RE: NPGC3 Postponement
In lieu of the recent changes to school protocols due to the CoVid19, NPGC3 2020 will be postponed to 2021. The Organising Committee (OC) had deliberated long and hard on the best alternative way to conduct the event but saw no other way to circumvent this. The OC foresee difficulties in meeting up with students for training, meetings etc. With masks on it would be difficult to communicate effectively. Meetings via video conference applications too will be challenging based from our own experiences during Full Home Based Learning.
As such, the committee regretfully has taken the decision as mentioned in the above to postpone the event.
To facilitate NPGC3 2021, we will keep to the theme, number of competitions and or any other requirement as to what was originally stipulated prior to FHBL. Schools and teams that have sent in their write ups or proposals will have their submissions automatically brought forward to 2021. Such teams need not submit their proposals again.
We apologise for any inconvenience and hope the above measures would help to ease to the challenges faced by schools and teams in preparation for NPGC3.
