After the long year end holiday, most cubs arrived early for our first scout meeting of the year.
At the sound of the whistles, everyone got into the horse-shoe in a flash. Today horse-shoe is slightly different from the usual, we have close to 30 boys and girls in school uniform joining us. They are our new recruits for 2015. When I saw the recruits, it brought back good memories of me being a recruit... so young... so adorable!!!
After all the horse-shoe formalities, Mdm Kerina & Ms Jocelyn Teo took the recruits for some "getting to know you" activities. Baloo gave out some badges and he encouraged all of us to work towards our next level of Progress Badge. Next, we did some foot drill. We then revised our Scout Promise and Scout Law in our own Six's corner. Although Baloo was very strict with us and ensure that we not only memorized but understand our Scout Promise and Scout Law, I felt that it is important as a scout for us to understand our promise and law and get back to basic.
Daniel, Evangel & I were asked by Mdm Kerina to lead the recruits in some games during the second half of today's meeting. While we were doing that, Baloo got the sixers to lead the main pack in some fun campfire songs. They also played a few games before we ended our first scout meeting of 2015.
Looking forward to the Recruits Camp and our Annual Campfire :)
