December 11 last year marked a special event for the Children’s Ark Preparatory School Star and Junior Girl Scouts. The Investiture commemorated the accomplishments of our Girl Scouts such as bridging to another level, earning awards, and receiving Girl Scout pin.
The program commenced with a moment of prayer to the Most Almighty with a doxology. Followed by the Entrance of Colors, the National Anthem, a welcome address and the recital of the Scout Oath — the code by which all the Scouts of the world live by.
The ceremonial Clothing of Neckerchief and pinning of Investiture pins was initiated with the help of parents and sponsors. The ultimate ritual which identifies the young ones as a member of the scouting movement; a person of character ready to serve others; the symbol of purpose and preparedness; and the strong reminder for these scouts to live in accordance with the ideals.
The ceremony — held at the Don Antonio Heights clubhouse — was graced by Ms. Maria Luz P. Buclatan, Girl Scout District Coordinator, Commonwealth Elementary School teacher and a renowned Yolanda survivor.
Ms. Buclatan presented the Girls with their recognitions for their deeds during the year.
