history & Accomplishments
1994 - 1995.
Gryphon Scouts Troop was founded when Hong Kah Secondary School requested for help from The Singapore Scouts Association to start Scouting as a Co Curricular Activities(CCA) in the new school. The Intention was to start a meaningful CCA which can help to reach out to youths at risk of delinquency. Assisted by Scout Leaders from Griffin Scout Troop, The leaders organised a camp for about 10 of these youths at risk held at Sarimbun. This formed the first patrol of Gryphon Scouts in HKSS.
The first few Scout Leaders in Gryphon Scout Troop were Nick Seah, Daud Mustapa and Tan Kian Hwee.
Our troop formally recruited our first batch of around 20 Secondary One Scouts on our first ECA (CCA was known as extra curricular activity at that time) orientation day.
Gryphon Scouts Troop organised a campfire held at our home ground, with the theme of 'Futuristic' in celebration our 10th Year Anniversary of Scouting. There were more than 300 participants from different Scouts Troops. The campfire was also attended by our overseas brothers scouts from China.
Five years after our 10th Year Anniversary Campfire, we celebrated our 15th Year Anniversary and organised another campfire with the theme of 'Kampong'.
