In 1950, James Tseng, then a young teacher, helped revive the Scouting movement in SJI following its disruption during the second World War. He adopted the Scouting name ‘Pelandok’, and Scouts of SJI began calling themselves Pelandok Scouts. James Tseng went on to serve as the Group Scout Leader from 1950 to 1997.

Yours in scouting,
