I am Jing Yao from Maris Stella High School. From Punggol Green Primary School (where I started scouting), I created this website in hopes of sharing my scouting journey to everyone, and blogging about my personal experience. I aspire to continue my scouting journey and be the best that I can be.

Overview of my scouting journey:

  1. Cub Scouts

I was honoured to serve Punggol Green Marlin Cub Scouts as a Senior Sixer, together with Zelda Chia. Together, we were the highest-ranked members of our unit. We had the opportunity to plan different events and help make the unit a better place for everyone to learn and enjoy scouting. One of the more memorable parts of being a senior sixer is having the opportunity to share and influence other people. For example, I used my website-making skills and shared them with my juniors.

Apart from that, being able to participate in the National Day celebration in school was also a very meaningful experience for me. I was able to take part in the flag-bearing segment of the national day event, and through the preparations for it, I felt accomplished that I could represent my school in this.

During my three years in Cub Scouts, I managed to get the Akela Award (the highest achievement one can get from Cub Scouts) after vigorous preparation and going through an interview process. On top of that, I was also awarded the Chief Commissioner’s Award.

My Cub Scout journey is a very fruitful and eventful one, that shaped the way I am today. I chose to continue pursuing my scouting journey and decided to use Direct-School Admission (DSA) using Scouts. After selecting Edgefield Secondary School, Holy Innocents Secondary School and Maris Stella High School for DSA, I received my acceptance letter to all three of these schools. In the end, I chose Maris Stella High School as my secondary school. From then, my scouting journey continued in the Phantom Scouts unit.
