Since 1964, Gan Eng Seng School Corp has been striving forward, in the service of humanity. We seek to equip our cadets with training in first aid and ambulance services, as well as character and leadership development.
Our trainings are currently held bi-weekly. During our trainings, we conduct first aid lectures, home nursing lectures, Transportation of Casualty (TOC) training, foot drill training as well as physical training. Other than that, we occasionally conduct games to foster the unity in our unit.
We render our first aid support in various school events such as the annual Sport Fiesta and Cross-country race. We also reach out to the community and support public events such as World Water Day as well as events at Queenstown Community Centre.
Our cadets go through a myriad of activities to hone various skills and develop their character and leadership potential. The training activities include first aid skills and knowledge such as Basic and Standard First Aid, Home Nursing, Basic Life Support and CPR-AED courses. We also have foot drills, triage, recreational sports and physical training.
We also provide other interesting courses such as archery, cycling, SANA, Civil Defence courses for our cadets’ holistic development. Some of the cadets also participated in the Gardens by the Bay (GBB) Ambassador programme, where they undergo training by GBB on guiding as well as important nature and conservation messages.
In our charity sector, we have been helping out in fund raising events like the Annual Flag Day and Walkathon. Gan Eng Seng Corp has been one of the top collectors for both events, since 2013.
Our members also get to participate in major events such as Commissioning of Colours and National Day Parade.
