WHAT OUR CADETS HAVE TO SAY
“When we first entered NPCC, we were all definitely hesitant and nervous because we had no idea what to expect. However, our initial worries were soon erased. In Secondary One and Two, we were introduced to the basics of the CCA such as drills and campcraft. While we trained hard to improve our standards, we also got much closer as a squad, learning to rely on and work with one another for the betterment of the squad. In Secondary Three and Four, we learned new skills and got to experience leading juniors. Although there have surely been tough times when things seemed impossible, NPCC has taught us to be resilient, perseverant and to never ever give up. NPCC has provided us with many opportunities to grow in leadership and confidence. Last but certainly not least, through NPCC, we have forged lifelong friendships and met people whom we can count on no matter what. NP times are truly fond memories that we will forever treasure!”— Batch 52 (Secondary 4 batch)
“NPCC may seem like a monotonous CCA to many: doing drills after drills after drills. However, being in NPCC made us realise that the CCA is way more than that: it is an enriching journey that we will never forget. From training our stamina by doing foot and rifle drills, learning applicable knots and lashes in campcraft, working together as a team to finish a pitch, attending engaging talks, taking Crime Scene Investigation courses, to feeling the adrenaline rush as we shot real .22 bullets with a revolver, we definitely have had a plethora of exciting experiences!”— Batch 53 (Secondary 3 batch)
“When we just entered NPCC, we had mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, we felt very nervous as it was the first time that most of us are in a Uniformed Group CCA and we did not know what to expect. On the other hand, we felt excited as we were looking forward to new experiences that NPCC can provide us.
Despite the initial worry, our experiences in NPCC so far have been more than enriching. Throughout this one year in NPCC, we have grown so much, both individually and as a squad to become much better cadets and more mature individuals.”— Batch 54 (Secondary 2 batch)
“When we first joined NPCC, we felt quite nervous as we were around people that we were unfamiliar with. However, our seniors have been very nice and kind to us, and we have been friendly towards one another. Now, we feel a sense of belonging to this CCA. From discipline to patience to teamwork to responsibility, we have learnt many values from NPCC and made new friends. Overall, we feel that we have learnt a lot from NPCC in the short month since we have entered this CCA.”— Batch 55 (Secondary 1 batch)
