Commemoration of Total Defence Day 2018
Our school commemorated Total Defence Week from 12th to 15th February 2018. This year the theme for Total Defence is ‘Together We Are Strong’. Our pupils participated in various experiential activities throughout the week.
We kick-started the commemoration of Total Defence Day (TDD) with a pre-assembly programme on 12th February which featured our Total Defence Superheroes from 3 Integrity representing the 5 pillars of Total Defence; Military Defence, Civil Defence, Economic Defence, Social Defence and Psychological Defence.
One of the main highlights was the SG Secure Panel Exhibition Booth held on 13th February. Community Policing Officers from the Singapore Police Force CCK NPC showcased various police equipment such as the Riot Shield, Bullet Resistant Vest & Helmet. Pupils were briefed on the importance of SG Secure which is to always ‘Stay Alert, Stay United & Stay Strong’.
Apart from that, there was a recess activity which took place on 14th February. Our Parent Support Group helped out in managing the Total Defence Photo Booth and the Total Defence Matching Games. To reinforce the importance of Civil Defence, our Cub Scouts successfully demonstrated First Aid Skills to our pupils.
On 15th February, pupils viewed a video message from Minister of Defence, Dr Ng Eng Hen followed by classroom-based lessons. Total Defence Day not only marks Singapore's fall to the Japanese in 1942 but serves to remind our pupils that Singapore is defensible and is worth defending, thus we ourselves must defend Singapore.
