Jiayou for PLTC tomorrow! Give your best, don't give up and pia till the end :)
Always remember all for one and one for all! As strong as you think you are in your individual patrols, it only matters if ALL of you work together as one batch.

For friday's jihe, we had skills training and PT.
Firstly, we jihe-ed at 2.45pm at the science labs area. Latecomers were reminded to be punctual for the next jihe. We then jihe-ed according to our levels for skills training. As most of the Y2s went for speech day rehearsal, we jihe-ed with the Y1s.
Next, we went to get baishengs and mus from tuanbu to teach the Y1s how to tie square lash and diagonal lash. As no specific time was given, we took our time and walked slowly after getting the items. Also, we only took our mus individually and did not care about the others. As a result, we were punished by the Y4s who told us about basic guides rules (one for all and all for one, guides 不是跑就是飞) that we should uphold. Furthermore, our attire was not standard and many of us still wore sports shoes to jihe. We should keep all these in mind and not repeat our mistakes.
Then, we combined with another patrol and taught the Y1s how to tie square lash and diagonal lash. However, due to the time constraint, we did not manage to finish teaching them. We jihe-ed back and were instructed to retrieve 2 duanmus, 2 zhongduanmus and 6 zhongmus from tuanbu in 4 mins, to build a fire altar as a combined patrol. As there were no zhongduan mus, we had to ask for a time extension and jihe-ed back late. We had until 4.10pm to complete our fire altars. As Y2s, we had to guide the Y1s, who did not know how to build a fire altar. Although we made many mistakes in the process, such as tying the square lashes from the wrong direction (down to up/up to down) and tying the mus in the wrong place, our patrol managed to build a fire altar successfully. Our seniors then pointed out our mistakes and told us how we could improve further.
After that we had PT. We ran to the sixth floor and did leg raise while 4 of us took turns to wheelbarrow to the other end of the pathway. After wheelbarrowing, we had to ding boys style for 4mins before changing to girls style position. Also, we did commando crawl and 15 pumpings after a water break.
During PT, we should ask the people running in front to slow down if we cannot catch up and constantly cheer to boost our morale. We should try to pia to the end and make sure everyone's alright too. Then, the Y1s attended a lecture by the Y5s after getting their writing materials from tuanbu, and the Y2s gathered at the science labs area. We learnt some songs from the Y4s and they also quizzed us about information found in the guides notes. I realized that we were unclear about some guides stuff and should probably study the guides notes soon.
Lastly, we jihe-ed with everyone and had 15mins of patrol corner before breaking off.
Love guides! :)

Hello Guides :)
The whole week has been UG week and UG day on Friday ended and it was really fun. In my opinion, UG day is a great way to let us know people from other UGs and make friends with them. After all, as a UG family, we should be bonded as one instead of as 4 distinct groups.
After lunch, we did the mass dance we had been practicing for. After doing it twice, everyone was really high and enthusiastic. Even though it rained and we didn’t get to play the outdoor activities the seniors planned, I still enjoyed myself very much. In the end, we played games like whacko in the classrooms, and then completed the treasure hunt.
The day ended with prize giving and the leisure camp started. After dinner, we were given time to bathe and bond with our patrol mates. Then, the leisure camp started with nightgames!
Nightgames began with a horror movie, The Frighteners. Some found it funny but others found it terrifying. When the movie ended, we started the night walk together with the scouts.
The first station was in the music atrium toilet. We were really scared to go in. The seniors acted so well and it was very spooky. I nearly screamed when I saw the Barbie doll’s hand under the sink. We were very relieved when we could leave the station.
Next, we proceeded to the staircase opposite the Waterside. There, we had to spot the differences between two pictures of a haunted house, while two people went up the stairs. The third station was at LT3, where we had to send in one person at a time to find satay sticks.
The forth station was at the link between the senior and junior high blocks. This station was the second scariest. There, we played murderer and the loser had to answer a question about the paintings on the wall. It was very creepy as some of the paintings were very disturbing, like the one with the skeleton of the girls teeth.
The final station was at the walless classroom, where we had to put a series of scary looking pictures in order. We did not get to complete the second part of this station as it was 1.30am and we had to jihe.
In all, the night games were really well planned and fun.
The next morning, we played some company games like the blanket name game and dead end. The last game was very funny! First, we had to hop to the plate of flour and find gummy bears. After that, we had to try to keep a tissue paper for 20 seconds in the air by blowing it. This proved to be difficult so we were used our hands and feet instead. After we completed that task, we had to place a banana between our legs and walk. After my group was done, all that was left was a bit of the banana skin.
The games ended off a great leisure camp. I feel that we have bonded as a company and that we should have more of such activities. Thank you 中四s for planning this camp!
Love guides :D

For Friday's activity, first we had patrol corner. It was the first time the year 3s were doing a skills patrol corner. Some patrols went through notes, some did gadget tying and some practised lashes. We hope that everyone has learnt something new from this patrol corner and also, year 3s to gain experience about planning activities for the patrol.
Next, the year 1s and 3s had their PT separately. The year 2s went for contigent practise. The year 3s were introduced to some new things, in preparation for PLTC, like doing a reversed boy's style pumping position and 5 people wheelbarrowing with legs on a heimu which 2 people carried.
This PT was tougher, but definitely a good training for the year 3s. No matter how tough the going gets, all for one and one for all, we must stand strong and stay united, don't leave anyone behind and improve together as a batch. Year 3s, jiayou for PLTC.
