Mozzie Buster, 31st May 2014


Written by: Lucas Tan, Senior Sixer & Scribe

“Bzzz… bzzz… bzzz” goes the mosquito! Can you guess what we did today? A group of us went for a Mozzie Buster Programme at the Scout H.Q. where we learnt what Aedes mosquitos are and how to prevent them. The aim of the programme was for us scouts to learn the importance of keeping Aedes mosquitos at bay and then spreading the awareness to others. We even planned out our steps to teach pre-schoolers about Aedes mosquitos – Here, take a look!
