Three Scouts participated in the 32 Km hike to qualify for the Venture Journey.

The Cubbing movement of the College has continued to function from its founding days of the College. The movement continues to gather interest among the Primary School Students with sessions held every Wednesday after school.
At present there are around 30 students who actively take part in activities and games centered around the cubbing movement. After Grade 5 these students are automatically enrolled into the Scouting Movement.
