Clubs

SCIENCE AND ENVIRONMENT CLUB

The science and environment club aims to stimulate intellectual dialogue concerning scientific concepts and discoveries and their implications on the environment around us. We encourage students to be broad learners in the world of science though quizzes, discussions, experiments and other activities. They further seek to create awareness on our constantly depleting environment and to think of new, innovative ways of improving and maintaining it for the betterment of mankind.

 

 

SPEAK CLUB

SPEAK, which stands for Sharing Poetic Energy and Knowledge, is the school’s poetry-oriented club. This is where like-minded, artistic people come together to share their works of art and poetry, improve their skills of performance, share their concerns about the art, and constructively critique each other, thus helping each other to improve our abilities in the art of words.

We meet every Wednesday in the college at 4 pm, occasionally watching videos that inspire us, sharing our spoken word, be it pre-prepared or freestyled, or even composed on the spot, during the meeting – or reading our written poetry aloud. We are also responsible for the annual Open Mic event, a concert where poetic, musical and other expressive talents are displayed.

Together, we aim to foster the artistic talents in each of us, and increase our appreciation of poetry. The club is not exclusive to solely those who write, or solely those who perform. Anyone with even the mildest interest in the art itself is welcome to be part of the club.

8-COUNT

8-count is currently the only dance club in the school. Members of the club are taught contemporary dancing skills as well as how to choreograph and perform at some school functions

 

 

 

PHILOSOPHY CLUB

The philosophy club holds meetings to have open philosophical discussions based on truth, principles of being, and human knowledge and behaviour, with more focus on moral philosophy and metaphysical philosophy. Through current events and real life scenarios as well as hypothetical ones, members share ideas and knowledge on human behaviour, ethics and the nature of being (existence) and our universe. Each meeting topic is decided on and the discussion led by one or more members of the club for separate meetings. Included in our presentations are references to, and examples from well-known philosophers like Kant, Aristotle and Plato.

 

 

DEBATE CLUB

The Debate Club has the aim of equipping students in SOS-HGIC with reasoning, public speaking and argumentative skills. Its purpose is to give all students the chance to express themselves eloquently, coherently and composedly.

 

PROGRAMMING AND ROBOTICS (PROBOTICS) CLUB

The Probotics club is an open door that welcomes all prospective members, both experts and rookies, in the field of programming and robotics. We have the sole aim of providing an environment where members are able to cultivate their skills through hands-on practices that mimic if not directly simulate those of professionals in the outside world. The club's ethos is not meant to be that of yet another classroom, but instead we seek to nurture the talents of members through careful guidance and collaboration with each other. Students with an interest in becoming programmers or engineers in either the field of electrical engineering or software engineering will greatly enjoy this club but all those with any interest in the club for non-occupational reasons are known to enjoy it as well.

                                 

 

COLLEGE MAG

The College Magazine is one of the creative hubs of the school. Here, students show off their writing skills in a way which is free-flowing and fun for them all. Students submit articles, jokes, columns, comic strips and a host of other media meant to highlight their talents in a manner that is mindful of the values of the school community and the diverse backgrounds of the student body. It is for and by the student community in every possible way: run by a core editorial team of IB1 students and aided by a creative team of students of all ages.
