These programmes and activities, including song-singing sessions, Bible classes, award classes, 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 Senior Section Awards programme encourages learning and development through a myriad of awards Boys can earn, such as First Aid, Computer Knowledge, Camping, Expedition, Safety, Nature Awareness, International Relations, Physical Training, Swimming, Communications and many more! In fact, there are more than 30 different awards Members can achieve covering a wide-range of knowledge and experiences. Boys can eventually strive to earn the Founder’s Award and the President’s Award– the BB Malaysia’s two highest national awards for the Senior Section.

Members are also encouraged to join our award-winning 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 and have gone on to win awards in national competitions! 1stKL has a very active leadership-development emphasis, and we do this through our military-based Rank system. That is why, in the Senior Section, you will notice some Boys being addressed by ranks like Lance Corporal, Corporal, Sergeant and Staff Sergeant. These Boys are called Non-Commissioned Officers or NCOs. They are Boys who have been promoted to become leaders and to help run Company programmes and lead their peers. NCOs are selected because they demonstrate

  1. Strong leadership potential
  2. Exemplary conduct and character inside and outside of BB
