On the 27th of October 2016, the annual Senior Freshie Staff (SFS) night was organised by the second year students. This important night is held every year to facilitate bonding between all members of the Faculty of Dentistry. It continues to be an event that students, teachers and staff members eagerly await for each year. SFS night always held a special theme and this year was no exception. This year’s theme was “Pirates of the Caries-bean”.
At 7.30 p.m., all guests started to arrive at the venue, which was the auditorium of Balai Ungku Aziz (BUA). The VIPs arrived at 8.00 p.m. and everyone sang the national anthem followed by prayers. After that, the director of SFS night- Rebecca Ooi Qian En took the stage to deliver her speech. Next, the president of DENSOC, Shangeetha Sellapan delivered her speech, followed by the dean of Faculty of Dentistry- Prof Dato’ Dr Zainal Ariff Abdul Rahman. The opening ceremony was held soon after, signaling the start of a wonderful night. A brief video was then played, introducing the members of the SFS committee who have worked long and hard to ensure the event was a success.
Finally it was the start of the highlights of the night. All the performances were from the first year students. The first performance was a great duet which melted the hearts of everyone. Next was a short drama with some martial arts action thrown into the mix. The third performance was a band performance which showcased the musical talents of our freshies. Last but not least, audiences were treated to an amazing Kpop dance which wowed the crowd. In between each performance, lucky draw and game sessions were carried out with the audience. After the performances ended, the VIPs were presented with souvenirs as a token of appreciation and everyone shifted to the hall downstairs for dinner. It was truly a memorable night and in my opinion, definitely one of the best SFS nights to date.
