CCA Events and Achievements
The St. Patrick’s School National Police Cadet Corps (NPCC) Unit has attained the prestigious Gold Award since 2018 - a testament to the cadets’ determination and commitment to serve the Unit. In the four years that they serve as a member of the corps, cadets get to experience a wide range of activities that allow them to grow as leaders. These are some key highlights for the cadets.
SPF-NPCC Pinnacle Awards
The SPF-NPCC Badge is the pinnacle award that all cadets strive to attain. The badge is only awarded to a handful of outstanding cadets in the nation. Over the years, the St. Patrick’s School NPCC Unit has groomed many cadets into excellent leaders who serve with pride and dedication. For their commitment and service to the corps, many students have attained this award.
Adventure & Survival Training Camp @ Camp Resilience, Pulau Ubin
One of the key highlights of the cadets’ journey is the Adventure & Survival Training Camp at Camp Resilience, Pulau Ubin in Secondary 2 and 3 respectively. In the camp, cadets get to try their hand at outdoor cooking, both low and high elements and land expeditions. Camp Resilience also boasts the highest flying fox in Singapore! The camp is jointly organised with other schools in the area and the cadets always walk away with friendships and memories that last.
Inter-Unit Drills & Camp Craft Competition
HQ NPCC rotates between organising the Inter-Unit Drills Competition and Inter-Unit Camp Craft Competition each year. Selected cadets who demonstrate excellence in these are given the opportunity to represent the Unit in this coveted competition. The cadets always take pride in their trainings and give their best in the competitions.
Police Knowledge & Crime Scene Investigation
In their time in the Unit, cadets will attend several courses that will introduce them to the functions and duties of police officers. In Secondary 1, students will learn about how policemen handle emergency cases and in Secondary 2, they will learn about the laws that govern Singapore and how the SPF upholds these laws. In their time in the corps, cadets will also get to try their hand at Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) – a form of forensic science which supports police investigations. They also experience finger-print dusting, analysing blood splatter patterns and gathering facts to solve a crime. It is also in this year that the cadets get to work on a community project with the local police force as Police Youth Ambassadors.
.22 Revolver Shoot
Another key highlight for the cadets is the .22 Revolver Shoot. In Secondary 2, cadets will attend basic weapon handling training and their practice shoot. In Secondary 3, they will be assessed in an actual shoot and cadets who score well will be awarded with the Marksman Badge.
