National Police Cadet Corp.
Mission & Vision
The MISSION of National Police Cadet Corps is to develop our members to be active citizens and community leaders, by working in partnership with the Singapore Police Force to fight crime and keep Singapore safe.
The VISION of the National Police Cadet Corps is to become the best youth organisation in Singapore, one that actively helps to make Singapore the safest place in the world.
In accordance with our mission and observing our objectives, we believe that our association with the National Police Cadet Corps will:
1) ENSURE our growth by exposing us to a challenging environment, which, in turn, will imbibe us with leadership qualities, strong character and civic, social and moral values.
2) ENLIGHTEN us on the role of the Singapore Police Force, help to build a stronger bond of friendship with them, and so lead to a safer place for all in the country.
In 1987, the year the school was inaugurated, Riverside (RS) National Police Cadets Corps (NPCC) was established. Since then, RS NPCC has seen an appreciative increase in membership of the Corps. With a current strength of approximately 130 cadets, RS NPCC is the largest uniform group in the school.
Trainings cover various fields ranging from hard skills, such as drills, campcraft and physical training, to soft skills such as leadership, mentoring and debriefing, etc. These trainings are aimed at challenging our cadets both mentally and physically, developing their character, inculcating RS values and team building skills, so as to produce all-rounded individuals, ready to serve the community.
Continuity in the unit is ensured through involvement of instructors (Honorary Officers and Cadet Inspectors from Riverside Sec) who regularly assist the unit out of voluntarism and passion. They are invaluable assets from which our Cadet Leaders tap on for their experience and guidance towards becoming a better leader and mentor.
To equip our cadets with knowledge of the Singapore Police Force, cadets get to visit various Police establishments such as Police Heritage Centre, SPF/Tracom Training, Home Team Gallery. They also attend various courses, such as Civil Defence, Anti-Narcotics, Police Knowledge, Home Front Security, etc. On top of that, cadets will be trained to use the 0.22” revolver when they are in Secondary 2 and 3.
To allow our cadets to experience outdoor challenge and appreciate nature, training camps are organised for Secondary 1 to 3 cadets. Secondary 1 cadet will experience their first overnight stay in school with their seniors during the Annual Unit Camp. Secondary 2 cadets participate in Adventure Training Camp and Secondary 3 cadets Survival Camp at Pulau Ubin. Secondary 4 & 5 cadets participate in High Rope Challenge.
Further enrich our cadets’ experiential learning in NPCC, cadets from our Unit are given opportunity to take up various enrichment courses such as 1-Star Kayaking course, Basic Fencing course and Dialogue in the Dark. Every year, we also conduct Value-In-Action programmes where the cadets take part in service learning activities that provide the cadets the opportunity to contribute back to the society.
