UG Camp preparations

Dear parents


Some tips before the camp:


Rather than a trolley luggage, a haversack or duffle back is preferred. This ensures that the child can carry their own bags.


There will be a briefing for all camp participants tomorrow morning. Cubs, please look out for the announcement.


Do encourage your child to pack their own bag. You may supervise them. This ensures that they know what's in the bag. It's advisable to put each day's set of clothes in a ziplock bag / plastic bag so that the dirty clothes can be kept in the bag after the shower. We have a lot of instances of lost clothes when the kids go to the shower without a bag, or kids getting upset because their parents or helper forgot to pack an item for them. We do wish to instill a sense of responsibility and independence in the kids, so we greatly appreciate if parents can partner with us on this.


Thanks so much!

If the weather is good, we will have the ceremony at the courtyard. However, if it rains, we will have it in the hall.

Pupils will report for CCA at 2pm as usual and stay on till we break camp on Sat, 12noon. Kindly pick up your child at the Meeting Point by 12 noon.

Thank you in advance for your support!


Job Week 2017

Dear all,

Your child would have brought back the 'Job Week' card on Friday, 24 February. We need your assistance to remind your child to keep it properly, as you will need to make a police report if the card is lost.

To encourage the Cubs to participate in this activity, they will get the Bumble Bee badge upon submission.

Job Week is to inculcate the value of honest hard work. This is also a fund raising activity (Half the amount raised will used to cover expenses in SSA while the other half will be given back to the NYPS account parked in SSA), and we appeal to you to help give some jobs to your child to help him/her earn some money.

Please note that the official Job Week period is during the March holidays. However, SSA had said that as long as it's a pre-arranged activity by the school, scouts are able to work outside of the stipulated period. I have informed our school staff that our Cubs might approach them to ask for jobs. Please do encourage your child to be pro-active in asking their teachers and relatives.

Pre-arranged Job week (4 March)

President Tony Tan, Chief Scout of Singapore,
 launched the Scouts’ Job Week at the Istana in 2016
Dear parents,


Job Week is an annual activity conducted for all Scouts to instill an appreciation of the dignity of honest labour and the value of hard work. It is about developing values in our Scouts so they become better leaders & citizens of our World. The funds raised will support Scouting activities (50% to HQ expenses and 50% to our unit).

If you are able to accommodate 20-30 Cubs in your office on the morning of 4 March, Saturday (or any other time) for job week activity, kindly email Mrs Pwee at lau_hwai_bing@nyps.edu.sg by 25 Feb 2017. The preferred date (4/3) given coincides with the Overnight Camp, and we will have more Cubs  participating in the organized Job Week activity.

Nevertheless, we welcome any pre-arranged job bookings for any number of Cubs you are able to take.

Organized job bookings for the cubs are:

- Safer as they are in a controlled environment.
- Good introductory session to Job Week for new Cubs.
- Prepare Cubs for the jobs they will experience outside.

Should you have any feedback or queries, feel free to email or dojo us.
