National Junior College’s first yearbook, Volume 1 & Volume 2

National Junior College (NJC) was opened in 1969 as Singapore’s first junior college. It was the first specialised government school to be established for the nation’s top pre-university students. Although classes commenced in January 1969, its official opening was held more than a year later on 14 May 1970. JC is recognised as one of the top junior colleges in Singapore and has produced numerous leaders, including current Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, current Minister for Defence Ng Eng Hen. This set of artefacts was part of the selection in the time capsule buried in 1990 by then DPM Ong Teng Cheong to celebrate Singapore’s 50th anniversary of independence in 2015.
