According to the Singapore Scout Association’s (SSA) website, “Scouting is a movement of self-education for young people.” In Concord Primary School, the CCA aims to “provide a group environment which is intellectually stimulating, physically vital and directed towards satisfying the child’s basic need to face and overcome challenges” (SSA, 2013).
Activities conducted during the CCA are developed to inject, not only a sense of fun and enthusiasm but also as a way to impress good values and habits that the school would like its students to possess. Some of these activities include camping, outdoor cooking, volunteering and completing the requirements of the various proficiency badges.
We had our annual Combined Uniform Group Camp at the Jurong Bird Park from 4 to 5 September 2017. The boys were very excited to have a sleepover at the bird park. They had a chance to visit the restricted areas and had a few close-up encounters with birds, such as the colourful lory and the featherless baby macaw. We are definitely looking forward to a more exciting camping experience in 2018!
We completed several proficiency badges in 2017 such as the Astronomy, Young Mariner and Quadcopter Awareness and Drone Flying workshop. We hope to collect more badges in 2018!
