REMEMBERING LORD BADEN POWELL

He started the scout movement with only 22 boys on a small island in Dorset, England, 102 years ago.
Today, Lord Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the World Scout Movement must be the happiest man as there are now nearly 28 million scouts, in more than 150 countries. Remembering his noble efforts, scouts from 02 Kinta of St Michael’s Institution organized a modest gathering to remember their founder.
Scout master Christopher Arulsamy said the occasion was organized not only to pay tribute to Lord Baden but to strengthen the set of values enshrined in the Scout Promise – to do one’s best, to do one’s duty to God, to help other people and to obey the values in the scout law.
He advised the scouts to pay importance not only to the skills and knowledge they learn in school but to develop positive values like honesty, reliability and trust. Among the activities carried out were cutting of a cake, singing of scout songs and marching. Invited guests to the event were veteran King Scouts Mr Timothy Chee, Mr Thomas Choo and Mr Joseph Michael Lee.
Note: The event will be published in Ipoh Echo issue 70 (March 15). The school has also submitted the necessary details to the New Straits Times. Well done, Michaelian scouts!
