STINGRAY REFLECTION FOR PROJECT SCUBILION 2018

Dear Scouts,

Below are the images and reflection done by Stingray Patrol on their Project Scubilion 2018:

 

“We found this year’s Project Scubilion to be a very meaningful and enjoyable activity. For our Project Scubilion, we went to Ren Ci Nursing Home to help facilitate activities for the elderly people there. We helped them to do activities such as making musical instruments and helped them learn things like music and a bit of English. We managed to learn a lot from our interactions with the elderly. We found the elderly there to be very inspiring as even though they were all old and some immobile and unhealthy, they all managed to constantly stay cheerful and happy, and tried their best to participate in the activities as much as possible. We felt very satisfied after every session after seeing the elderly people’s smiles and gratefulness for our help, and they even asked when we were coming back again. We hope to be able to return to this place next year to help the elderly there again.”

SEAHORSE REFLECTION FOR PROJECT SCUBILION 2018

Dear Scouts,

Below are the images and reflection done by Seahorse Patrol on their Project Scubilion 2018:

For this year’s Project Scubilion, we combined with Stingray Patrol to visit the pioneer generation at Ren Ci Nursing Home.

It was the first time visiting a nursing home for most of our patrol members, which caused quite some nervousness and apprehension amongst ourselves. However, we soon found it to be an eye-opener.

When we first saw the elderly in the nursing home, we still felt a little tensed. The volunteers were aware about our unfamiliarity with the place and conducted an icebreaker session, where each member of Seahorse Patrol introduced himself to the elderly. Each member was then assigned to a elderly person, and he would accompany the latter to do all the fun activites planned for them.

This reminds us of the Scout Motto: “Be Prepared”. We should not let our fears and anxiety take control of us and affect what we should be doing. We must be ready to take on any challenges and adversities that we may face in our lives, which would be possible if we have have made adequate preparation. For the Sec 1 and Sec 2s, we should step up and keep a sharp mind because in time to come, we would become the new leaders of the unit.

The elderly were filled with excitement and enthusiasm during the activities planned for them. We felt very relieved and happy for them as they were showing such a proactive spirit. We assisted the volunteers at the nursing home in demonstrating certain actions like breathing in and out, which turned out to be quite hilarious as some of us could not do it. We entertained them with music in which we played with musical instruments such as xylophones. Their faces were all filled with smiles and delight and were having an enjoyable time.

During the second session, we assisted the elderly to make musical instruments out of daily materials such as plastic bottles, green beans and rubber bands. Many of them came up with creative ideas and we acted as their “hands” and guided them to build their final product. The session ended with a small musical concert where everyone played their instruments.

The third session was equally as exciting. The volunteers at the nursing home required the elderly to make and hold funny sounds like “a” and “o”, whereby hand movement was also incorporated when making the sounds to allow the session to be memorable.

Overall, our sessions at Ren Ci Nursing Home was very successful and has taught us several values like kindness, joy and compassion.31.png32.png

FLYING FISH REFLECTION FOR PROJECT SCUBILION 2018

Dear Scouts,

Below are the images and reflection done by Flying Fish Patrol on their Project Scubilion 2018:

“Scubilion is a place where we spend our time giving back to the society. No matter how high we get in our lives we should always realise that we should never forget about how much the community has done to us. Hence, we used this platform to give back to the community.

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.”

Yours in scouting,

Dylan

BLACKBEAR REFLECTION FOR PROJECT SCUBILION 2018

Dear Scouts,

Below are the images and reflection done by Blackbear Patrol on their Project Scubilion 2018:

 

“We feel that scubillion was meaningful as we helped the young kids learn about card making, origami, paper planes, knots and also helped them have fun with the games like musical chairs, simpler statues paper planes and uno.

 

We feel that the children were very happy and they enjoyed our visits as well. We also enjoyed being with the children (although seeing all their energy drained mine) and we feel that we also learnt from this experience. We hope we can go back there and do such things in the future

 

We think that this experience has been a meaningful one for us as we managed to gain experience on how to teach others and we managed to help others while enjoying myself too. We think that we are capable of doing more and will try to do better next time.”

Yours in Scouting,

Dylan

PANTHER REFLECTION FOR PROJECT SCUBILION 2018

Below are the images and reflection done by Panther Patrol on their Project Scubilion 2018:

“For this years scubilion we went to a kindergarten in the upper Thomson road area to tech K2 kids as the theme was teaching and preaching and. We all enjoyed ourselves very much interacting with the children and teaching them about things. They were all very entertaining and enthusiastic. For all of us, it was also a very meaningful experience as we got to serve the children and we also had many good experiences and good memories from there. Overall it was an amazing experience being able to teach this wonderful, gifted, special, amazing, smart, talented, enthusiastic, funny, joyful, and accepting K2 children.

We all feel that we have learned more from the little kids that what they learned from us. We learned many important values such as patience in teaching the excited and noisy little kids and also learned the value of perseverance as preparing lessons that the children were able to understand was extremely tough and one of the major challenges.”
