Overview

Vision & Mission

Fairfield Methodist School (Secondary)’s Red Cross Youth unit specialise in teaching first aid skill and evaluation knowledge to our cadets. But more than that the unit strives to teach our cadets about discipline, unity, teamwork through our various activities such as evacuation, foot drills and outdoor activities.

Through this we hope all cadets will learn to live our motto of “To Serve One Another.”

History

Being one of the earliest unit in Singapore, Fairfield’s Red Cross Unit has a history of excellence. We also firmly believe in a Student lead CCA – allowing our students to take the lead in planning CCA activities as teachers take an advisory role. We strive to develop all our cadets holistically and do our best to provide them opportunities to do this.

Highlights

Yearly VIA Experience

Every year the cadets will have a Yearly VIA . This sees them planning and executing a VIA. Often these VIA are a visit to an elder care facility.

End of Year Unit Camp

At the end of every year, we organise a End of Year Unit camp which all cadets must attend. A camp planned by students for students, the End of Year camp the camp is a time for unit bonding. This is often the most look forward to activity of the unit by the cadet.

Secondary 3 Leadership Training Camp

At the beginning of the year, our Secondary 3 Cadets will all undergo a Leadership Training Camp. Spanning across usually 3 Days, the camp is designed to develop our cadet’s leadership skills as they prepare to take over the running of the unit. It is a turning the page affair that many credit as the most fruitful experience they had during their time in the Unit.
