Chinese New Year Celebrations 2019

chinese_new_year_celebrations

"As part of their Chinese New Year celebrations, 9 of our NYP Alumni Volunteers returned to spend some time with the seniors at Pacific Activity Centre @ Treegrove Woodlands. Many laughs were exchanged over a mini competition of peeling oranges, hunting for CNY-related objects, and creating CNY-inspired decorations. The event ended with a mass Lo Hei, and many wishes for a prosperous and new year ahead!" 

Thank you once again to all our alumni out there who give back to NYP and the community in your own way. We hope more of you could join us at future gatherings.

Close to 100 alumni and their families joined us at the NYP Alumni Family Day 2018 held on Saturday, 24th of November on campus. It was a fun-filled day with booths set-up by our very own schools. Creativity saw no limits that day with Hans Art Gallere's Art Jamming Session for adults and Art Jamming Competition for children. The day ended with lots of smiles and happiness as the alumni and their families brought home their keepsakes and memories from the day. Do join us for such fun at our alumni events by keeping a lookout for the information on our website, Facebook and via emails!

SIDM
Alumni Industry Networking Night
1 February 2019

The inaugural SIDM Alumni Industry Networking Night was held on 1st of February to a resounding success! In an effort to strengthen relationships with alumni within and outside the IDM industry, develop partnerships and build NYP alumni camaraderie, SIDM embarked on this event for the first time ever! It was good to see many of SIDM's distinguished alumni gather to share their journey after graduation and their current endeavours. The keynote speaker at the event was Mr Jackson Aw, founder of MightyJaxx, listed in Forbes 30 under 30 in 2018.15 other alumni were given airtime to introduce themselves and their companies which led to conversations over dinner. The event ended on a positive note with alumni wanting to see more of such events in the future.

Inter-School Social Networking Event
28 February 2019

The inter-school social networking event for the alumni from SEG and SHSS was held on 28th February 2019 at T-Junction @ NYP. The event kickstarted with participants randomly assigned to groups. The main aim of this event was for the alumni from both schools to mingle and make new friends. After a networking session over dinner, participants were tasked to work in their assigned groups. They participated in an iconic picture hunt around SEG and SHSS school locations. The fastest group to complete the task with innovative caption and most “likes” on their photos on Instagram won prizes. This event enabled alumni from the two Schools interact and work with one another. The night ended with positive feedback from the alumni.

SERVING WITH A HEART

SHSS Mentorship Programme

A huge thank you to our alumni, Wang Zhihui, Michael Kam Suan Mang, Ler Ser Yeng, Jovin Cheang, Thomas Lee Cheng Hung, Zhuang Hongpeng, Sudirman Othman and Kwok Wing Chu for volunteering as Career Guides to the students from the School of Health and Social Sciences. This career mentorship programme, held on Tuesday, 22 January 2019 is a collaboration NYP has with Young NTUC. It was a fruitful evening with students meeting their potential mentors during the human library sessions and mentors addressing the students' concerns. If you are interested to be part of this journey, look out for our email the next time we call out for Career Guide Volunteers. You can make a difference in the lives of NYP students.

HELLO FROM ALUMNI!
  ZoeChua

LOVING WHAT I DO

Hello! I’m Zoe Cai. I did my Diploma in Financial Services in the School of Business at NYP. I graduated in 2005. The biggest take away from my alma mater is the 'prep' I received from the internship that I did during my studies. It helped me better understand the corporate world when I started working after graduation. But my passion had always been in Art.

HOW I FOUND MY FIRST JOB

Hello! I'm Nurul Jasmin. I sent over 70 job applications after graduation and only secured five job interviews. I did not expect that it would be so challenging to secure a job as a fresh graduate. It did not cross my mind to seek help from a Career Coach, but I found out about Careers Connect through a relative and decided there was no harm in giving it a try.
