The energy level at the Club & Society Recruitment Drive in Taylor’s College Subang Jaya (TCSJ) today was nothing less than infectious. Students transformed the grounds of the college into an epicenter of activities and performances in their efforts to attract and recruit new members to join the respective club and society. It was like a scene from a busy stock exchange market with club members going all out through dancing and singing performances to attract the interest of the new students to join them. The gloomy weather and intermittent rain did nothing to dampen their spirits at all; a true display of ‘come rain or shine, the show must go on!’
The one-day recruitment drive saw a total of 45 clubs and societies open for registration to the new students from the Subang Jaya campus; with clubs like Taylor’s Performing Art Club, Taylor’s Model United Nations Club (TAYMUN), Leaders Club, Maths Club, Taylor’s Indian Society Club, Toastmasters Club and SKY Adventure Club among others.
Boey Xue Ling from the Free Arts Movement Club displayed some of her creative portrait drawings at the recruitment booth and shared that being a member of the club has encouraged her and the other members to express her emotions through arts and craft. When asked typically how long does it take for her to complete one drawing; this vibrant and creative student from the Cambridge A-Levels (CAL) programme said “…It takes about two to three hours for me to complete one portrait, depending on the photograph and the level of complexity…”
The enthusiasm and leadership displayed by the students in extra-curricular activities is a testimony of the importance of holistic education in line with Taylor’s College’s golden mantra of a continuous learning experience through Learning, Life and Leadership Skills.
