Putting Away Differences to Raise Funds in A Fun Way
Cyberjaya, 26th September 2018 – CUCMS’ Foundation Student Association (FOSA) organized a Fun & Fund event to raise funds for the club. Students teamed up in groups and sold a variety of packed food, finger foods, fruits, desserts, refresher juices and more. There were 6 stalls operating and among the food and beverages on sale were Butter Chicken Rice, Meatball & Mashed Potatoes, Iced Milo, Brownies, Hotdog & Fries, Fruit Salad and more.
Students were not only involved in preparing the food items, they even came up with their own creative design of promotion boards with the best offers to get their products sold.
Academicians and staff, on the other hand, were also excited to check out what was being sold and how they could support the Foundation students.
“Being in the very first year of campus life, this is a great way to encourage students to get involved in student activities and experience the true meaning of campus life. Student activities like this will create opportunities for students to develop leadership skills as it requires total commitment and effective time management, so they can learn how to balance both”, academic and co-curriculum involvement”, said Ms. Nurul Nadhirah Binti Md Ridzuan, Project Advisor cum Head of Affective Domain Unit for Centre for Foundation Studies.
Students gained new experience of working together, taking up new responsibilities and acquiring practical entrepreneurial skills. Apart from raising funds for club activities, students learnt how to build good and positive relationships among one another as it involved teamwork and learning how to accept one another’s opinion despite differences of backgrounds and genders.
“We planned this project to raise funds for all the upcoming FOSA events planned by the Committee. We had positive support from all Foundation students as everyone was directly involved throughout the event. Not forgetting Ms. Nadhirah, our Project Advisor who was truly very helpful as she guided us on how to coordinate tasks and manage the team correctly. Most importantly, we were all able to put away all differences and join hands to work”, said Balqis Humaira, Director of the Fundraising Project.
The entire event lasted 3 hours at the UG level, alongside the Oasis Courtyard.
