Community Song Badge

Updated 15 December 2014


Introduction

This page provides you with the information on conducting the Community Song badge under the Cadet Proficiency Badge Scheme.


Conducting Community Song Lessons & Assessment

1. As part of the Community Song (CMS/310) badge under the Cadet Proficiency Badge Scheme, and in order to achieve this badge, cadets are required to sing the any 30 songs from the list of songs provided in the CPB Handbook, 3rd Edition (2010).
 
2. Schools are encouraged to conduct the lessons as part of the weekly CCA training's Sing-A-Long session.  This will help to strengthen the bond between officers/teachers and members within the CCA unit / corps.
 
3. Schools are also encouraged to spread out the sing-a-long sessions, and conduct the assessment in a form of a Continual Assessment.

Assessing Cadets

1. Choral Singing at each assessment day / session is NOT allowed.  It will be difficult to determine if cadets are really singing or lip-singing.
 
2. Maximum number of cadets to be tested is recommended at 6 cadets per group.
 
3. Assessment will be based on the ability to sing the songs taught during the lessons / sing-a-long sessions.  No other requirements are needed for this assessment.
