About Us

girls brigade.jpg
The Girls’ Brigade Singapore believes in developing our girls to their fullest potential as leaders. It is through our Educational, Physical, Social and Holistic programme that the girls develop practical skills and interact with the community. The girls are empowered to lead, learn and grow, and most importantly, to give back to society with a caring heart.

Girls’ Brigade has taught me many things since the time I joined this CCA. Through the numerous events and activities, I learned to be a leader who handles responsibilities, takes initiative, and manages time well. I also made many new friends in the school through this CCA. My Seniors were really friendly and helpful in getting us started by teaching us the basics of the activities such as foot drills. I’m also deeply grateful to my teachers who have put in a great amount of effort into this CCA, making our camps memorable. I enjoy my time in my CCA and I am happy that I chose to join the Girls’ Brigade.
