ST. John Brigade
Mission & Vision
The Riverside St. John Brigade functions very much like a big family in which the teachers-in-charge are the “parents”, the seniors are the “older brothers and sisters” and the juniors are our “little ones”. We seek to reach out to everyone in our big family and bring out the best in all our members as we care about them. We strongly believe that everyone has the potential to succeed when they give their best in everything that they put their heart into.
We believe that by emphasising and focusing on perfecting the first aid and foot-drill skills, our cadets can better fulfil their roles as St.John cadets. Our cadets have done us proud by emerging winners in the various categories. On top of competitions, we also draw out and develop the leadership potentials of our members by appointing capable Secondary 3 cadets as heads of our departments. Being in charge of departments like Administration, Public Duty and Logistics give our cadets many opportunities to run the CCA.
In the Riverside St. John Brigade, every cadet matters. We would have never been able to achieve good results for the Corps Achievement Award if not for the hard work that every cadet has put in. During co-curricular training, students learn about First Aid and Nursing and take part in foot drill sessions. Through these and a myriad of other exhilarating activities, the teachers and senior cadets work together as a corp towards transforming the younger cadets into confident and able young adults who will be useful citizens to the country.
All Sec 2 cadets will be given the opportunity to learn kayaking at the Kallang River. The sessions provided will allow cadets to be a confident rower. Cadets will also get a chance to learn about teamwork and learn to work with one another.
All Sec 1 cadets will be given the opportunity to learn air rifle in the comfort of an air-conditioned shooting range at Home Team Academy. With this activity, cadets will learn to focus on a target and take their chance to achieve the goal they want.
All cadets are encouraged to participate in this Walkathon event on a Sunday, which marks the end of SJAB Walkathon. The 4km walk near SJAB HQ allows cadets to mingle with cadets from other zones. This walk hopes to encourage cadets to stay fit and healthy by exercising and participate actively with other cadets and teachers-in-charge.
Zone and National Competitions
Our cadets put in their best efforts to achieve excellence in both Zone and National Competitions. Cadets practice foot drill routines, First Aid long case, First Aid short case, nursing and patient care and Transportation of casualty drills. Throughout the journeys, cadets also learn to be resilient and empathetic towards one another.
