Malaysian Club celebrate Malaysian National Day


Thanks to the grant from round 6, we were able to create a successful event that we believe is very vital for our club development and also in enhancing the relationship between us and our club members. The event started off with our committee members arriving at the wonder room early to set up the room with decorations and posters. Besides that, some of the members and committees turned up with their own traditional clothing to support our event. When the members arrived, we walked them through the walls of posters about Malaysian culture and we also played a few rounds of spy-fall with the members to act as a quick ice breaker to help members know each other better.  Continued/.....

[email protected] feeds their members!

We are extremely grateful for the grant for food that we received last time. This has helped us to provide supper to the group, which has contributed greatly to the atmosphere and ability for students to connect well on Friday nights. The pizza, fruit, snacks, cold drinks, etc. that we have been able to provide has contributed to the success of the group.

The General Grant applied for in Round 2 allows us to provide food to the members of ComeUnity each week. Our members often mention how they look forward to the food on Friday nights and are grateful for what is provided. Also, we have had a number of successful social ‘pizza’ nights where we have invited other clubs at Massey to attend allowing an opportunity for networking by creating an atmosphere of inclusion. Having the grant available to fund such events as well as our Friday night events has been invaluable.

Our second event with Strahan Wallis from PR firm Porter Novelli also proved popular with students from other educational institutes coming for the presentation.

Badminton Club Update

Massey University has supported Massey University Badminton Club (MUBC) through many ways, particularly by providing a grant each semester for us to purchase shuttlecocks.  The members are excited and enthusiastic to join MUBC and attend regularly due to the constant availability of shuttles that meet their standard and expectation. We are looking forward for the upcoming semesters for new members, be it beginners or expert to join our badminton club. Many beginner players have picked up their skills and rhythm for every games played. Players with more experience were also happy to give guidance to the beginners and improve social and badminton skills together. All of these could only be achieved by maintaining good connection and relationship between the members, club, ASA and Massey University all together.

Legacy Conference Update - Student Life Club

"I had a lot of expectations about conference and what it would be like. My friends at Auckland Uni would always rave about it so I couldn’t wait to start university, join Student Life and finally be able to attend the camp I’d heard so much about. Being a part of the first year of Massey Student Life is exciting, and the conference was great for us to form connections with students on other campuses and see what Student Life is doing around the country. I think for our Massey representatives, the conference really helped us to see the potential we have to grow as a group and reach out to the campus. The lessons we learned, discussions we had and friendships we formed at conference have set us in good stead to be able to leave a lasting legacy on our campus." Molly Pottinger-Coombes
