Established in 1968, the AHS NCC (LAND) unit is one of the premier CCAs in Anglican High School, renowned for its many outstanding achievements and awards since its founding. We pride ourselves as one of the elite units in NCC and we constantly strive hard to scale new heights. We have achieved the Gold Unit Award for 19 consecutive years (1996-2016); in the Best Unit Competition 2007, we were awarded the Overall Second Best Unit Award.

We believe in constantly blending tough physical training with character building to nurture future leaders and to mould all-round cadets, be it physically, mentally or academically. Our cadets also hone their leadership skills through the planning and execution of various NCC activities.
2016 was a fruitful year for the AHS NCC unit. We won the prestigious Gold Award in the Best Unit competition for the 19th consecutive year. We also clinched the 2nd Best Unit Award for the Best Unit Competition (East District, Land). 2014 also marked the beginning of a new Platoon Bravo Camp format for the Secondary 2 cadets; instead of the usual 3-day/2-night leadership camp in school at the end of the year, it was replaced by a Survival Adventure Camp, where the cadets learnt invaluable survival skills and also underwent an Orienteering test in Pulau Ubin.
Staff Sergeant Koh Jin Jie and Third Sergeant Xavier Goh Xuan Chen also had the rare opportunity to attend the Mount Ophir Adventure Training from 2nd to 4th of June. After various physical training sessions designed to mentally and physically prepare them for the actual climb, they went on the expedition and successfully scaled the mountain of 1276 metres—the highest peak of Johor. During the climb, they learnt to build effective teamwork skills as well as persevered through all challenges. They also had the opportunity to interact with cadets from other schools and forged new, strong bonds with each other in the process.
During the National Day Parade 2016, AHS NCC participated in the Marching Contingent, where our Secondary 2 and 3 cadets demonstrated their synchronised ceremonial drills and put up an impressive performance alongside the rest of the contingent. AHS NCC’s Unit Sergeant Major, Chong Wei Jie, also served as the Parade Commander for the year’s parade.
