Northland Celebrates Chinese Lunar New Year
Northland celebrated Chinese Lunar New Year on 11 February, which was the eve of the Lunar New Year. This year, the theme for the New Year celebrations is ‘One Beat One Spirit’. This is to remind students the solidarity of the Northland Family and the importance of being united. The celebrations started with entertaining performances by the Guzheng Ensemble, Wushu and MCAC. The students then started making their own cup drums and practised the ‘One Beat One Spirit’ drumming experience. The classes were visited by a special guest – the ‘God of Fortune’ who took pains to go to every class to shower them blessings and wishing everyone academic success!
Northland Commemorates Total Defence Day
Northland commemorated Total Defence Day on 9 February. Our theme this year is “Together, We Keep Singapore Strong”. The school had arranged a whole suite of experiential learning programmes to remind Northstars that Singapore is worth defending, and we ourselves must defend Singapore. Our Northstars learnt about food rationing and eating simply during difficult times. Our Secondary 1s went through CPR training and our Secondary 2s went to Singapore Discovery Centre to learn more about Military Defence. Our Secondary 3s and Secondary 4s embarked on Virtual Learning journeys and our Secondary 5s learned how to prevent fake news.

Welcome back to school - Start Right 2021
Northland Secondary School welcomed our Northstars back to school and began our Start Right Programme. During these 2 days, Northstars were reminded of the importance of having a sense of gratitude, having a positive mindset and also learning how to take care of their social, emotional, physical, academic and spiritual (SEPAS) wellness. Northstars also had a good time reconnecting with their form teachers and their friends. Our new Secondary 1 Northstars also had the opportunity to know new friends and teachers. The year definitely promises to be an exciting one for our Northstars!
A very special Graduation Day

Northland celebrates National Day and Speech & Prize-Giving Day
This year, National Day had to be modified, not just because we could not gather in large numbers, but also because we decided that it would be symbolic to also celebrate the achievements of our students as we commemorate 55 years of our nation’s independence. Due to its unique format, there was a lot of preparation that went into Friday’s Celebrations and the entire atmosphere of the celebrations did not disappoint. We celebrated our Northstars’ successes and also celebrated our nation’s continuous efforts towards nation building and ended the day with a spine-tingling ‘Home’.This year, National Day had to be modified, not just because we could not gather in large numbers, but also because we decided that it would be symbolic to also celebrate the achievements of our students as we commemorate 55 years of our nation’s independence.
