a. INTRODUCTION:

It was in 1906 when Lord Stephenson Smith Baden Powell initiated the scouting movement to foster and develop independence, discipline and love of nature to young boy. Three years later, at the memorable crystal palace rally of the Boyscouts in England , a group of uniformed , self-styled Girlscouts appealed to Lord BP to form a similar movement for girls. Since then, scouting made a great impact to young boys and girls alike. This very day, we are celebrating a memorable moment in a boy or girl’s life: to be welcomed into the boyscout and girlscout organization.

b. ENTRANCE AND COLOR CEREMONY

Let us all welcome the candidates for investiture as they approach the ceremonial ground, followed by the HCEC BSP & GSP, the scouters, the faculty members, our guests with a resounding applause.

i. CANDLE LIGHTING

We are gathered here to welcome to the scouting movement the new members of the troop. To start with, the principal candle will be lighted….To do the honor, let us request SCTR. TERESITA P. NADAL, HCEC Camp chief.

ii. THE SCOUT OATH

Scouts all over the world live by a code – the scout oath. This scout oath describes the three duties that every scout embrace the moment he/she becomes a scout. We will now light the three candles that represent these three duties. To do the honor, may we request Sctr. Dominico Bagacina, Sctr. Dindo Ibarreta and Sctr. Helen Andalis.

His DUTY TO GOD (Sctr. Dindo Ibarreta lights the candle) We, who belong to the scout movement believe in God. We may not all worship Him in the same way, but we are one in out faith that He alone, reigns supreme, Our Lord and Master.

His DUTY TO OTHER PEOPLE(Sctr. Helen Andalis lights the candle) Our country, the Philippines deserves our full love and dedication. The pages of our history are brightened by the outstanding deeds of self-sacrifice and love of our country of great men like Jose Rizal, Marcelo del Pilar, Apolinario MAbini, Andres Bonifacio and others. We do out duty to our country by being noble citizens, by following the laws of the land, by preserving its dignified traditions and culture and by actively taking part in nation building.

His DUTY TO HIMSELF (Sctr. Dominico Bagacina lights the candle) It is our responsibility to develop ourselves into productive young citizens. We should strive to discover our potentials and share our talents to others.

iii. CLOTHING OF NECKERCHIEF

The scout uniform identifies you as a member of the scouting movement, a worldwide brotherhood of scouts existing in more than 136 countries. It also identifies you as persons of character, ready to serve others. It symbolizes as well the ultimate unity of purpose and preparedness for outdoor life, strongly reminding you to live in accordance with the scout ideals. At this juncture, we call the parents to help us initiate our young boys and girls to this noble cause through the ceremonial clothing of neckerchief to the boys and pinning of investiture pins to the girls.
