Sec 1NT and 2NT Experiential Learning Trip to Army Museum
In our efforts to enhance the learning experience of Normal Technical (NT) students, the NT sub-committee organised an Experiential Learning Trip for the Sec 1 and 2 NT students to the Army Museum on 23 February 2012. The objective of this trip was to learn how SAF contributes to Total Defence.

During the trip, the students were given a good introduction to the “Army Experience.” They were engaged in various activities which included a hands-on session on army equipment such as the SAR 21 rifle, during a shooting simulation. Students also learnt the art of camouflaging their faces with green and black paint. Students participated in a mini Standard Obstacle Course (SOC), and were treated to a tour of the awe-inspiring SAFTI Military Institute (SAFTI MI). After that, they experienced a thrilling 4D Show which depicted a war time scenario. Everyone enjoyed themselves, while learning more about Total Defence. There were even a few students who expressed interest in signing on with the Army!
