Introduction

The Boys' Brigade is the first and oldest uniformed youth organisation in the world founded in 1883 by a Christian businessman in Glasgow, Scotland. It is a Christian Uniformed Organisation for Boys and is recognised by the Ministry of Education as one of the eight uniformed youth groups. The Boys' Brigade is open to Boys from all races, religions and nationalities as it is a CCA activity. It caters to your Boy to complement his academic pursuit.

20J - The 'Greendale Primary' Company

The movement is called The Boys' Brigade and the local unit is known as the Company, thus your child is joining the Singapore Company. The Boys’ Brigade contingent in Greendale Primary School is jointly sponsored by Greendale Primary School and Changi Methodist Church.

The Uniform

The Boys proudly put on their uniforms to help them develop a sense of discipline, identity and belonging. Boys of this age have a strong tendency to form groups and they recognise leadership and the displaying of loyalty to the groups. It is this inclination that the Boys’ Brigade is fostering, that the Boys will know and come to appreciate teamwork. With many group activities during CCA days, the boys learn to work with one another. They eventually begin to appreciate one another’s strengths and learn to support each other in times of difficulty. Through the many challenges, leaders are also born and developed.

Boys put on their BB Polo when they are engaged in sports or rigorous activities. The Polo attire allows the boys to be more comfortable when engaging in sports.

All the Boys’ Brigade teachers, officers and volunteers in Greendale Primary School are truly dedicated in mentoring the boys to the best of their abilities in order to inculcate and impart righteous values in the lives of the boys. Every officer is currently registered with the Boy’s Brigade Headquarters. The teachers serve to manage the discipline of the boys during the activities and ensure the well-being of each child. Do contact the teachers to discuss any matter relating to your child.
