Raphael Souw Han Jie, an alumni of the Diploma in Biomedical Science (class of 2019) was honoured this prestigious award for being an outstanding full-time National Servicemen who demonstrated professionalism, leadership and exemplary conduct during their National Service (NS). His thoughts on winning this award were that “as a platoon medic, my primary role is to provide care to wounded soldiers under any conditions. To be able to think on your feet and provide the necessary care under stressful situations, while disseminating proper information to others is crucial. In my time as a student in ASC, I was able to develop these skills through different opportunities provided, such as from the ‘Leadership: Essential Attributes & Practice’ modules, and being a student leader in the Biomedical Outreach To Society (BOTS) Interest Group“.
Fifteen students from the Diploma in Veterinary Technology were each awarded a $3,000 scholarship that is pledged by philanthropist Mr Peter Lim to the National Parks Board (NParks). This is in support of helping deserving youths to pursue their interest in the landscaping, horticulture, ecology, veterinary and animal science sectors. This also provides the recipients the opportunity to build up their practical and relevant experience through outreach programmes and internships organised by NParks.
