Boys' Brigade

Mission & Vision:

The 58th Singapore Boys' Brigade Company at Riverside aims to develop our Boys mentally, socially and physically.

Our program focuses on grooming the Boys into all-rounded individuals and thus places great importance in promoting reverence, respect, discipline, diligence, consideration, empathy, charity, responsibility and all that tends towards a good and true gentleman.

Our Key Programmes

Community Service

One of the key beliefs of Boys’ Brigade is to serve the community. We aim to develop Boys who have the heart and willingness to serve the community and to care for others. Boys will have plenty of opportunity to contribute their service for the community through various projects such as the annual BB Share-A-Gift and BB Cares. The Boys will be involved directly in the planning and execution of meaningful activities to demonstrate their compassion and commitment to the community.

Moral Development

A key feature of Boys’ Brigade curriculum is Christian education. Every week, our Boys will get to engage in meaningful discussions with other Boys based on their moral education lesson.

Leadership Development

During weekly parades and training, our Boys are exposed to a variety of courses and activities, such as foot drills, kayaking, rock wall climbing, leadership camps and life skill courses such as first aid, map reading and navigation.

Pipeband Lessons

In addition, our Boys can choose to take up Pipeband lessons and be trained by accomplished and experienced Brigade members such as Mr Ong Wey Shi, who is an experienced Bagpiper himself. Through this training, our Boys will have the opportunity to perform in various Brigade-level occasions such as the JM Fraser Award Ceremony and the St Patrick's Day Combined BB Pipeband Performance.

Enrolment Service

In addition, members will get the opportunity to take part in our annual Enrolment service where the members of Boys’ Brigade and Girls’ Brigade work closely together to orientate the new Secondary one members and officers into the Company.
