Nanyang Junior College (NYJC) (simplified Chinese: 南洋初级学院; traditional Chinese: 南洋初級學院; pinyin: Nányáng chūjí xuéyuàn; Wade–Giles: Nan2yang2 Ch`u1chi2 Hsüeh2yüan4) is a junior college in Singapore, offering two-year pre-university courses leading up to the GCE Advanced Level examinations.[1]

In recent years, Nanyang Junior College has witnessed tremendous rise in its admission standards, placing the institution as one of the top five junior colleges in Singapore based on entry points. As the top non-IP junior college since 2016, Nanyang Junior College has proved its consistent results in the GCE Advanced Level national examination, faring well above national average for many subjects.[2][3] For the past decade, the college has nurtured six Public Service Commission (PSC) Scholarship holders, a notable record among the nation's established institutions.[4][5][6][7][8]

History[edit]

Foundation years[edit]

Nanyang Junior College was founded in 1977 as Lorong Chuan Junior College. It was among the first government-aided junior colleges to be established in Singapore.[4] The building committee led by Mr Goh Tjoei Kok was formed in 1972.[9] Construction of the college begun in 1976 with funding and support from the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCCI), which concurrently oversees the establishment of Hwa Chong Junior College, Singapore's second junior college and first government-aided junior college.[9]

The college was renamed as Nanyang Junior College in December 1977. The name "Nanyang" refers to the "Southern Seas" in Mandarin Chinese. The term was widely used by the mainland Chinese people to refer to the region encompassed by Singapore, Malaysia and the Southeast Asian region. The name is a reflection of the origins of Singapore having been built by immigrants predominantly from China, India, Malaysia, as well as other parts of the world.[10]

The first cohort of about six hundred Arts and Science students, was enrolled in January 1978. Academic lessons were temporarily conducted at the former Westlake Secondary School campus.[4] Construction of the major buildings and facilities at the permanent site along Serangoon Avenue 3 was completed in November 1978, and started administrative and academic operations the following month.[4] Commerce stream and computer science was introduced into the college in 1979 and 1981 respectively.[9] In 1981, Nanyang Junior College organised the 11th Pre-university Seminar in conjunction with the Ministry of Education.[11][12]

As the campus of Nanyang Junior College was built on a small ridge, fog often covered part of the college in the 1980s and 1990s. Thus, the College was well known affectionately as "白云岗" (Chinese: Literal meaning "White Cloud Ridge"). This is also the inspiration for the brand-name of the college's Chinese Cultural Society's annual drama production, "我们的白云岗" (Chinese: Literal meaning "Our White Cloud Ridge").[13]

Transformation into a modern institution[edit]

On 21 May 1995, the College Resource Centre was opened. The three-storey building housed the Resource Library, the Computer Centre, the AVA Room and seminar rooms.[4] In 1997, Nanyang Junior College was selected to be the second college in Singapore to offer the Art Elective Programme (AEP). From 15 January 1999, Nanyang Junior College joined Hwa Chong Junior College and Temasek Junior College as the third pre-university centre in Singapore to offer the Chinese Language Elective Programme (C-LEP).[14] This came as a recognition of the efforts made by the college in maintaining its Chinese heritage and culture since its founding.[15]

Nanyang Junior College was selected by Ministry of Education in 2000 for an on-site re-development of its campus under the PRIME project. in which the Ministry of Education bored 95 per cent of the re-development costs.[4] The three-phrase re-development work included construction of a new main building, which feature new science and computer laboratories, a new library, and four new lecture theatres. Lessons and administrative operations continued in the old building and subsequently in temporary tutorial rooms and offices as the works were carried out between 2001 and 2004.[16] The reconstruction works were briefly halted in 2003 due to the bankruptcy of the main contractor, which also affected a number of residential developments in Marine Terrace.[17] The college moved into the newly re-developed campus building in January 2004, and officially declared the completion of the redevelopment works in June 2005.[18][19] A stone feature, on which wrote "饮水思源" was donated by Mdm Ho Won Ho on her retirement as the principal of Nanyang Junior College in 2005.[20]

In 2006, the school's executive committee proposed a change to the school's name as: "Chung Cheng Junior College", to signify the affiliation of Nanyang Junior College with Chung Cheng High (Main) and Chung Cheng High (Yishun). This proposition is overwhelmingly rejected by the alumni and staff, as well as prominent academics, stating of the strong college heritage, as well as the political sensitivity of the name "Chung Cheng (中正)".[21] In an academic article featured in Lianhe Zaobao in 2002, it was stated that the adoption of the name "Nanyang" in 1978 was resulted of the strong objection by the society, due to the strong historical association of tha name "Chung Cheng" to Kuomintang's founding leader Chiang Kai-shek, even with the clarifications made in a historical statement in 1940.[21] A sign was also erected beside the quadrangle, engraving the dedications "Once an NYJCian, Always an NYJCian", as an affirmation to the school identity.[22]

Accreditation of niche[edit]

In 2009, Nanyang Junior College became the first institution to offer direct admission to Peking University to all junior college students in Singapore. The direct admission comprises a preliminary interview conducted by the college, as well as interview by the university's admission department in Singapore. The admission route simplified the overseas application process into the renowned Chinese university from Singapore, allowing prospective Singapore junior college students to participate in the university's annual international students admission exercise without travelling abroad.[23]

In 2013, Nanyang Junior College hosted the Pre-University Seminar for the second time with a refreshed format that brought student ownership and thought leadership to the forefront.[4] This was a departure from the traditional format where students prepared presentations in teams from their individual institutions.[24] In 2014, Nanyang Junior College became one of the first junior colleges to offer Translation for the Singapore-Cambridge GCE Advanced Level examination to students with interest to develop proficiency in translation. This forms part of the prospectus by the Ministry of Education to boost bilingualism in tertiary education.[25]

School identity and culture[edit]

Nanyang Junior College has a very strong cultural heritage that is built on its vibrant student population since 1978. It has a strong cultural contribution to the development of Singapore. Many of the graduates pursued careers in education, public service, and the language arts scene. The college had a rich history of language and humanities related programmes and events that were initiated and contributed by the student body, such as various poetry and literary arts publications, drama productions, as well as national competitions that promoted language and cultural intelligence by reaching out to the students nationwide and the public.[28]

The college was also well known for its closed kilted ties and homely culture, being described as "a homely college with a kampung feel" in a local article in 1992.[29]

Insignia and motto[edit]

Nanyang Junior College's insignia is a red shield incorporating a blue base with four yellow crescents, which bears a head of a white lion. The white lion over the red background symbolises the courage and confidence to strive for excellence in the face of challenge, as portrayed by the waves in blue, which physically represents the literal meaning of the name "Nanyang (Southern Ocean) ".[30][10] The white lion also portrays the quality to challenge convention as a leader, as a symbol of distinction.[31] The colour of red is symbolic of the brotherhood the multi-cultural society as well as the developmental aspect of the nation, as portrayed by the four crescents.[10]

The college motto, "Together We Build", highlighted the importance of each individual as a building block of a community, as well as the importance of a unified strength and resilience.[32][33]

Anthem and Pledge[edit]

Nanyang Junior College's anthem was originally composed in Mandarin Chinese with complementary English verses and was first performed in 1978. The full anthem consists of three verses, emphasizing the college ethos of strength through unity. It incorporates the defining symbols of the college, namely the palm trees and the original fountain of the old building. The symbolic verse "a rising fountain" is also a reflection of the auspicious name of the estate, Lorong Chuan, which meant fountain of wealth and prosperity.[34] Presently, the English version of the anthem is sung during assemblies and college functions, with the omission of the third verse.[35]

The college pledge was introduced in 2007 as part of the college's 30th anniversary. It serves as a reminder for all NYJCians to work together and uphold the heritage and values of the college; to be a compassionate and resilient individual; and to be a resourceful, confident and proactive leader of the community.[35]

Uniform[edit]

Male students wear plain beige-coloured shirts with beige pants. Female students wear beige-coloured blouses, beige skirts, and occasionally, at their discretion, shorts underneath the skirts. The former uniform, which was of a deeper brown, was completely phased out in 2008. The collar pin, which bears the college insignia, is worn on the left collar of the shirt. Dark brown blazers and school ties are worn on special occasions. The attire for PE is a college T-shirt with blue and white shoulder stripes and black shorts which bear the school initials.[36]

In 2012, two dress-down days were introduced (Wednesdays and Fridays). This was accompanied by the introduction of the college polo T-shirts. Apart from the class, CCA T-shirts, students could wear the college polo T-shirts and school event T-shirts as part of the official college uniform. The formerly popular college house T-shirts were later ruled out to boost college cohesiveness and prevent segregation. In 2013, the number of dress-down days was increased to 4 (except for Wednesdays)[37][38]

Student Welfare[edit]

Nanyang Junior College is one of the few colleges in Singapore not allocating an 'S' to Science classes and 'A' to Arts classes since the new curriculum was introduced in 2006, opting instead to avoid such labels to foster a greater sense of college spirit. It is also one of the few junior colleges in Singapore that do not hold morning assemblies at the conventional 7.30 am or 7.40 am. Assemblies are held at 8.30 am on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays for first year students, and on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays for second-year students. Students will report to school by 8.25 am on these days. On the remaining days, there are no assembly and students may report at 8.50 am.[39]

Admission and Affiliation[edit]

Nanyang Junior College admits students annually through the Joint Admission Exercise (JAE), as well as through Direct School Admission (DSA).[40][41] The College also admits international students through a qualifying test, as well as international scholarship holders applied through the Ministry of Education.[42]

Nanyang Junior College is affiliated with Chung Cheng High School (Main) and Chung Cheng High School (Yishun), which share the same School Management Committee. Students from both affiliated institutions are entitled to two additional point reduction to their L1R5 raw scores for their GCE Ordinary Level examination results when applying for admission into NYJC (a maximum of 4 reduction points to L1R5 score is allowed for JC Joint Admission Exercise, with the exception for appeals through Language Elective Programmes, which allows up to a maximum of 6 reduction points).[1] In the 1980s to 2000s, Nanyang Junior College shared its leadership and immersion programmes with its two affiliated high schools. Plans were initially drafted for the relocation of Chung Cheng High School (Branch) to relocated adjacent to Nanyang Junior College from River Valley in 2001. The plan was shaved due to government objection and the school was eventually relocated to Yishun in 2003.[43]

Campus[edit]

Nanyang Junior College's campus was built on a hilly ridge off Lorong Chuan, and underwent a redevelopment in the 2000s to keep up with the changes to the academic and non-academic curriculum.[44]

The campus is designed to incorporate natural ventilation and lighting, as well as seamless accessibility for the disabled. The main block is characterised by its iconic circular foyer which features the college fountain and houses three lecture theatres beneath.[44] The staff room, library and computer laboratories are built around the foyer.

As a student-centered junior college, NYJC is quoted locally as the most flexible college in terms of its availability of subject combinations, and allowing deserving students to undertake elective programmes even without relevant backgrounds.[47][48] The college consistently performed well above national standards for the GCE A Level examination since the 1980s. The college was consistently ranked as the top performing mid-tier junior colleges and the seventh in national ranking throughout the 1990s.[29] In the 2000s, Nanyang Junior College has ascended to one of the tier 1 JCs in Singapore, being one of the top 5 JCs based on cut-off-points. It's A Level results are comparable to competitive JCs in the top tier.

In recent years, the college has come into prominence for its steady rise to be among colleges with the most competitive academic achievements, faring well above the national average for most of the subjects at the annual GCE A Level examination. This was also reflected by the growing selectivity and increasingly stringent entry requirements for applicants year-on-year.[49][50]
