved on. During the camp, Terence gave them a recap on facilitation and debriefing techniques, program design and risk assessment (RAMS) during the training. The gen 4 SFs also brainstormed among themselves the upcoming activities to organize in the future.
The gen 4 SF had their own bonding activities throughout their camp. These include playing ball games during their free time, waking up to cook breakfast together at 7.00am in the morning, play monopoly deal before sleep etc.
After the retreat, the gen 4 SFs have finally passed the BSFT II training. The 2D1N camp was so enjoyable with all the fun games, and the gen 4 SFs got to know one another much better and formed a greater bond together. Hooray!
