 Subject: Second reminder on protocol for opening ceremonies and dress code for students

Please be reminded on the following:

(i) Second reminder:  For opening ceremonies, the chair of the person is to give its opening or welcome speech first. The GOH (Guest of Honour) is to speak last.
On a few occasions as informed by Prof Chuah, the GOH (example, he was the GOH), was asked to speak FIRST followed by the student chair person who gave the welcoming speech. This is wrong protocol

     Student / chair gives its welcome speech FIRST
     THEN, the GOH to give its opening speech.

     If there is a VIP with the president, then the protocol would be:

                (a)  Student Chair person gives the welcome speech
                (b) Address by President
                (c) Opening speech by the GOH

 In other words, the GOH opening speech is always the last.

(ii) President raised the issue of dress code.

    (a) ALL students who come to DSA, if not properly dressed are to be
        reminded of the dress code. For example, students who go to lecture
        in slippers or shorts. (of course this does not apply if the student
        were to attend some sports events)

    (b) ALL students who participate in competitions (NOT sports competitions), but competitions such as quizzes, etc are to wear APPROPRIATELY. NO mini skirts, shorts, sllippers, etc.
