For hands-on experiential learning, our JWSS RCY cadets were taught to sew stuff soft toys by the staff at Maison Chance Take Wing Centre, one of the several charitable organisations which trains the handicapped with technical knowledge such as painting, sewing and baking. At the Thien Dyuen Orphanage. our RCY cadets busied themselves happily in crafting bracelets for their residents (8 months to 16 years old). Our cadets truly empathise with many of these residents who suffer from physical disabilities and are abandoned by their families. After this trip, our cadets learn to appreciate their loved ones and their fortunate lives much more, living in Singapore.

Unit Highlights for the Past Years:

  • All cadets will be sent for a professional course to be certified as Standard First Aiders.
  • Annual Training and Bonding Camp in March.
  • For cross cultural exchange, we have hosted Japanese Red Cross Society members and delegates from Japan’s Gunma Prefecture in 2016 (*click here to read more!)
  • Travelling overseas at the end of the year for CIP involvement and we have visited Cambodia in 2009, Vietnam in 2010, Hong Kong in 2011, Taiwan in 2012, Vietnam in 2013 and 2017, Taiwan 2014, Bintan in 2015.
