Area 18 Games day

March 7, 2015

This year, the Area 18 Games Day was held at Commonwealth Secondary School on the 7th March 2015. The Area 18 Games Day aims to build and strengthen the bonds and relationships between the Area 18 families through the means of games and activities.

This year, 11 units participated in the Area 18 Games Day. Apart from Area 18 units such as Hong Kah Secondary, Jurongville Secondary, Hua Yi Secondary, Bukit Batok Secondary, Bukit View Secondary, Fuhua Secondary, Commonwealth Secondary and Shuqun Secondary, we are also glad to have external units like, Anglo-Chinese School (Independent), Zhenghua Secondary and also Maris Stella High School to support and participant in the games.

The games are carefully planned and arranged by each of the Area 18 units. Besides having fun and winning trophies, our cadets had learnt important values such as, persevering till the games are over, respecting the opponent teams and excel in the games they play. Below are some photos from the event and also reflections by cadets from Secondary 2 and 3.

“I think that Area 18 games day was a rare opportunity for all the cadets as it is only held annually. As a Secondary 3 cadet leader, we challenged ourselves by stepping out of our comfort zone, organising relay for Area 18 games day 2015 and dodgeball for 2014. I participated in the captains ball, and I realized that even though it was just a game but surprisingly, it required a lot of our perseverance, sportsmanship, skills and teamwork. The event was being held under hot sun which required us to be perseverance and we were played against strong opponent which required us to have strong teamwork, sportsmanship and skills. When the game had started, we managed to pass the ball a few times before the other team intercepted and snatched the ball and hereafter scored a point. However, we did not give up and we gave a pat to our teammates’ shoulders to encourage each other. Unfortunately, we did not managed to get to the second round which was disappointing for all of us. After the events, our seniors encouraged and comforted us. Whereas, for the other games, our cadets displayed wonderful sportsmanship and defeated other strong competitors to win an award for the event. In conclusion, I think that I have learnt many useful stuff and indeed, had a lot of fun during the Area 18 Games Day. I am already counting down for the next Area Games Day!”

“ To me, playing games with my NPCC unit have enabled me to bond with them , alongside with units from other schools too! Playing these games competitively has helped me create a strong sense of friendly rivalry between each school participating in this Games Day. Which can help us as a whole Area 18 to help bond with each other. I have also realized the importance to have such a bonding session as NPCC not only is a CCA which acts as ambassadors for the Singapore Police Force, but we are also a one whole uniform group who upholds one common goal and motto. So as NPCC members, we naturally must develop a further and stronger sense of values and friendship to be able to further excel.”
