St John Brigade (SJB)
In SJB, cadets participate in a myriad of activities such as home nursing, hospital attachment, camping, outdoor activities and more, over the course of 4 years. During the weekly trainings, the cadets undergo continual upgrading of their first aid skills and knowledge. This enables them to assist in rendering first aid during school and public events. At the time of each cadet’s graduation from Xinmin Secondary, s/he would have attained, at least, Certification in Basic First Aid and/or Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) + Automated External Defibrillator (AED).
Beyond acquiring skills that our cadets can use during critical situations, SJB provides an important platform for them to relate to their peers through problem-solving and teambuilding. The activities and challenges in SJB aim to contribute to the holistic growth of the cadets so that they may become outgoing and confident individuals who are physically and socially active; who learn to not only work well in teams, but also to extend their reach to positively impact society.
Bagging its 17th Gold for Corp Achievement Award since 2001, Xinmin’s St. John Brigade (SJB) has proven its tenacity and excellence through its training programmes, focusing on First Aid and Home Nursing proficiency.
