CCE Leadership Programme

Junior Civil Defence (CD) Lionhearters

The Junior CD Lionhearter programme is uniquely positioned as an ambassadorial and "Student Leadership Centric" programme where upper primary level students with leadership qualities are selected to invoke and generate interest among their schoolmates, friends and families on the need to learn EP skills and to take ownership of their own level of emergency preparedness.

Junior Lionhearters CD Challenge 2014
In this Inaugural CD Challenge, our Xishanites Junior CD Lionhearters were put to test their Emergency Preparedness skills which they had acquired during their Hard Skills training. They braved through 7 Total-Defence themed zones with Singapore Discovery Centre pitting themselves in their skills and quick-wit in order to finish as the fastest team in the challenge. The Challenge is designed for our pupils to take home with them on Total Defence Day, a better appreciation of the importance of Total Defence in Singapore and how they can play an active part as Junior CD Lionhearter.
