Raffles Lighthouse Tour on 6 Nov 2013

Good Day Cadets,

There will be a visit to a Raffles Lighthouse organised by MPA on 6 November 2013 from 12.30pm to 6.00pm.

HQ NCC has opened up this visit to 4 cadet leaders from our unit. If you are interested, please get back to me by Wednesday, 23 October 2013, by sending me an email.

You will have to fill up the Safety Brief Form and submit the hardcopy to me by Thursday, 24 October 2013.

This Raffles Lighthouse tour is not open to public and is only accessible through invitation and this is the second time MPA has organised this visit for NCC cadets. 


This is indeed a "once in a lifetime" opportunity for you to visit Raffles Lighthouse. Another interesting fact is the island, which houses the Raffles Lighthouse, has the distinction of being the southernmost island of Singapore and hence, the southernmost point in Singapore as well.

I do hope you will sign up for the Raffles Lighthouse visit.

Thanks.

Regards,
Sir Philip

We would like to invite you to join us in cheering our team on at the finals if you are able to join us.

For those interested, the details are as follows:
