Girl's Brigade

GB.jpg





















Xinmin’s Girls’ Brigade (GB) lives by its  mission to develop each girl to her fullest potential by equipping, empowering and enabling every girl towards the goal of Every Girl a Leader.

 

As a uniformed group, the girls participate in badge work and drill practices. Badge work nurtures the girls educationally, emotionally, socially and spiritually. Drill instils discipline, unity and respect in our girls. To develop life skills, our girls are given multiple opportunities to lead, plan and participate in a myriad of outdoor and indoor activities.

 

Xinmin GB seeks to develop our girls to lead with the mind and heart. Our girls play an active role serving the community in line with the GB theme "Grasp the Vision: Live the Mission - Be Empowered". As the 42nd company of the GB Singapore, we collaborate with the rest of the GB companies in Singapore to collectively serve special segments in the community by befriending the Lonely, Elderly, Needy and those with Special Needs (LENS). 2019 saw the 8th edition of GB Friendship Day. Our Sec 1 and 2s continue to do their active part in this annual national event. This year we had the opportunity to promote the Bicentennial history of Singapore and GB Singapore to the community. In addition, they continue to reach out to the elderly in the Sengkang neighbourhood and planned programmes to occupy them meaningfully. It was heartening to see that the residents were enthused to participate in the activities offered, such as origami and mooncakes making. Through planning, organizing activities and interacting with the community, GB girls have grown in empathy, active listening and communication skills.

 

In June, the girls participated in the biennial Low Guat Tin Challenge. This wonderful opportunity allowed GB members to collaboratively invent, problem-solve and create digital solutions to address social issues. Both our teams researched on ways to increase environmental awareness through the use of chatbot. One team explored water conservation and another studied various ways to recycle plastics. We are proud to share that both teams walked away enriched from the experience and clinched the silver awards.
