SFAS Scouts' Institutional Backyard Camping

SFAS Scouts (Rover Scouts, Senior Scouts and Boy Scouts) held their Institutional Backyard Camping at Hacienda Tinihaban 1, Sitio Takas, Silay City last July 14 – 16, 2017. Different activities were done such as the physical strengthening training, Bivouac drills, team building games and spiritual enrichment.

Before the day was over, all Rover Scouts had a meeting, ticking our checklist to make sure we had everything we needed for the next day. It was a challenge to be a Rover leader. by Angel Dimanalata, Radiant Leader

We prepared different activities for the students especially conducting leadership training and workshops to develop the leader in them.  The rainy weather was a challenge for all. The rain tested their skills, especially when some scouts’ tents were flooded and they didn't know what to do. Everyone had fun helping each other. The scouts learn by experience so they know what to do next time. by Sir Romnick Sadio, SFAS Troop Leader/ Assistant Scout Coordinator

Yes, I felt overjoyed that I nearly cried. I was fulfilled of what I have achieved. I will do my best to get the highest honors this new school year. by Jan Faith Daral, Grade 8

I don’t like the spotlight; however receiving the Best Teacher Award was a compliment. I am inspired by Sir J.R. Abello, striving for excellence and not settling for less. One of my goals is to be competent, not with others, but myself. I believe in Colossians 3: 23 that “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.”
I do what is right and just. I’m always aiming for excellence, I’m not settling for less. 
by Sir Zerlim Montillano
