YO FRIENDS! We present to you our first event of the new term, our Welcome Dinner!! This year is slightly different as we held it at a new location, Hui Wei restaurant!
Not only do we have a super wide filled dinner prepared for you guys (9 course by the way), we managed to include some games for everyone. We want everyone to bond with the people at the same table which is why we had a special dedicated seat for you!🙂
The games included some general knowledge of Singapore & Sheffield and ending off with a PPAP challenge which was definitely one of the highlights for the night!
It was indeed fun for both freshers and members!
Thank you for coming down to this event as everyone (mainly for the freshers) has started settling down and get busy with Uni life, such event makes a great opportunity for everyone to mingle with all the Singaporeans once again! (when there is food, there will be Singaporeans :p)
Great poses you’ve got there my friends :p
It was definitely the time for all of us to take a break from school, as well as getting our Chinese food fixed. Well, food and happy tummies aside, we were definitely happy for the time given to catch up with the rest of the members, as well as take the opportunity to meet the seniors/freshers/new members. I say, it was definitely one of the best bonding time! Happy faces (:

“I have no regrets. I have spent my life, so much of it, building up this country. There’s nothing more that I need to do. At the end of the day, what have I got? A successful Singapore. What have I given up? My life.” – Mr Lee Kuan Yew, Hard Truths
We would like to invite you to a Memorial Service to honour Mr Lee Kuan Yew and his innumerable contributions to shaping Singapore to what she is today. During the Service, tributes and a minute of silence will be observed for the late former Premier. A condolence book will be available for you to pen your messages. The Memorial Service will be held on 14 April 2015 at 6:30pm. The Service will be held at Lecture Theatre 7, Hicks Building and formal attire (black and white) is mandatory. Being thousands of miles away from the island we are proud to call home, it was especially saddening to hear of Mr Lee’s passing. The Committee at Sheffield Singapore Society would like to offer our heartfelt condolences to the Lee Family.
UPDATED WITH PICTURES:
The Service started off with our Society’s President and Vice-President, Alexander and Sharmaine’s tribute to Mr Lee before a couple of our members took to the microphone to express their thoughts.
A minute of silence was then observed before the pledge was recited. After the service, a condolence book was at the front of the LT for Singsoc members to pen their condolences and well wishes to the Lee Family.
The condolence book will be handed over to the Singapore Embassy in London to be given to Mr Lee’s family.
Besides our AGM which will take place this Friday, 6th March, the CNY dinner was the very last event organised by the current committee.
Going with the theme of CNY, we had hotpot to fill our tummies. Not forgetting, the Yu Sheng which we were extremely sure everyone will definitely miss it. Therefore, we had the restaurant serve Yu Sheng for every table. P.s, it was a generous amount of Salmon! (:
In any case anyone felt bored during the dinner, we prepared a bingo game as well as a lucky draw!
Here’s presenting our Bingo and lucky Draw winners!
The usual protocol-
A big thank you to the 70 who came and made this event such a success! We hope you guys enjoyed as much as you did and thank you for supporting us the past year! (:
