Five BB Primers receive President’s Award

Nov 2019    

The President’s Award Presentation Ceremony at the Istana marks the finale of a long journey of six to 10 years for Primers. Being the highest award attainable in the Boys’ Brigade’s (BB) Primers Programme, the award is the capstone for a BB Boy turned Primer.

On 9 July 2019, five Primers were conferred the prestigious President’s Award by President Halimah Yacob. They are:

  • Senior Cadet Lieutenant Samuel Wong Jia Qi, 33rd Singapore Company, sponsored by Fairfield Methodist School (Secondary) and Aldersgate Methodist Church.
  • Senior Cadet Lieutenant Elijah Tan Jing Kiat, 93rd Singapore Company, sponsored by Yuying Secondary School and Living Sanctuary Brethren Church.
  • Senior Cadet Lieutenant Aaron Heng Tee Yoong, 12I Singapore Company, sponsored by Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) and Barker Road Methodist Church.
  • Senior Cadet Lieutenant Gareth Pang, 60th Singapore Company, sponsored by Raffles Institution and Kampong Kapor Methodist Church.
  • Senior Cadet Lieutenant Pan Jia-Cheng Jason Timothy, 12I Singapore Company, sponsored by Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) and Barker Road Methodist Church.

The five Primers were elated to be celebrating the occasion with their family, friends and BB stakeholders. They were also excited to have the opportunity to interact with the President of Singapore at the reception.
