CCA Description


We are the ones you often see during National Day Parade clad in blue with a light brown scarf. The Girl Guides is about sisterhood and bonding young girls together as well as forging life-long friendships.

It is also the only uniformed group in Naval Base Secondary School meant exclusively for girls.

The Guides motto is to ‘Be Prepared’, that is, to be ready for any form of duty that may come our way by practicing beforehand.

9. A guide is thrifty and diligent 
10. A guide is self-disciplined 

Aims and Objectives


The aim of the Girl Guides Movement is to provide girls with the opportunity for self-training in the development of character, responsible citizenship and service to the community. Hence, in Naval Base Secondary School, we conduct team-building activities and skills training such as games, kayaking, dragon-boating, gadget-making, knotting and lashing, and courses which will earn us proficiency badges like the Crime Prevention Badge and Healthy Lifestyle badges. We also provide Yeoman Services during school events and events organized by Girl Guide Headquarter. Guiding is a game of adventure, observation, knowledge and ideas. It is an education in life skills that will encourage each girl to be a responsible citizen and to lead a useful life.

Our programmes are made up of footdrill training, games, test works, external badge courses, knotting and lashings, sing-a-long sessions. All these serve to enable the girls in the acquirement of guiding skills through hands-on experiences.

Achievements
