Apologies for the slightly short notice, but the Easter Formal has been confirmed! Come over and relax from your studies (yes, again!) in what may quite likely be your last event before the exams. And while you’re there, congratulate our sports contingent for a great victory in the Oxbridge Games last week! Also this week, a few amendments were made to the parenting scheme. And for those involved in Malaysian Night, you are cordially invited to the MNight dinner! (in a separate email).

3. Parenting Scheme Amendments

After receiving some feedback, the CUMaS Committee has decided to amend the Parenting Scheme slightly. The amended version is presented below.

It is the time of the year when we officially welcome another batch of freshers into our CUMaS family! We will be trying something very different this year that is CUMaS members will have the option to choose their respective “wives” or “husbands”. The fun part is that you may choose to propose to your prospective husband/wife however you wish. Alternatively, you may choose to have us allocate you a partner. Please note that:

  1. Members should try to pair up with members from other colleges and/or subject, so that it will be easier for the Welfare Officer to allocate kids.
  2. Choosing parents outside of your respective cliques (if any) are encouraged.
  3. Marriages should not be based on pre-existing relationships.
  4. We will do our best to accommodate your marriage proposals, but we may have to reallocate spouses to ensure all freshers have suitable parents.

Please note that those who sign up for the parenting scheme are responsible for the welfare of their respective families, especially that of their kids – which includes welcoming and always checking up on their kids, meeting up with their families and being a friend/help where needed.

So, if you are interested in becoming parents for the incoming freshers, start spouse-hunting now and please sign up by 15th of July 2012 using this form:

(Only one person from each “marriage” is required to fill in the form)

If there are any enquiries, feel free to email our Welfare Officer, Stephanie, at welfare [at]
