Raffles Institution

National Cadet Corps



  •  
    The Raffles Institution National Cadet Corps (RI NCC) is the first NCC Unit in Singapore founded back in May 1901. The mission is to develop resourceful, responsible, resilient, loyal leaders and team players through fun and challenging military-related activities.

    From Year 1 to Year 4, cadets are taught basic military knowledge like map reading, weapons handling (including live firing using SAR21 rifles) and individual field crafts like tactical movement and cover and concealment. Cadets will also get to visit SAF Units to see how SAF soldiers are trained.

    From Year 3 onwards, there will be opportunities for interested cadets to sign up for International Cadet Exchange Programmes to visit countries like Australia, Britain, India, New Zealand and the United States of America.

    In Year 5 and Year 6, cadets can choose to continue as Cadet Lieutenants. Many of the Cadet Lieutenants became SAF Officers when they served their National Service.

    Some of the Annual Competitions RI NCC participates include Shooting Competition, Challenge Quest, Street Soccer, Speedball, Orienteering and National Education Gaming Championship. Cadets of the Month awards are also given out to reward cadets with good attitude.

    During the school terms, RI NCC conducts training on Mondays and Wednesdays (3:45pm to 6:00pm on both days). Training typically may consists of a physical training session, a short footdrill session and a wide range of recreational activities such as war games, soccer, basketball, etc.

    Occasionally, many interesting activities are organised for the cadets. These include Camps, Bowling, Amazing Race, Dragon Boating, Kayaking, Hiking, and even visits to tourist attractions like the Singapore Flyer and Universal Studios Singapore.
