A brief introduction about P/H/INSP(NPCC) Ivan Leong Wee Ren, Ivan first joined NPCC back in 2008 as a cadet in Jurongvillle Secondary School NPCC Unit and graduated in 2013. Fast-forward to today, he is currently studying in a local university which he chanced upon an opportunity to join back NPCC. This inspired him to come back as an Honorary Officer.

Below are reflections of P/H/INSP(NPCC) Ivan Leong Wee Ren on why he joined HOBTC.

“I decided to join HOBTC and come back as a HO because I hope that using my past NPCC experience as a cadet, and also my own life experiences, I am able to guide and impart certain values to the cadets, allowing them to grow into a better person.”

Lastly, JVS NPCC Unit would like to welcome Ivan back to the big family!

Below are some reflections by the Secondary 2 cadets that attended the course,

“Our First Aid course was held on 5th November 2019, during the course I learnt many useful and important skills on how to provide first aid to others. During the first half we were taught different types of injuries like choking, burns and fractures. Then we were provided with items to use for our hands on where we got to practice treating such injuries. During the second half we were thought when and how to perform CPR, the usage of AED and were also given time to do a hands-on session to try it out.

Using the skills I learnt that I am able to provide first aid to those in need such as during school activities or when anyone gets injured in public. Participating this course has allowed me to be more confident in providing medical help to those in need. After learning the skills I can now step forward in taking control of the situation if anyone is hurt.”

-LCP (NPCC) Sandi Noe Noe Htet

“I learnt how to administer first aid correctly and the importance of taking initiative to help the casualty. (Treating burn wounds, different bandaging techniques, helping someone who is choking, doing CPR and using the AED)

I feel that first aid is quite easy to understand and learn, and more people should learn about it too.”

-LCP (NPCC) Dana Koh

We hope that through this course, not only our cadets had fun but also gain confidence to be able to apply these skills in times of emergency.

The Secondary 2 cadets went on land expedition in Pulau Ubin, to get to know more about the island itself. The hike was a mini treasure hunting game where each group had to draw their own map as they get from NPCC Camp Resilience to Jelutong Campsite. Along the way the cadets had to decide an item and where would they want to hide it. At Jelutong Campsite, each group swap maps and hiked their way back to NPCC Camp Resilience based on that map. They are to find the hidden item at the checkpoint using their pacing and bearing, which was taught on day 1.

Through this land expedition, the cadets learned about the value of empathy where they put themselves in other group perspective to draw the map as detailed as possible to ensure that the other groups would not get confused while using it.

On the other hand, the Secondary 3 cadets went through a series of high rope challenges. The highlight of the challenges would be the Flying Fox, which allows the cadets to get a bird-eye view of the campsite while ‘flying’ down from the tower. Through this high rope challenge, the cadets are able to gain confidence and trust from the motivation of their GIs and group mates.
