Our Principal’s First Year in Nanyang Polytechnic

On 1 July 2015, we had our new Principal and CEO, Ms Jeanne Liew, take the helm at NYP. Time flies, and a year has since gone by. We decided to ask Ms Liew to share with us her most remarkable moments at NYP in this past year. Today, we are thrilled to present some of her thoughts on events, facilities, and achievements that would make you feel proud to be an NYPian.

Connecting Over a Movie


On the night of 8 July 2016, 125 NYP SIT students and alumni, and current members of the Singapore Computer Society (SCS) Student Chapter, turned up for Movie Fiesta Night at Golden Village, Suntec City to catch the movie Central Intelligence. The event was organised by the NYP SIT Club and the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD).

The Write Stuff was invited to cover the event, and together with my co-writer, Ritz Yeo, we had a great time. It was a great opportunity for the SCS Student Chapter and NYP SIT alumni to get to know each other better.

Aspiring Pro-Gamer Juggles Studies and Ambition

Khairull’s gaming setup at home
Hardworking, motivated, ambitious.

These are three words I would use to describe second-year Diploma in Mass Media Management student, Khairull Hafidz – an aspiring pro-gamer.

The 21-year-old’s ambitions started way back to when he got his first game – “Beyblade” on the PlayStation 1 (PS1).

Ready to Cook Up a Storm

Dominic Lee
Dominic Lee and Sabrina Chong will be facing a tough challenge. From 7 to 9 July, they will be competing in the finals of WorldSkills Singapore, a nation-wide skills competition for Singaporean youth who excel in technical skills. The two Diploma in Food & Beverage Business students will be amongst the pioneer team of NYP students to compete in the Cooking category - a new skill area for NYP. Unlike students participating in categories like Health & Social Care and CNC Milling, Dominic and Sabrina have no predecessors to learn from. However, this disadvantage has not fazed them, and they are determined to prove their passion and prowess in culinary arts.
