Scouting, also known as the Scout Movement, is a worldwide youth movement with the stated aim of supporting young people in their physical, mental and spiritual development, through the Scout Method, that they may play constructive roles in society.

Scout method, a program of informal learning with an emphasis on practical outdoor activities, including camping, woodcraft, aquatics, hiking, backpacking, and sports.


The Pelican Scouts mission is to provide a safe, fun and exciting programme, based on the Jungle Book, for young children to become responsible and considerate individuals through the Scout Promise and Law.

Job Week 2018, 10th to 16th March 2018

Written by Cheong Yew Chung, Asst Sixer & Scribe

“Beep! Beep!!!” The Senior Sixers signaled for the Indian file formation and we sat down. That day was not like any other meeting. We assembled at 8am. Today is the start of the week-long Job Week. We are gathered at the school for a final briefing before we set off to the various locations to begin our Job Week 2018. We will be going door to door for simple jobs to earn money for our unit.

Mr Cheong told us how much we needed to earn for our bumble bee badges and for the respective specially made woggles. Mr Tan told us what jobs that we can do  and we wrote down in our Job Week card. Lastly, he warned us not to get disappointed if someone refused to give us job.

It was heartening to see so many parents in the Kids' Zone, ready to send their kids to the starting locations once the briefing ended. All the cubs looked as though they couldn't wait to start Job Week.

This year will also be a good experience for me as I had to take care of two new scouts.

At 8.45 am, we were all dismissed. Everyone excited to land their first job. Wish all Henry Park Pelican Scouts have a fruitful and exciting Job Week.

NB: Photos will be downloaded later. Watch out for them.
