LKY-ONC Award1.png2016 Lee Kuan Yew Award For Outstanding Normal Course Students (LKY-ONC Award)

The LKY-ONC Award is given at the end of secondary education to recognise well-rounded students from the normal course who have excelled in both academic and non-academic spheres, and who exemplify the qualities articulated in our desired outcomes of education. We are very proud of our student, Tan Wei Jie (408), who has received this prestigious national award. Having performed exceedingly well in the 2015 GCE N(T)-Level Examination, Wei Jie returned to XMS to pursue the 4N(A) course in 2016. Wei Jie is truly exemplary in his attitude towards learning and his mindset for excellence.
