AV Media & Computer Club (AVMC)
Prior to 2009, the AVA Club and Media Club existed as separate entities, functioning with total autonomy from each other. Each CCA had its own committee and members to assist the teachers in-charge in running the CCA.
In January 2009, the AVA Club and Media Club were merged. The rationale for this merger is to:
- Combine and therefore better utilise the resources of the two CCAs.
- Enlarge the scope of activities for student members.
- Provide more opportunities for students to be involved in school events.
- Provide a useful service to the school with a close working relationship with external partners.
The specific roles of the new AV Media Club are to:
- provide an avenue of expression for our students.
- Support the school in school events by taking photos and video recording of the events and manning the PA system.
- Document school events through the use of notice boards, newsletters and the school portal.
- Keep track of photographic equipment for loan during school functions and events.
- Provide training to members in journalistic skills.
- Participate in service-learning by serving the community.
Students will be developed in the following ways:
- Training in technical skills such as operating the school’s PA system.
- Training in video production skills such as scripting, camera handling and editing.
- Training in journalism.
- Training in archiving methods.
- Providing avenues of expression through a newsletter, library notice board and TK portal.
- Going on outings to advance their skills.
- Participating actively in school events as student reporters.
- Tapping leadership opportunities.
- Tapping opportunities to serve the community.
- Organising school-wide competitions.
“Good photos are like good jokes; they lose their appeal when they require explanation. Here at AV, we accept and celebrate all forms of photographic art and there are no boundaries.”
