Noraini Bte Aman

When Noraini Bte Aman was a secondary three student of Xinmin Secondary School, she participated together with another team member in the Tan Kah Kee Young Inventors’ Award (TKKYIA) on 2 March 2004 and competed amongst the top schools to showcase their inventions as young enthusiastic innovators. Her team was awarded the Commendation Award in the prestigious TKKYIA - Defence Science Award 2004 by the Defence Science & Technology Agency (DSTA) for their project “Hot-Oxy-Baggy”. The team competed against adult teams as there is no pupils category. She and her teammate also won cash reward of S$1000.

As an outstanding student, Noraini has also been able to excel in various non-academic areas. Aside from having a strong academic record and being a Staff Sergeant in the National Police Cadet Corps (NPCC) when she was in secondary four, she was actively participating in ‘From The Young Director’s Chair – Youth In Our Community’, a bold initiative organised by Xinmin Secondary School and Channel NewsAsia, for a Mother Tongue video-clip making project to promote the use of language through television. Her team was producing a video-clip: 'Arts Alive!' (Malay), traces the lives of buskers and how they make a living along the streets of Singapore, was telecasted on 22~29 August 2005 among all the finalists.
