Gardens by the Bay

Our cubs and parent volunteers took time out to visit the latest pride of Singapore - the Gardens by the Bay. This super garden is home to over a quarter of a million rare plants. The Flower Dome replicates the cool-dry climate of Mediterranean and the Cloud Forest Conservatory replicates the cool-moist climate found in Tropical Mountains.
Enjoying the beautiful flowers in the cool-dry Flower Dome
The "Super Trees" host unique and exotic ferns, vines and orchids

Through a video, our cubs were reminded of the fragility of our Mother Earth. 
What will our Earth be like in the year 2100?  If we don't take care of it, will it become like this?
or like this?

Each of us has a part to play in ensuring that the Earth will still be a liveable place for our children and future generations. 

Save our planet and we save ourselves.

Sixer Training Camp 2012

11 of our cubs had an exhilarating time during their Sixer Training Course at Sarimbun Scout camp, held from 26 to 28 May.  They had the wonderful opportunity to interact with more than 80 cubs from 10 schools belonging to the East Area Scouts.

The course aimed to inculcate values, leadership skills and aspire Cub Scouts to excel in their capacity as Sixers. It is also a pre-requisite for the Akela Award, the highest award for Cub Scout section.

Our cubs had much to learn - knots, basic first aid, orienteering, and  building a Basha shelter.

They also had much fun engaging in various activities with their new found friends.

Mother I Love You !

Mother's Day was approaching and our cubs wanted to show their appreciation to their mothers.  
How about making some beautiful cards to thank them?

What else should I say?
Hmm, another pretty design next?

She will surely love my card :)
And we are sure all the mothers loved their presents !

A Walk with Nature

It had been pouring the past week, and we were wondering if our hike to Labrador nature Reserve had to be postponed.  The weather finally cleared on Saturday morning, in time for our hike to Labrador Park:).  Hurray! 

Labrador Nature Reserve has a rich variety of flora and fauna. Our cubs were thrilled to discover squirrels scampering up trees, monitor lizards sliding into the mangroves, mudskippers barely visible on the shore and beautiful birds nesting in the trees.

Besides its rich biodiversity, this headland played a significant role in the history of Singapore during World War II. Remnants of the past like tunnels and a fort enabled our cubs to have an interactive learning experience of the British military rule during that era.

But this is no place for a cruise liner?!

Our cubs also had the pleasure of the company of Mr and Mrs John Dwyer from Sydney Australia.  They joined our hike at the invite of our unit leader Mr Yip.  Mr & Mrs Dwyer are adult leaders of young scouts in Sydney. They shared many interesting stories with our cubs and taught them songs and games played by their Australian scouts. Mr and Mrs Dwyer even presented our cubs with lovely badges, much to their immense delight.  Thank you for visiting us, Mr and Mrs Dwyer, we warmly welcome you to join us again in Singapore!

It was certainly an enriching walk with one of our last remaining nature reserves in Singapore.

Nearly 6,500 scouts were present at the 'Adiji (Welcome) Chief Scout' ceremony at St Patrick's School on 25 February 2012. They were there to welcome our President Dr Tony Tan as the new Chief Scout. President Tan will be Singapore's seventh Chief Scout. By tradition, the Head of State of Singapore becomes the Chief Scout of the Singapore Scout Association.

Our cubs were also out in full force for this very special event.

Our cubs tried out the various pioneering structures set up, like this very interesting carousel

This is a view of the model/mock up

They also had plenty of fun at the games stalls, from shooting guns

to throwing cans

to eating a moving sweet.

We all had a great time. Adiji Adiji Ah Ro Ah!
Adiji Chief Scout!

Sports Day 2012

As with every Sports Day, our scouts rose to the occasion to perform all the important tasks lined up for them.

The school flag was proudly held up high by our Akela Lim Ze Yu.

Our cubs were were indispensable
at the starting positions,

at the finishing line,

at the scoreboards,

at the trophies station

They were also such a great help to teachers in distributing food and drinks to the thirsty and hungry pupils.

What will we do without our scouts?
