Boy Scouting

scoutYet another dream of our Rector, Rev. Fr. Clement Gnanapragasam, saw the light of day when the College Scout Group was registered as “493rd Kandy Scout Group – St. Benedict’s College – Kandy, in May this year.

Mr. Langston Comester, a member of our academic staff, with Scouting experience, was appointed as the Master-in-charge of Scouting in early March this year. Getting into action immediately, he attended the Scout Masters’ Training Program – Phase I and got the ball rolling doing all the necessary ground work to have the Group registered and conduct the inaugural Troop Meeting. Mr. Comester completed Phase l and was invested as a Scout Master in the Kandy on 29th May 2015.

The inaugural Troop Meeting was held on Thursday 07th of May 2015 at the college premises with around 60 students enlisting as Recruits. Rev. Fr. Rector, Rev. Fr. Vice Rector, the two Sectional Heads and the members of the staff were present to see the Scout Flag unfurl for the first time at St. Benedict’s College – Kandy.

The inaugural investiture is scheduled for the 4th of July 2015 when around 50 + students will don the Scout Uniform for the first time and add much colour to all the future functions of the school in addition to the many other benefits the Scout Movement has to offer.
