Stepping-Up Ceremony & 163rd Anniversary Parade 11th July 2015 (Saturday)

Dear Scouts,

Yesterday, we witnessed the stepping down of our Secondary 4s and the stepping up of our Secondary 3s. It was a memorable ceremony that we would always remember for the seniors who have done the unit proud and most importantly, journeyed with us as one and taught us the ropes.

Our seniors were not just a group of capable leaders, they were always passionate, enthusiastic and patient to help us as we journeyed with them. The good times, we had celebrated together and the bad times, we had braved it as a unit. Although our Secondary 4s have stepped down from their posts, their spirit still lives on and will kindle as long as we continue to work as a unit towards keeping the scouting legacy and passing on this burning passion in all of us.

From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank all the Secondary 4s for all they have done, all the times they have gone through with us. We wish them all the best for their upcoming O’ Level examinations.

To our Secondary 2s, we believe you will continue to work hard for the unit and strive to do your best. For the Secondary 1s, we hope that after journeying with us for the past 7 months, you feel part of this scouting family and inspired to follow the footsteps of the Secondary 4s.

Last but not least, thank you teachers for your continuous support for the scouting unit and for encouraging us as Secondary 3s to do our very best for the unit in the year ahead.

Apart from the Stepping Up Ceremony, we also participated in the Anniversary Parade. We would like to thank all Scouts whether you were part of the marching contingent, reception, crowd-control or prize-giving, for your efforts to ensure the Anniversary Parade was a success.

We would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate Mr Alphonsus Gregory for attaining the Long Service Award for 30 years of scouting as well as Mr Chong Chow Wee for 5 years.
