Scouts – CCA

Scouts photo2

CPASS Helang group is an extension of the Scouts CCA which provides a platform for self-development and self-discovery. Scouts will aim to learn and demonstrate knowledge of basic scouting skills and mark achievements in areas such as camp craft, fun activities, citizenship and improving the environment.

While we follow the progress and proficiency badge scheme, there will be various modifications and adaptations to instructions and environment to suit the needs of the special scouts. We aim to create a stimulating environment, which prepares boys and girls to face and solve problems through courage, teamwork and creativity. Scouts will be given opportunities to work as a team, exercise responsibility, serve others and even lead their peers.

Our scouts are given many opportunities to participate in activities, events and camps organised by CCA or extension scout community. With this exposure, we hope to develop our scouts into motivated, independent and adaptable individuals who are able to maintain harmonious relationship with others and be a contributing member of the society.

  • Instil scouting values of discipline, responsibility, respect and courage
  • Develop the love and respect for nature in our scouts

Students should:

    • Have a love for outdoor and nature activities
    • Be medically fit with no major behavioural concern
    • Have moderate to good hand function and able to follow and carry out instructions
