Growing Up in 1st KL!
The Junior Section is designed to especially for children aged 9 to 12 years old. They meet at the Legacy Center of Wesley Methodist Church KL from 1:45pm to 6:30pm.
During our weekly programme, our Junior Section Members carry out a variety of activities, lessons and projects that encourage holistic development, encompassing four areas: physical, educational, spiritual and social. This may be achieved through a variety of programmes and activities, including song-singing sessions, Bible classes, art, crafts, drill and games. From time to time, we will also organize excursions and special programmes like camps, adventure activities, educational tours and participation in state as well as national events.
Our Junior Section Awards programme ensures systematic learning and development as Members earn up to six awards based on colour: beginning with WHITE, GREEN, PURPLE, BLUE, RED and SILVER. Once they have successfully achieved these six awards, they will be eligible to sit for the GOLD AWARD – which is the highest national award for the Junior Section.
Juniors are also encouraged to join our Brass Band – where they will learn teamwork and music under a qualified instructor. Do not worry even if your child has had no formal music training – many of our Boys first picked up their musical talents through the 1st KL Boys Brigade Band!
In the Junior Section, you will also find many children being appointed to lead programmes, as part of our continuous leadership development paradigm. Also, some are appointed as Leading Boys and Assistant Leading Boys to take care of their Squads.
You and your child are most welcome to visit us for a preview of our programme. If you do visit, we encourage your child to be equipped with the following items:
- Please come in shoes – as we have many adventurous activities that require them
- Water bottle (We have water dispensers available)
- Sports attire (T-shirt, sports shorts, socks and shoes)
- Some stationary (pencils, notebook, etc.)
