Dear all secondary 1 scouts,
Firstly, congratulations on your investiture and I would like to warmly extend my welcome to you all into the Pelandok Family. In the coming weeks, months and years to come, your scouting journey will be filled with fun, difficulties, friendship and memories that you will never forget. I hope that your scouting experience will not end here at Pelandok and that you would continue to use whatever you have learnt in scouts in your daily lives, making a difference to the lives of others.
The message I would like to promote among your batch is “There should be no individual heroism or elitism, as what matters most is that we are a family of scouts, and we work together as a team for the glory of the scout unit.” It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, your background, or whether you have been a cub scout back in your primary days because what matters now is whether you are willing to have the heart to learn and develop. Always remember deep in your heart that an environment of teamwork, friendship and encouragement will ultimately make your scouting journey most valuable. After all, our founder, Lord Baden Powell said this “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together“. |
I would also like to say that your batch is a wonderful batch filled with many talented scouts. Continue to work hard and develop your talents, pursue your passion and reach for the stars. Each and every of you have a special quality in yourself and I believe that you as a batch would harness each other’s potential and spring forward as a team.
Lastly, no matter where you are, you are a Pelandok at heart. You can take away a scout from Pelandok, but you can never take the Pelandok spirit out of this very same scout. Once again, welcome to the community of scouting and WE WARMLY EMBRACE YOU!
