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!
