Malaysian Club End of Year BBQ

Malayasian eoy bbq

Thanks to the grant approval from round 7, our club managed to organise yet another successful event to wrap up the year with a perfect ending on a perfect night. In the beginning we had the plan of having a BBQ night around the campfire with both our club members and committees. However, the rainy weather did not grant us the opportunity for that. Despite that, we had a great night to remember. To our great surprise, our new club member have been very supportive and devoted to the club, it's mostly been the members helping out early in the evening preparing the food and cleaning up as well. It was definitely a great night to remember with deep conversations and entertaining games. 

We felt the need to emphasize our appreciation towards ASA for not only the grant approval but also all the help given. It would have been impossible for us to develop the growth of our club without all the assistance. This will be our last event of the semester and as cliché as it sounds, thank you!

Beta Alpha Psi - Meet the Grads event

We are hugely thankful to ASA and the committee for providing our grant. It allowed Beta Alpha Psi members to interact and make connections with professionals and other students at a number of events. We hosted a “Meet the Grads” event where we had 6 guest speakers from firms such as KPMG, ANZ, EY, PWC and Auckland Transport who spoke about their experiences leaving University and entering the workforce. Their advice and Q&A session was very valuable to our club members. The most recent event we hosted was a Mock Interview. This entailed an associate recruitment consultant from Walker Anderson performing an exemplar interview for our club members to watch. With our guest sharing her advice and expertise, it gave students great insight to what employers are looking for.

Football Club enter Football Fix competition

FootballFix MixedOur first attempt at creating an all gender mixed MAFC team has been an amazing success. There are committed male and female students attending all of the games in the competition, and from their feedback it appears they are all enjoying themselves and having fun. Due to the success we have had with Football Fix in term 3, we have decided it is totally worthwhile to list another mixed team in their competition for term 4.

Malaysian Club celebrate Malaysian National Day

MalyNatDay1

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.

MACS - 2 speaker events

The previous round of grants provided us the incentive and means for us to host a series of successful events with two speakers with extensive journalism industry experience; Jayne Atherton who has worked in BBC Breakfast and Sky News, and Stephen Hammond who was an editor for the Guardian Media Group. Our second event with Strahan Wallis from PR firm Porter Novelli also proved popular with students from other educational institutes coming for the presentation. We also had Elaine Koller and Anna Dixon from PRINZ discuss their professional experience and knowledge within the public relations industry.

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.
