The Home Team Show & Festival will be taking place on 3 May to 7 May, and in the midst of all the preparations, we speak to some of the key personnel who played a part in making the Home Team Show & Festival possible.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner (DAC) (NS) Mohammed Azhar Bin Yusof is a Senior Lecturer at the National Institute of Education (NIE). This year, he has the honour of being the Parade Commander of the Home Team Parade that is part of the Home Team Show and Festival.

“I’m really privileged and honoured to have been invited to become the parade commander. This year is very significant because it is the 20th anniversary of the Home Team and also the 50th anniversary of National Service (NS), so it has a lot of meaning and significance for me as an NS man. Therefore, to be part of the Show as a parade commander makes me feel really honoured,” he said.

As he was an Officer-in-Charge during his NS days, he is no stranger to taking charge and commanding an entire parade.

“In NS, I commanded a group of over 130 officers, so that certainly helps me hone my skills and ability in terms of leadership and bringing a group of strangers to work together for a common mission. That has been a very powerful and meaningful lesson for me,” he said.

“I had a very meaningful journey as a Full-time National Serviceman and a NS man. I’ve been given lots of opportunities to learn and to experience, and it has helped me to become who I am today,” he added.

Being in NS has also helped him in his civilian life as a lecturer, as he is in the department of Physical Education and Sports Science.

”I’ve used my NS experience in my line of work in terms of building groups and leading groups on different occasions and activities. I’m used to giving instructions to my students, so I guess it’s something that I’m familiar with,” he said.

His family members are also looking forward seeing him in action at the parade segment of the festival.

“My kids are looking forward to watching the show, especially my son, who is excited to see me as the parade commander. They’re certainly excited and looking forward to the event,” he said.

You can catch the Home Team Show & Festival at the Sports Hub from 3 May to 7 May.
