Founded in 1960, the Falcon Scout Troop has grown and evolved over the years, taking its place as a premier uniform group in Anglican High School. The unit is committed to groom its members in both their mental and physical aspects. Through scouting, our scouts can have ample opportunities to pursue excellence in various areas. They participate in activities such as pioneering, orienteering, and camping. In the process, they learned important values such as discipline, perseverance and teamwork. Scouts also participate in traditional scouting activities, like campfires which offer opportunities for bonding within the troop and with other troops. In 2012, two scouts from the troop were selected to represent Singapore in 13th National Korea Jamboree held at Gangwon Province, South Korea. In 2015, being SG50, Singapore hosted an International Jamboree to commemorate SG50, and the whole troop from AHS was involved in the significant event.
Through scouting, the scouts grew from little kids to become independent young adults; young adults who have matured both mentally and physically.
2016 was another year of great leap for the Anglican High Falcon Scouts, as the 53rd Patrol Leaders’ Council (PLC) took over the roles of responsibilities and leadership from the 52nd PLC. In May, our 53rd PLC was given the opportunity to enroll in a leadership training hiking expedition, where they persevered and climbed to the summit of Mount Ophir, Malaysia (1,276 metres).
The unit was also conferred the FCSA Honours Pennant for clinching continuous five years of Gold Award. One of our scouts, Ho Jia Yun , was also selected to represent the Scouts Contingent to perform in the SG50 Youth Celebrate! at the Singapore Sports Hub, contributing to the celebrations of our golden jubilee as part of the nation. Overall, year 2015 was a meaningful year for all of our Scouts, and may the Falcons continue to soar to a greater height as our history is continually written.
