Overview

In Fairfield National Cadet Corps (Land), we aim to develop our cadets’ self-discipline and initiative to help others. We believe strongly in the ‘Cadet Strong’ framework, where all cadets have a resilient mind, fit body and committed heart.

Unit Vision

A Unit to cultivate cadets to be extraordinary youth leaders who embody the core values of the Corps.

Unit Mission

Through fun and adventurous military-related activities, we hope
-    To build a strong sense of camaraderie in all our cadets,
-    To nurture our cadets to be resilient, resourceful, responsible and respectable,
-    To provide opportunities for our cadets to learn, grow and to inspire their peers,
-    To develop our cadets’ social awareness and personal conviction to be a better person and citizen.

History

Fairfield’s NCC Unit started in 1968 as a Girls Unit, which was eventually closed in 1982. It restarted in 1985 as a Boys Unit, and we have grown strength to strength since then as an esteemed uniformed group. Our Unit is especially proud of our Precision Drill Squad (PDS) which has attained commendable results in HQ NCC competitions thus far. This stands testament to the unwavering commitment of our NCC (Land) Cadets, Cadet Officers and Teacher Officers to the continual growth of our Unit and our Corps.

Highlights

School-based Activities

Our weekly Friday trainings consist of physical training, sports and games, foot drills and the teaching of Individual Field Craft to equip our cadets with basic military knowledge. Our Wednesday trainings are for Secondary 2 and 3 cadets to train to be part of our esteemed Precision Drill Squad.

Apart from usual trainings, we organise activities for our cadets to allow them to experience the outdoors and learn more about Singapore. The main highlights are camps which are organised by our Secondary 3 Cadet Leaders:
-    March Orientation Camp
-    June Camp
-    End-of-Year Camp

NCC (Land) Cadets have had the opportunity over the years to participate in other activities during trainings or camps, including:
-    Orienteering at Gardens by the Bay
-    Night Cycling at East Coast Park
-    Dragon Boating and One-Star Kayaking Certification
-    Bubble Soccer at Kallang
-    Values-in-action Projects

NCC Headquarters (NCC HQ) Activities

NCC HQ organises yearly camps such as:
-    Camp Forge for Sec 1 Cadets,
-    Camp Steel for Sec 2 Cadets,
-    Specialist Course for Sec 3 Cadet Leaders.

Our Unit also regularly sends cadets to participate in other HQ-led overseas activities. These opportunities include physical activities such as mountain trekking in Mt Ophir or Xue Shan (Taiwan), and other military exchange programmes such as Exercise Wallaby in Australia.
