Who are the Anchor Boys?
The Anchor Boys represent the youngest section in the BB and is for boys from P1 to P4. We meet every Monday night from 6.30 pm – 8.00 pm.
What do they do?
The Anchor Boys have lots of fun doing different activities which include making things, crafts, music, games, sports, stories, going on visits, making friends, and working towards their badges. We also have special ‘fun nights such as “cinema” nights and sports nights and we sometimes have special visitors along such as Owls and snakes! We also have special events when we join with the Junior Section and Company Section. Sometimes we even let parents come along too!
Anchor Boys’ Programme
The Anchor Boys’ programme is not a formal ‘award’ time. Boys gain their awards as they take part in the usual section programme for this age group. The programme involves a wide variety of activities divided into five categories, as detailed below.
Body – fit for fun
A variety of games and physical activities .
Mind – think and do
Puzzles and quizzes, thinking games and treasure hunts, hobbies and collections.
Spirit – God and me
Devotions, prayers and worship, bible stories and characters, and Christian festivals.
Community – me and my world
Conservation, the local community, the church and helping others.
Creativity – make and do
Crafts, simple cooking, and mime and drama.
There are three triangular badges, one awarded in each year of Anchor Boys. The badges are worn on an armband. Upon transfer to Junior Section, the highest badge attained is worn on the Junior Section armband (bottom row), then transferred to the left arm upon joining Company Section. The number of activities required to be completed for award of a badge are detailed below.
