Besides bonding through activities, SB staff and students set the record for formation of the largest orange circle.
It was a sea of smiling faces as SP Business School (SB) staff and students joined hands to successfully set the Singapore Book of Records for the Largest Human Formation of an Orange Circle.
Held on 23 October as part of SB's inaugural Orange Day, Director Mr Reginald Wee said the achievement is something staff and students can be proud of. “So, three cheers for everyone for making this record together!”
But the effort was more than just to break a record. It contributed to Orange Day's aim of creating networking opportunities and bonding among staff and students from all eight courses.
Mr Wee said: “Together, we were more than just 1,960 individuals. As a school, we made a record and it is something that we can remember and relate to in the months and years to come.”
"The circle is the most natural shape that is often seen in nature, and yet, is the tightest one, mathematically speaking," he explained. "This is what SB strives to be: a natural and tight-knit community of inspired learners.” The colour orange was chosen because it is SB’s official colour.
Other than the record-breaking event, the day was filled with fun-filled activities such as sports, game carnivals, a cheer competition, and a lucky draw. There was even a friendly match of captain’s ball with MediaCorp artistes Desmond Tan, Yuan Shuai and Jeffery Xu.
