Total Defence Day 2017

February 15, 2017

Minister for Defence Dr Ng Eng Hen’s Total Defence Day message

On 15 February, 75 years ago, Singapore fell, as British forces surrendered to Japanese invaders. In this video, I stand in the very room in the former Ford Factory along Upper Bukit Timah Road in which the surrender took place. Three and a half years of suffering and deprivation followed for those living in Singapore under Japanese Occupation.

This is why we commemorate Total Defence Day on 15 February every year – a reminder that only when everyone plays a part through Military, Civil, Economic, Social and Psychological Defence, can we ensure a Singapore that is safe, secure and sovereign.

40th Honorary Officer Investiture

December 16, 2016

Jurongville Secondary School NPCC unit would like to congratulate P/H/INSP(NPCC) Muhd Hairi upon passing out from the 40th Batch Honorary Officer Basic Training Course (HOBTC) with an investiture ceremony held on 16th December 2016 at Home Team Academy to mark the end of the course.

P/H/INSP(NPCC) Muhd Hairi is our fourth homegrown Honorary Officer (HO), he was previously a cadet in Jurongville Secondary School NPCC Unit, in which he served as the Executive Chairman for his batch. He ensured that weekly training runs smoothly by coordinating between the different committees. He later passed out from the unit and returned back to the unit as a Cadet Inspector. He served selflessly from 2010 to 2014 where he took care of weekly trainings, planning of camps and coordinating parades. He was eventually appointed the Unit Coordinator, where he upheld the training standards of the unit.

He was eventually enlisted in the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) and later on became an Officer of the SAF. He then went through a grueling and intensive Guards Conversion Course (GCC) where he eventually joined the elites of the SAF as a Guards Officer.

He is currently a student in Nanyang Technological University (NTU), reading Material Science and Engineering. His passion for NPCC remained strong over the years where he decided to join the 40th HOBTC.

Below are the thoughts of P/H/INSP(NPCC) Muhd Hairi after graduating from the 40th HOBTC.

“I entered HOBTC with the intention to start afresh and take away as much as possible from the course. I still remembered the phrase the Course Manager gave to the cohort on the very first day, “Open Eyes, Open Mind, and Open Heart.” The simple few words reassured me that this is the place I wanted to be at, a place that I wanted to learn from.

It was an eye opener meeting people from all walks of life, forging bonds through learning from each other and pushing through together. I wouldn’t had all this wonderful experience if I had never joined the course. The friendships I have made, will stay on with me for life and the stories shared will be passed down to inspire many others.

If there is a quote I live by, it would be, “Not anyone can be a leader, but a leader can come from anyone.” I hope I can passed on the flame in me, to inspire leaders of tomorrow.”

Lastly, JVS NPCC Unit will be looking forward to welcome him back to the big family!

Adventure Training Camp/Survival Training Camp 2016

September 18, 2016

The Adventure and Survival Training Camp (A/STC) is an annual event held at Pulau Ubin, Camp Resilience in hope to gain confidence, build character and leadership skills through outdoor learning.

This year, the A/STC is held on the 16 September to 18 September, an 3 day 2 night camp which is filled with programmes planned to test the cadets teamwork, communication skills and many more.

The programmes includes outdoor cooking, where cadets are given basic cooking equipments such as stoves, mess tins, solid fuels and  also food ration for the entire 3 days. Cadets have to cook their own food and learn to ration their own food for the entire duration of the camp.

Next, the cadets went through a series of high rope challenges. Obstacles was imposed in the path of the cadets as they journey their way through mid air, with safety precautions taken care of. The cadets must find ways to get over the obstacles to continue on and reach their destination. The highlight of the challenges would be the Flying Fox, which allows the cadets to get an bird-eye view of the campsite while ‘flying’ down from the tower.

The cadets are went on a mini hike on Pulau Ubin to get to know more about the island itself. The hike tested their mettle and perseverance as they walk up challenging slopes and battling their fatigues.

Cadets also get to go through water confidence courses such as jetty jump and kayaking.These courses had allowed them to know themselves better and to gain confidence.

Lastly, the camp ended on a good note, with a campfire held the celebrate the success of the camp. The campfire was filled with songs and cheers. Individual groups also had skits on display to entertain the audience.

The two emcees was Syaza and Nazrul. The 2 cadet leaders from Jurongville NPCC unit had demonstrated the spirit of beyond self. Despite their shyness and reserved nature, they challenged themselves and volunteered to be the emcees for the event. They faced the crowd to speak confidently even though they had never been emcees before. Good job Syaza and Nazrul!
