Achievements


2019

On 13 April, our KC Girl Guides Company participated in the annual East Division Day, where Guides from schools in the east division came together to compete and showcase their talents and skills through various competitions. The theme for the competitions was ‘Beyond Singapore’, and 25 of our Guides took part in 7 competitions. They had spent the month of March preparing for the various competitions, having gone through several rounds of feedback from the teachers. We are pleased to share that the Snack Making team comprising Carrie-Anne Lee (S2-01), Ong Ciu Lu (S3-02) and Jenna Aaliyah Edison (S3-06) clinched the Merit Award.

 

Our KC Girl Guides also used the platform to commemorate International Friendship Day by sharing the cultures and Guiding activities from Japan, Korea and Mexico. The Guides not only understood how we are part of a worldwide movement that represents ten million girls and young women, but they also learnt to respect the different cultures and gained confidence when interacting with fellow sister Guides and Brownies.

 

In addition, the KC Girl Guides Company was also presented the Puan Noor Aishah Gold Award for work done in 2018. The Puan Noor Aishah award is a prestigious award presented to Brownie and Guide companies that have fulfilled the criteria set by Girl Guides Singapore; Guides or Brownies have to participate actively in the unit, divisional and HQ activities, serve the community wholeheartedly, and be self-directed when it comes to levelling up their skills and proficiencies; Guiders, who are the teachers-in-charge of the company, have to organise the activities for the weekly meetings, and on top of that, be active contributors in divisional and HQ meetings and activities. This award will serve as a motivation for the Company to continue to strive for excellence in all our endeavours.
