Hazel Lim started this petition to Parents of TPWB members and

This petition shall represent Temasek Poly’s Wakeboarding Team 2021. The purpose of this petition is to persuade Temasek Poly’s Student Development & Alumni Affairs Department (SDAA) organisers of the upcoming CCA Virtual Fair 2021, to allow TP Wakeboard to participate in this year’s CCA Virtual Fair. On 5 April 2021, we were informed to put a hold on planning activities in regards to the upcoming CCA Virtual Fair. This would mean that our CCA would not be exposed to the new freshmen, hence, we can only insinuate that TP Wakeboard would soon be shut down. We were informed by TP’s SDAA, that Accountability and Safety of the students were the two main concerns and we shall address these two matters below.

Accountability: The TPWB EXCO will be enforcing a new measure whereby members partaking in wet trainings, will now be required to obtain parent’s consent beforehand via consent forms given out by us. Wet trainings were, and are not compulsory for TPWB members to attend.

Safety: TPWB members will be provided the required safety equipments such as helmets and vests during wet trainings. Members are also required to sign waiver forms to declare their wakeboarding experience level as well as declare that they are able to swim. Furthermore, our wakeboarding coach as well as Singapore Wake Parks staffs are well-trained to look out for and handle difficult situations. 

CALL TO ACTION: TPWB EXCO would like to reach out to parents of TPWB members as well as any parent of students who has intentions to join TPWB to sign this petition as a mandate for TPWB to participate in TP’s CCA Virtual Fair 2021. Your support as parents are vital and will mean more than words we can say to persuade Temasek Poly’s ‘Student Development & Alumni Affairs Department’ to allow our CCA to be featured. TPWB is a unique sport not commonly offered in tertiary institutions and it encourages youths to step out of their comfort zone to gain new experiences while their still young and exploring their hidden interests. We understand the rational concerns by Temasek Poly’s SDAA but we wish to let everyone know that we will take further precautions when conducting wet trainings, improve on our safety measures and that the safety of the Wakeboarding Team will always be prioritised.
Our seniors have come a long way to build this CCA to where it is today and it would be a pity to let their efforts go to waste. Besides, TPWB has contributed to Temasek Poly in many ways such as wakeboarding for ‘Regatta’, holding up the TP flag at Bedok Reservoir, participate in competitions (on hold due to covid) and we are an interest group with no fundings.

We urge you to sign this petition and give us a fighting chance for our CCA. #SaveTPWB
