Annual Camp

June 2, 2013

 A 3 days 2 nights camp  was held at Jurongville Secondary School from 31st May 2013 to 2nd June 2013, involving mainly cadets from Secondary 1 to Secondary 3 with Annual events such as Annual Camp, Heritage Trail, Area 18 Games Day, Passing Out Parade and Sec 1 Orientation Camp being held together.

The combined camp was conducted with the aim to allow Secondary 1 cadets to step out of their own comfort zone; encourage spontaneous team participation; introduce annual events of Jurongville NPCC unit; exposing the unit to understand and appreciate heritage left by our ancestors; expressing their gratitude for the graduands; as well as forging the camaraderie among the unit.

Team building games and field cooking were conducted on the first day of the camp to allow Secondary 1 cadets to know more about themselves, their friends as well as their seniors. During the second day of the camp, the unit departed for Area Games Day hosted by Bukit View Secondary School, out of 8 games with 10 units competing in each game, Jurongville NPCC unit manage to clinch 2 bronze and 2 gold trophies in Jenga, Dodgeball, Floorball and Tallest Tower respectively. Without great teamwork, this would not have happened. A remarkable achievement indeed as compared to previous years.

The heritage trail was conducted on the last day of the camp, campers boarded the bus early in the morning, heading towards Changi Chapel whereby an audio tour was catered for them.  Following the trail, the unit headed off for Johore Battery where the largest gun was built by the British outside of Britain during World War II for defending Singapore. Over at the site, cadets witnessed the largest monster guns along with the cartridge rounds. Continuing on, the unit proceeded to Changi Beach, the last stop of the heritage trail, where the Sook Ching Massacre took place in 1942.

Despite the long journey travelling from Changi Chapel to Changi Village, cadets have displayed resilience and determination to finish what they had started. To sum up what they have learnt from the start of the journey, Total Defence lecture was conducted before home sweet home.IMG_2681
