Through the GB Junior Programme the 87Th Coy aims to develop the character of our GB members in tandem with our GB mission and the school values of respect, commitment and collaboration.
Due to the on-going Covid-19 situation in 2021, the Coy adopted social distancing and other precautionary health measures in the first semester for her face to face, in-person CCA sessions. We implemented online CCA in the second semester.

SILVER Award - Dr Low Guat Tin National Challenge
The school’s Girls’ Brigade (GB), 87th Coy received a Silver Award at the Dr Low Guat Tin National Challenge on 16 August 2021.
The National Challenge encourages GB girls to seek creative ways to improve the lives of those around them – expanding the boundaries of their capabilities and empathy towards their world. The theme for this year is “Better Minds, Better Tomorrow”.
Our GB Coy sent in 31 submissions. Of these, 5 received Silver and the rest, 26 Bronze award. Five of our P6 girls who won Silver put together their experiences on mental well-being, collaborated and produced a short video. The other 26 members from mixed upper levels worked in groups and submitted posters and writing.
You are my Superhero! - GB appreciates our healthcare workers
From 26th to 28th February 2020, Girls’ Brigade (GB) members rallied fellow pupils, teachers and staff members to sign big appreciation cards to present to healthcare workers in our hospitals. Tag-lined “You are my Superhero!” the girls realized that they could show appreciation to the super heroes fighting the COVID-19 virus at the frontline. These are our nurses, orderlies, cleaners, security guards, doctors, pharmacists, reception officers and many other healthcare workers in the hospitals.
We hope that this service project has helped our GB members to live out their motto of “Every Girl, A Leader” while practising school values of ‘Appreciation’, ‘Respect’ and ‘Graciousness’. At the same time, our girls have also contributed to the two pillars of Total Defence, namely, ‘Psychological Defence’ and ‘Social Defence’.
These are what some of our GB girls have to say about the VIA project.
“That people are really grateful and appreciate the doctors and nurses at the hard times. I am glad that our pupils are more than happy to sign the cards.”
Jeeya, Primary 5 Compassion
“Many people are writing letters to doctors and nurses in Singapore. So the people in the hospital feel better.”
Keshini, Primary 4 Compassion
“I observed that a lot of efforts had been put to make the cards…I will appreciate the nurses, health care workers and doctors more.”
Xin Tong, Primary 6 Compassion
The final tally of 55 A3 size encouragement cards have been posted to 3 hospitals, namely, Sengkang General Hospital, Changi General Hospital and Singapore General Hospital.
Our Girls’ Brigade 87th company sent a team of eight P5 girls to take part in the Dr Low Guat Tin (LGT) Challenge on 1st June (Sat) 2019. The LGT Challenge is a national completion that is held biennially. The pupils were challenged to code and program a Micro:bit device that would help the environment.
As a result of their participation in this challenge, the girls learnt research skills such as data collection and critical thinking. They also exhibited the school values of commitment and collaboration while working together and supported one another when faced with a problem. They overcame their shyness to confidently present the device to the judges. Through the hard work and effort put into their Micro:bit device, the girls aimed for excellence and managed to clinch a bronze award for this year’s LGT Challenge!
