The Sea Scout Programme implemented in CCKSS' Condor Sea Scout Group this year has seen the boys working on their basic Scoutcraft, swimming, lifesaving and first aid skills during weekly CCA training sessions. Milestone training activities are held during the school holidays – the Troop Expedition during the mid-year vacation and the Troop Camp during the end-of-year vacation. The Troop Expedition tests the Sea Scouts on their leadership, management of resources and navigational skills on a two-day one-night land hike and kayaking expedition. The Troop Camp develops the Sea Scouts in their leadership competencies, self-reliance, initiative and campcraft skills.
All these training activities aim to inculcate in the Sea Scouts 21st Century Competencies, the Scout Promise and Law, and the school values. The successfully imbued values have seen our Sea Scouts bringing home the honours. 100% of Secondary 3 Sea Scouts achieved the National Youth Achievement Award (NYAA) Bronze, and 100% of Secondary 4 Sea Scouts achieve the NYAA Silver. Also, the Troop won the Frank Cooper Sands Award (Gold) for the eighth year running, and Senior Crew Leader Toh Wei Zhi was conferred the Chief Commissioner's Award, continuing the streak of pinnacle award achievers since 2013.
Sea Scouts who have graduated from CCKSS are not forgotten, as the saying goes ‘Once a Scout, always a Scout’. The alumni are actively engaged in opportunities to return and serve the school and develop themselves further in the Condor Venture Sea Scout Unit. As Venture Sea Scouts, they assist the teachers-in-charge and senior Volunteer Adult Leaders in training the current students while working on their own training towards the President's Scout Award. Taking a leading role in rallying the alumni members of the Uniformed Groups, the Venture Sea Scouts also conduct the annual CCKSS Wilderness Survival Course as an advanced outdoor skills training and cohesion amongst graduating student leaders of the Uniformed Groups. The high tempo of training and service has resulted in the alumni being awarded the Frank Cooper Sands (Gold) for the first time.
