CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER (CEO)’S WELCOMING REMARKS
First of all, let me congratulate the Student Council members for being elected by the
Kolej students to represent them in voicing their issues and concerns and
communicating them to the Kolej Management for their appropriate actions.
This means that you have accepted the responsibilities and challenges that are
inherent in the discharge of such duties. For example, it is normal that you will
experience frustration and demotivation in carrying out your tasks as the Council
members because decisions made by Kolej Management are not as ‘quick’ as or not
as ‘positive’ as you would expect. This is partly contributed to the fact that not all
decisions are based on rationality. A lot of decisions have to be made on political
It is hard for inexperience office holders (including the members of the Student
Council) to accept the reality of political decisions. This is understandable because
they normally have limited knowledge and short-term perspective on the implications
of organisational decisions. It is for this reason that Kolej Management is encouraging
the participation of students in decision making by giving the Council members the
opportunity to learn democratic process as well as exercise leadership skills in the
management of student affairs.
We hope that the information provided in this booklet is of use for the Council
members to operate effectively in the management of student affairs. It is also hoped
that the opportunities provided by Kolej Management through Student Council
activities will help improved their leadership and management capacity for the benefit
of Kolej IGS in particular and for organisations you are going to work with generally
after your graduation.
I wish everyone the very best in this undertaking.

STUDENTS’ COUNCIL COORDINATOR’S WELCOMING REMARKS
First of all, welcome to the Kolej IGS Students’ Council (KIGS SC) and for this,
congratulations. This marks the start a new experience for you where I hope you will
gain far more when you had ended your tenure as compared to when you had started.
I hope and I expect that you will be able to carry out your duties and responsibilities
diligently and reliably for the greater good of every single one of the students within
I encourage any one of you within the Council particularly those in the leadership
positions to be proactive and productive including grasping this opportunity and power
entrusted to you for you to showcase your abilities & skills and make good positive
changes into the lives and welfare of the students within the college.
The position that has been entrusted to you is a privilege and an honour. As such,
hopefully you will face this challenge professionally with integrity and ethics. Thus, I
hope you will be able to do your best in whatever endeavours that you will be involved
in and you shall take any challenges and difficulties that come your way with strides
One very important thing to keep in mind as a fellow of the Council is that, each
member work together no matter what with respect and care for one another. I
encourage each member to be your true self comfortably with fellow Councilmen and
Councilwomen. Therefore, humbleness is a great virtue within the Council and also
having happiness as well as fun without neglecting your duties and responsibilities.
This also means that each one of you are supposed to help, be kind, set example and
to unite the students within the College.
The platform has been laid for you and the opportunity is there for you to grab.
Eventually it depends on you grabbing it or not. However, I hope you do.
Welcome to the Council family and I hope you will create many happy memories and
have an enjoyable adventure with us.
