On 13 July 2019, close to 600 Secondary One students were sworn in as National Civil Defence Cadet Corps (NCDCC) cadets at the NCDCC Affirmation Day 2019 held at Heartbeat@Bedok. In its effort to champion community first responders, the NCDCC held its Affirmation Day in a public place for the second consecutive year.
The event was graced by Mr Amrin Amin, Senior Parliamentary Secretary, Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of Health, and witnessed by the parents of the cadets. Building on the theme for this year’s NCDCC Day, which is ‘Serving with Passion’, Mr Amrin encouraged all cadets to seize every opportunity to develop themselves and become committed youth leaders, and to serve beyond school or at home, but in the larger community.
“As NCDCC cadets, you have the opportunity to inspire and motivate others towards civil defence volunteerism and community first response. Indeed, I encourage you to look beyond your time as a cadet, and to continue to volunteer regardless of your stage in life,” said Mr Amrin.
Congratulations to all newly affirmed cadets and we look forward to you serving the community with pride and conviction!
