National Education

As part of a holistic education, NE develops national cohesion, cultivates the instinct for survival and instils in our students, confidence in our nation’s future. It also cultivates a sense of belonging to Singapore. NSS celebrates four NE events annually. 

Total Defence Day

The Total Defence (TD) programme in NSS uses experiential learning approach to develop competent citizenship in our students. Through learning journeys, our students will understand Singapore’s constraints in the building years of a young nation and take pride in Singapore’s achievements. The learning journeys are intentionally designed to progressively cover the five pillars of TD across different cohorts of students. Upon completion of their secondary education in NSS, our students would have gained an understanding of TD as a framework for all-round responses to threats and challenges.

International Friendship Day

At NSS, the commemoration of International Friendship Day (IFD) provides opportunities for students to develop a global outlook, thereby enabling them to relate well with people of different cultures. Our Northstars will also gain a deeper appreciation of regional cooperation between Singapore and neighbouring countries and learn the value of maintaining good relations with our regional neighbours.

Racial Harmony Day

This year, the theme for Racial Harmony Day is “Diversity Our Strength”. Through customised class-based CCE lessons, our Northstars gained a deeper understanding of the customs and traditions of different races and religions. They also learnt how to embrace diversity, and contribute towards building an inclusive society. A popular highlight of our school’s celebration was Cultural Bites where a variety of local delights were sold in our school canteen. A special school assembly programme was also organised to celebrate Racial Harmony Day. Through a theatrical drama, our Northstars reframed their personal concept of “race” and learnt the importance of making choices that promote inter-cultural relationships.

Northland celebrates National Day with the community!

On 5 August 2018, Northland’s National Cadet Corps (NCC) Land, National Cadet Corps (NCC) Air and National Police Cadet Corps (NPCC) participated in the Nee Soon East National Day Carnival to celebrate Singapore’s 53rd birthday with the community. Our cadets were proud to be part of the contingent for the carnival. For this community service, NSS was presented a Certificate of Appreciation by Mr Louis Ng, Member of Parliament & Advisor to Nee Soon GRC.

Northland celebrates National Day

On 8 August 2018, our school celebrated National Day. It was a wet morning but our Uniformed Group cadets demonstrated resilience and continued with the Parade Observance Ceremony. They have put in a lot of time and effort to organise the parade, which lent the celebration ceremonial splendour, and gave it much significance. 

After the parade, our students proceeded to have their National Day-themed class party. The celebration culminated with a finale concert. Our students cheered loudly to welcome the SG icons walking down the runway. The SG icons represented the unique culture and heritage of Singapore. Our Northstars also participated enthusiastically in the gameshow to demonstrate their understanding of Singapore’s identity. The celebration ended on a high with the singing of the National Anthem by our Northland Tenors and the recitation of the National Pledge with gusto.
