Activities:

2018

 

To prepare the Secondary 3 cadets for taking over of the Unit mentally and physically, a Night Hiking activity was planned for them.

 

The cadets spent a few months planning the route to hike from Jurong East to East Coast Park, covering more than 20 Kilometers in distance. The five broad objectives of this activity are Character Building, National Education, Adventurous Spirit, Leadership and Military Awareness. During the hike, the cadets went through different stations, handling tasks and obstacles that honed them in these 5 outcomes.

 

After the activity, the cadets have understood the value and significance of teamwork. They have also become more resilience in the face of challenges.

NCC cadets have had the opportunity to be trained by both NCC teachers and military personnel from HQ NCC in various activities such as leadership camps, competitions as well as local and overseas adventurous expeditions.

 

One of our key programmes is the Aeromodelling Module where cadets learn about the theoretical and practical aspect of the Principle of Flight. Our cadets achieved badges in Bronze, Silver and Gold Wings assessments and also practised flying remote-controlled (RC) model planes. In addition, our cadets also went on short but exciting familiarisation flights on board RSAF aircrafts.

 

This year, we also saw the change of leadership as the secondary 3 students took over the leadership positions. Students’ leadership development is top priority in ZSS NCC (Air) and our cadets earned their ranks (highest rank awarded is Master Sergeant) as they led the unit in various leadership roles throughout their time in NCC.
