Every girl a leader. This is what the 40th Girls’ Brigade Company strives to achieve through the thrilling and fun activities that we have each year. Our training programme and activities are designed to equip, empower and enable our girls with opportunities and responsibilities to grow and become a leader.
To help develop their leadership skills the Girls are sent for the bi-annual Low Guat Tin Challenge where they pair up with other Girls from other schools to complete a series of complex tasks which require them to solve puzzles, test their decision-making skills and be competent with Brigade Knowledge. The Girls also take part in many camps in Singapore and overseas, such as the Combined Non-Commissioned Officers’ Training Camp (NCOTC), the WOW Camp, and the Overseas Service Learning Trip to Chiang Mai. The Overseas Service Learning Trip to Chiang Mai was an eye-opening experience for all and it left the girls with the wanting to go back to serve Care Corner Orphanage in Chiang Mai again this year. This has helped to develop in them to be better active and contributing global citizens.
In conjunction with Girls’ Brigade Singapore’s 90th anniversary, our girls were privileged to be able to be part of the Singapore Book of Records for the most number of people sewing a fabric montage at the same time. The team comprising of our Secondary Two to Four girls guiding the Primary School girls and they attained the Gold award for the Challenge. On the national level, we are pleased to mention that Matilda Thia Wea Xuan (2E3) was selected to be part of SG52 NDP Girls’ Brigade Marching Contingent. The Girls have also worked hard and achieved the Gold Award for the 5th year running at the annual Girls’ Brigade Awards and Promotion Ceremony in 2018.
