NVSJB is a vibrant and dynamic CCA. Wound bandaging and life-saving skills aside, cadets will also be given the opportunities to experience kayaking, hospital attachment, camping, archery and many more. The exciting training programmes aim to provide holistic developments for our cadets who are  looking  out  to  develop  their  leadership  and  gain  skills  that  are  essential  to  manage  new situations.

Award of Kindness Badge (Gold) 2015
The Kindness Badge is a result of the collaboration between the Singapore Kindness Movement (SKM) and St John Brigade.  The Kindness Badge aims to achieve the following: 
  • To reach out to the uniformed groups in Singapore 
  • To encourage everyone to start, show and share kindness 
  • To inspire graciousness one kind act at a time 
  • To create a gracious society 

The badge programme started in March 2015 with the selected group of cadets working to achieve the Gold Level of the programme in line with the Kindness Day Awards Ceremony, scheduled to be held in November 2015. The rest of the schools will embark on the Bronze level as a start from 2016 onwards.

In April 2015, the cadets came together as a team to plan and organise their own unique kindness campaign titled “Kindness Block” where neighbours were encouraged to write notes of appreciation and encouragement to one another.  

The project was targeted at residents in an estate in Rivervale to improve relationship between neighbours. The idea was sparked off as the cadets realised that there is a lack of ties among neighbours living under the same roof. 

The cadets divided the workload among themselves to ease the planning. Besides the project manager and treasurer, every other member was a leader of a department. There are a total of five different departments – publicity, logistics, design, food and beverages and games. 

Two carnivals were held to facilitate the process to spread awareness and kindness to the residents. The first carnival was the opening ceremony that was held in July 2015 to launch the kindness board at the common noticeboard in the estate and initiate the note writing process.We look forward to seeing more outgoing and socially active Secondary One students to join us this year who will continue leading NVSJB to greater heights.
