Today is a special day especially for the recruits. It is INVESTITURE DAY!
Investiture is a day when the new recruits receive their scarf and woggle from Akela and this marks the begining of their scouting journey. After today, they will no longer be called a recruit but a cub scout.
A simple yet important ceremony was held in the pressence of the recruit's parents. This ocassion was also graced by our new Principal, Mr Chia.
During the ceremony, Sixer and the Assistant Sixer of each six will take turns to march forward with their recruits to Akela. Akela will ask the recruits 2 questions, then the recruits together with their Sixer and Assistant Sixer will have to place their left hand on the Singapore Flag to recite the scout promise.. Finally, Akela presented the scarf to each new cub.
It is such a joy to see the recruits receiving their scarf and woggle joining the big scouting family.
