PANTHER- RHINO PATROL REFLECTION FOR SCUBILLION 2017

Starting about 2 months back up till a few weeks ago,  Rhino Patrol and Panther Patrol have been making regular visits to Cherie Hearts, a preschool. Over there, we interacted with the kids and entertained them. We played games such as Simon Says, Charades and Musical Chairs with them. Originally, the kids were rather bored with us, and often interacted amongst themselves instead of listening to us. This made it rather difficult for us, as we could only get their attention by raising or voices. Furthermore, they refused to obey the rules when playing games, often cheating and making a ruckus amongst themselves. We went home feeling rather frustrated with them, as the effort we were putting in did not resonate with them.

However, a few trips later, the children started becoming more familiar with us. They recognised our names, and paid keen attention to us when we are talking. Surprisingly, they even started obeying the rules, and played the game they way it was supposed to be played. Their spoil-sport behavior vanished.

From this, we all learnt that patience is key. We were very close to giving up at the start, but we decided to be patient with them, and hopefully they would change. And they did.Overall, it was a great way to learn more about these children and interact with other age groups. It allowed us to break away from the usual studying for academic excellence and strive for all rounded and holistic education.

FLYING FISH PATROL REFLECTION FOR PROJECT SCUBILLION 2017

Dear scouts,

Attached below is the reflection done by Flying Fish patrol on their Project Scubillion:

Over the past few weeks, Flying Fish patrol has been taking time after school to visit
Townsville Primary School in Ang Mo Kio to tutor less privileged students and help them
with their school work. Many of us hail from decently well-to- do families, where we are able to afford tuition. However, it is certainly not the case for many others in society. We are honoured to have been given the chance to aid the pupils with their studies, which also brought back fond memories of our own primary school days. We have definitely learnt to be better seniors, better teachers, but more importantly, better listeners.
Through helping these students, we have learnt that patience is crucial when finding out what others know and don’t know so that we know where to start and what to teach.The skill of listening attentively to others that some of us have honed through these sessions can certainly take us far in our lives. It similarly brings us joy and a strong sense of satisfaction to know that we have been able to help them in their studies, and made an impact in their primary school lives. We are happy too, to see them improving and nurturing their academic abilities over the sessions, remembering the things that we taught from past sessions and applying them over the next few.
As the late Martin Luthur King Jr once said, “Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” This is one of the highlighted activities of our scouting journey that we will remember for a long time to come.

BLUE SHARK PATROL REFLECTION FOR PROJECT SCUBILLION 2017

Dear scouts,

Attached below is the reflection done by members of Blue Shark patrol on their Project Scubillion:

” Project Scubillion was a BLAST! We gained a lot from the experience of teaching young kids. For most of us, it was an eye-opening journey and many of us learned a lot while brushing up our scouting skills. Teaching children was very strenuous and rewarding at the same time. We needed to have the patience and determination to teach the young kids how to tie knots and some of them were very stubborn and hyperactive. However, there can’t be yang without yin as there were quite a few attentive kids as well who were very cooperative. Overall, it was a tiring yet joyful experience and all of us benefited from it.​”

BLACK BEAR PATROL REFLECTION FOR PROJECT SCUBILLION 2017

Dear scouts,

Attached below are the images and reflection done by Black Bear Patrol on their Project Scubilion:

Reflection:

“For our Project Scubilion, we went to three childcare centres in total. We held many programmes such as teaching origami, playing games, teaching English Chess and simple knots. After doing Project Scubilion, we felt we became better persons as we learnt how to practise patience.  When we saw the children, we were reminded that we are once like them. We were reminded that our parents had put in lots of effort to raise us up. We were reminded that we should be grateful to our parents for bringing us up from an irritable, young child to an independent, young men. This taught us how to appreciate even the smallest things in life. Apart from that, this was probably our first time doing this and it was a very enjoyable experience teaching these children and seeing them so happy. Indeed, it was a meaningful experience for our entire patrol and provided us chances to exercise our leadership and bond together.”
