    Eighteen junior scouts from the 3015 Scout Group of Perdana Wazir Secondary School (SMPW) and 35 junior scouts from the 3036 Scout Group of Belait Arabic School (SAB) received their first scouting badge in a ceremony at SMPW’s multipurpose hall yesterday.

    Belait District Scout Commissioner Mohamad Hatta bin Haji Suhaili handed over the badges to the junior scouts.

    Acting Belait District Junior Scout Commissioner Bohari bin Haji Sabli, SMPW Principal Hajah Rahmah binti Pengiran Haji Abas, SAB Principal Hajah Noramalina binti Haji Mohd Ali, and scout members of the Belait District Scouts Association (PPDB) also attended.

    The ceremony began with the recitation of Surah Al-Fatihah led by Acting Belait District Religious Scout Division Commissioner Haji Mohd Roselyzan bin Haji Sipin, followed by the junior scouts reading the oath. The first scouting badge, comprising the World Scout Emblem and the junior scout scarf, were presented to the junior scouts, to mark their achievement in meeting the criteria of understanding, loyalty and respect in scouting.

    Humaira binti Hassan from SMPW’s 3015 Scout Group admitted that learning the customs and traditions of scouting was challenging in the early days of her scouting journey.

    Meanwhile, Muhd Azhuari Mal bin Haji Rosman from SAB’s 3036 Scout Group said the basics of scouting took some time, but he has come to appreciate the knowledge, as it forms the foundation of scouting in the nation and beyond.

    The Junior Scouts Division represents a unit under the Brunei Darussalam Scouts Association (PPNDB).

    The ceremony was in line with the mission and vision of the PPNBD in supporting the physical, mental, spiritual, and social developments of scout members in the district.
