01 Kinta Scouts 90th Anniversary


To commemorate its 90th anniversary, the 01 Kinta troop of ACS Ipoh, held a jamboree within the school’s compound recently. The 01 Kinta troop has come a long way since its formation proving that scouting values have never lost their appeal. This year’s theme was “Past, Present & Future”. The objective was to connect all scouts, old and new, as a means to revive the scouting spirit. Ramesh Muthiah, a consultant engineer from Manchester, recounted the movement’s history and its many luminaries. Senior Assistant of Co-Curricular Activities, Manoharan, described scouting as a game of purpose and encouraged members to find ways to capture the hearts of youths. With a turnout of over 750 participants the gathering was a success. Competitions such as marching, backwoods cooking, banner designing and others were held. Main Convent took the cooking title while St Michael’s Institution, the foot drill title. Overall champion was Ave Maria Convent.
