Why Scouting? Scouting is about fun, adventure, discovery and camping. Scouting is also about Achievements, Brotherhood and Sisterhood, Friendship and Leadership. To let the students experience a different and special form of Co-Curricular Activity, Zhonghua Scout Group was started in 2000. We have our first intake of Girl Scouts in 2011.
The Scouts are well versed in pioneering skills where they learn to build structures like towers, bridges and playground (swings, seesaw and slide) using wooden poles and their knowledge of knots and lashings. They are also expected to go for hikes based on their orienteering skills. Backwoodsman cooking is an outdoor survival skill where they learn to cook using dried leaves, twigs and branches in the open. Other than these regular training sessions, Zhonghua Scout Group aims to leave our hometown once a year for other neighbouring countries to learn other interesting and innovative scouting skills and experiences from foreign Scouts. We have been to countries like Malaysia (Johor Bahru, Malacca, Penang and Ipoh), Cambodia (Siem Reap), Thailand (Chiangmai), Vietnam (Sapa, Hanoi and Ho Chih Min) and Taiwan (Tai Chung). Besides these major activities that the Scouts are involved in, they are also exposed to sports like kayaking, archery, night cycling and rock wall climbing etc. Annual camps are where the Scouts learn about teamwork and leadership.
Our Scout group has attained remarkable achievements over the years. We have won the Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards for National Pioneering competitions, National Orienteering competitions and National Patrol Camps. To date, we have achieved 15 Golds and 3 Silvers in the prestigious Frank Cooper Sands Award. Over the past few years, we have a number of outstanding scouts who have achieved the Chief Commissioner’s Award. As such, this motivates our Scout group to excel further in many years to come.
