Open to all youths aged 16 to 18 years, the NYP Primers Programme focuses on the dual themes of "service and leadership". Under the umbrella of The Boys' Brigade, NYP Primers volunteer as motivators at the National Day Parade previews and parades each year. This is a combined effort with other polytechnics and ITE. The energy and warmth of members always enhances the celebratory atmosphere for the audience.
Besides focusing on developing each individual to his or her fullest potential, NYP Primers also believe in giving back to society. The Boys’ Brigade Share-a-Gift, an annual nation-wide initiative which aims to bring cheer to the less fortunate during the Christmas season, is one such activity. The NYP Primers set up booths and visit nearby housing estates to appeal for food donations.
At NYP Primers, our students practise values like caring, sharing and waiting – otherwise known as ‘CASHAWA’. Members treat one another like a family, thereby forming lasting, lifelong friendships.
