Student life at Stansfield College is exciting, vibrant, and diverse. The college encourages meaningful participation in co-curricular activities (CCA) for an active and balanced life. It promotes the arts, sports and adventure, while encouraging the spirit of leadership for students to learn, serve and lead by example.
There are a number of clubs / societies hosted on Friday afternoon, interacting with their peers to allow students to discover their hidden talents. Students will be able to meet new people while learning to improve their skills.
The Humanities Society
If your passion is in creative expressions, debating, critiquing or simply musing, the Humanities Society affords you the opportunity to discover your hidden talents.
This society encourages inter-disciplinary approaches to thinking about the world we live and encourages its members to organise, participate and facilitate a range of activities. The mission of the Humanities Society is to engage with global issues and to demonstrate and promote the importance of the study of the Humanities in the 21st century.
Community Service Club
The Community Services Club was formed in 2012 as part of the Stansfield College’s initiatives to provide students with a more enriching experience that would enable a balanced development of personality and outlook.
The Club was intended to offer service minded students with an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in community services and also to encourage this passion and orientation in others. This becomes more relevant in the context of the increasing importance attached to corporate social responsibility in the real world of business.
In the first phase of the Club activities, student volunteers guided by faculty mentors worked with the Handicaps Welfare Association (HWA), a non-profitable organisation dedicated to the welfare of the handicapped members of the community. The commitment and hard work of the volunteers were well appreciated by the organisation and we have been invited to continue our services.
Public Speaking Club
Public speaking is the process of speaking to a group of people in a structured, deliberate manner intending to inform, influence, and entertain the listeners.
In public speaking, as in any form of communication, there are five basic elements, often expressed as “who is saying what to whom using what medium and with what effects?”
The purpose of public speaking can range from simply transmitting information, to motivating people to act, or simply telling a story. Good public speakers should not only be able to inform their listeners effectively but also to change the emotions of their listeners. Garnering good public speaking skills allows students to develop confidence in their presentation of thoughts in their written examinations. It is a powerful tool to use for building confidence in each and every one of the students in undergraduate studies.
The Tai Chi Club was one of the physical activity club formed to cater for the core curricular activities of the College. The weekly sessions are lead by a qualified instructor of 28 years who is experienced in Wushu and southern martial arts.
Tai chi is a centuries-old Chinese martial art that descends from qigong, an ancient Chinese discipline that has its roots in traditional Chinese medicine. According to some records, tai chi dates back as far as 2,500 years. It involves a series of slow, meditative body movements that were originally designed for self-defense and to promote inner peace and calm.
Participants are taught the beginner level covering the 24-form Tai Chi Quan as well as basic Qigong; a series of breathing exercises which is also incorporated into the training.
Students who have participated in the sessions have found the series of wellness exercises relaxing and helping with joint movements and making them more agile. Regular Tai chi practice improves mental concentration and focus. The movements of Tai Chi will help the left and right brain hemispheres connect as they need to for clearer thinking.
At the end of each term students are given the opportunity to give a demonstration of what they had learnt during the termly Presentation Day.
Studying Law is synonymous with hard work and dedication. It is therefore the overriding objective of the Stansfield Law Society to introduce balance into its members’ lives by supporting their academic and social needs.
The Law Society represent law students’ academic needs through their involvement in the Law School and within the College. The Law Society aims to provide a mentoring platform and an informal personal support system between first year students and continuing students on the advance levels. The Law Society is also responsible for working on publications and organising study groups, court visits, inviting special speakers, running the mooting and debating competitions which take place throughout the year, and provide a challenging but enjoyable way for participants to develop their skills in legal research and oral argument.
The Society is also involved in organising and assisting with various social activities of the college throughout the academic year including teambuilding games, food fest, pub crawls and sporting events amongst others.
The Law Society also has an important role to play professionally. Its aims to strengthen relationships with law firms and organisations to give students regular opportunities such as skills development sessions, careers presentations, opportunities to network with representatives from various fields of law and related areas.
We aim to ensure that every member feels included in what the Law Society offers and students from non-law programmes are also welcome to become a member, and students from all years are entitled to stand for election to take on leadership roles within the Society.
International Student Club
The International Student Club is a group of international students which organizes, promotes and/or supports cultural, social and sportive activities that provide its members and other students a broader appreciation of the customs in the country of origin of its members. We are a club with members from over 11 countries around the world.
