Investiture 宣誓儀式 on October 4, 2015, 1pm

An investiture ceremony is the time when a Scout publicly announces their commitment to the Scout Law. New Scouts need to know, and understand three things: 

1) Scout Promise and Law
2) Scout Motto and Slogan
3) Scout Handshake, Salute, and Sign and the reasons Scouts use them. 

New Scouts also must take part in at least one Scout activity. 

When new members learn and accomplish these four things, they are ready to be invested as Scouts. The investiture ceremony is very important. The investiture ceremony signifies the acceptance of each new Scout by his or her peers. It establishes a relationship where adult Scouter look for the best in and from the Scouts. The youths too will try to give their best; they may not always succeed, but they will always keep trying.

Parents are welcomed to join us!

IMPORTANT NOTE: In addition to the above requirement, only youth with FULL Uniform can be invested.  Full Uniform include:

Beavers - Vest & Hat
Cubs - Grey shirt, black pants, black socks and black shoes
Scouts - Green shirt, black pants, black socks and black shoes
Venturers - Dark blue shirt, black pants, brown belt, black socks and black shoes

If you have any questions, feel free to contact your section leaders:

Beavers - monica.ho@28scouts.org
Cubs - kevin.heung@28scouts.org
Scouts - lester.lo@28scouts.org
Venturers - henry.chan@28scouts.org

親愛的家長們,

我們誠意邀請您到2015年10月4日本週日下午1點的宣誓儀式。

宣誓儀式儀式是當童軍公開宣布他們對童軍法律承諾的時候。新童軍成員需要知道和了解三件事情:

1)童軍諾言和法律
2)童軍座右銘和口號
3)童軍握手,敬禮,並手勢,以及我們使用它們的原因。

新的童軍還必須參加至少一個童子軍的活動。

當新成員學習並完成這四件事,他們準備便準備好做童軍了。宣誓儀式是非常重要的。宣誓儀式代表團隊接受了新成員。領袖和新成員建立了一個關係,會對於新成員期待最好的表現。童軍們會以他們所能做到最好;他們可能不總會成功,但他們將永遠繼續努力。

重要提示:參加宣誓儀式成員必須穿著全套制服,包括:

海狸 - 背心和帽子
小狼 - 灰色上衣,黑色長褲,黑襪和黑色皮鞋
童軍 - 綠色襯衫,黑褲子,黑襪子,黑皮鞋
資深童軍 - 深藍色上衣,黑色的褲子,皮帶,黑色襪子和黑皮鞋

如果你有任何問題,請隨時聯繫你的部門領導:
