KG. PANDAN, KUALA LUMPUR – It’s the annual school drill competition again. This year would be a tough one for us the BB, as many of our seniors left after Form 5 and the recruits are not quite ready for competitions yet. Our number of members has decreased compared to last year but that did not stop us from joining the competition. I've never set any expectation for this years competition but of course I really do hope to defend our title.
At around 10am, the competition started with uniform inspections. Groups by groups was inspected and we are good to go for the competition. There are 7 groups this year - Kadet Polis, Kadet Bomba, KRS, Persatuan Bulan Sabit Merah (PBSM), Pengakap and last but not least, The Boys’ Brigade.
We’ve been called back to the marching ground for the announcement of the winners. As expected, PSBM won the competition and we have failed to defend our title. However, we did manage to win second place. We are all feeling disappointed but I’m proud of my squad members. We managed to get out on field and compete with just 2 days of practicing and preparation.
