Total Defence Day
This year’s Total Defence Day coincides with the 75th anniversary of the fall of Singapore to the Japanese during World War II in 1942. Singapore has remained safe and peaceful over the past 51 years because of the efforts of all Singaporeans. This is essentially Total Defence. Total Defence remains relevant because the threats faced today require all Singaporeans to step up and play their part.
In line with our school's focus of the year "We ourselves can defend our land", we launched SGSecure during the TDD Week. Pupils were introduced to the three core pillars of SGSecure, that is, "Stay Alert", "Stay United" and "Stay Strong". Our youths are encouraged to put Total Defence into action in their daily lives by reaching out to one another, forging new relationships and strengthening existing ones to keep Singapore strong and resilient. Let us remember that our greatest strength lies in the unity and resilience of our people.
Together, We Keep Singapore Strong.
