Badges & Games, 27th September 2014


Written by: Evangel Wong, Assistant Senior Sixer & Scribe

BEEP!” “BEEEEEEEPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!” Everybody rushed to gather in horse shoe.We did the normal routines and gathered in Indian file. Baloo asked us how many people have already earned our gold arrow. A few hands shot up, but Baloo was not satisfied :( Baloo asked how many people got their silver arrow...still not many people raised their hands (Baloo shook his head..) Then Baloo asked how many people have their bronze arrow. A few more people raised their hands but Baloo was not impressed...

Baloo smiled,then laughed then shook his head.(Baloo was disappointed!) He told us that we all have to try to get our bronze arrow at least. He told everybody to break up in our six and HELP EACH OTHER so we could earn more badges. Baloo instructed the ones which got their bronze arrow to help the ones who do not have it and the ones who got their sliver arrow to help the ones which got bronze arrow but need help with their sliver arrow.....and so on...

Baloo told Claudia, Daniel and myself to help indivivual groups which needed a little more help... Then Claudia commanded everyone to break of in their own sixer's corner, and to take their black book and yellow book along.We had quite sometime to work this , everyone tried their best to earn more badges (focusing on the arrow badges mainly)

After some time we gathered back in Indian file . Then, Baloo gave out plenty of different arrows. Everyone clapped loudly for their friends which earned their badges. Those going up to recieve their arrow badge all smiled from ear to ear very proud of their achievments!!

Then...  it was GAME TIME!!!! We were going to play captain's ball! YAY! So Claudia, Daniel and I explained the rules.  Claudia, Daniel and I were the refree for the games.

After all the games we gathered in Indian file , Baloo discussed with us about what we have learned during the games.. there were different answers some said Teamwork, some said about having fun and not about winning... We also learned that if we help each other it will seem much easier to get a task done (eg. Helping each other to earn our badges).... like how I earned my badges..with help from my best friend.We all learned something this meeting .

We had our normal Horse Shoe and ended our meeting.
