I hope you guys are enjoying your prosperous Chinese New Year break. After collecting all those red packets, awkward-ly changing conversation topics so that you can sell relatives your SJI Donation Draw tickets and 'lo hei'-ing until a mess of ingredients land on your face, we're getting back to the sad reality of life - school. However, we still have scouts to look forward to, even though we're just looking forward to every Friday we can grab on to.
As you may have guessed, we have scouts this week. This past 2 weeks, you would have finished your syllabus for your advanced standard. However, you would not have officially passed until this Friday. This Friday, we would be having the real tests for what you have learnt.
Date: 27 January 2012
Time: 1500 - 1830
Attire: Full Uniform (Fall-In/Out) + PE Attire
Duty Patrol: Lion Patrol
1500 - 1530: General Fall-in
1530 - 1730: [Footdrill / Knots / First Aid] Tests
1730 - 1800: Physical Training
1800 - 1830: General Fall-Out
Your PLs would be with you guys. So, with appropriate division, each test would last for 40 minutes. This is inclusive of a 10 minute revision with your PL, just in case you need any extra tips/re-cap. This will be your rotation:
1530 – 1610
Blackbear + Leopard + Lion + Panther - (1) - Footdrill
Rhino + Tiger + Blueshark + Dolphin - (2) - Knots
Flying Fish + Seahorse + Stingray + Swordfish - (3) - First Aid
So, after 40 minutes, (1) goes to (2), (2) goes to (3) and (3) goes to (1). Simple. Footdrill is at Track, Knots is at The Pavillion and First Aid is at the Canteen Stalls.
Just in case you were ignoring your instructor during your lessons (which you should not), this is basically what you need to do.
Footdrill - Practice at home, remember the commands and their appropriate
Knots - Learn knots via YouTube, that's what I did.
First Aid - Trust me, you don't really need to remember anything.
Anyway, good luck for the tests. You won't really need it though. We're all so blessed after Chinese New Year. Enjoy your break and rest well for scouts.
