11th Colombo – Zahira College Celebrating 100 years of scouting this year 2018, organized an Investiture Ceremony for the 375 Singithi Scouts. Investiture Ceremony was successfully held on Monday 12 November 2018 (To day) at the School Ground. Singithi Scouting Started in 2014 in the country. This concept, known internationally as Beaver Scouts, comes from the World Organisation of the Scout Movement, which encourages all students between five and a half years to seven years to experience Scouting. Singithi Scouts will get many opportunities to put their talents to good use and have fun outdoors.
The Singithi Scouts programme will be based on more outdoor activities and fun filled play time that will enable the little ones to bring out their talents. Areas of work include: handwork, games, acting, singing and storytelling. Furthermore, this programme, which is world renowned as one of the best methods, is intended to educate young children through the most simplest of ways. Singithi Scouting has been implemented with the intention of encouraging young children to come forward with their talents and also to prepare them for Cub Scouting. These Singithi Scouts thus began their journey towards reaching the next level of Little Friends and Cub Scouts.The maiden effort of Grade 2 in this most respected community was possible amidst all other school activities. It was a memorable day for our Scout family.
The Chief Guest was welcomed by the Principal of Zahira College Trizviiy Marikkar along with Secretary of the Board of Governors Alavi Mukthar and Chairman of the Scout Committee M. F. S. Muheed and Deputy Principal Razeen Assan.
