Chan Kwan Ho Ambrose (5D) and Wong Wai Tan Ivan (5E) were presented with the "Chief Scout's Award
" by Mr. C Y Leung, the Chief Scout and the Chief Executive of the HKSAR, also at the Hong Kong Scout Rally. The Chief Scout’s Award is the highest award for the Scout Section of the Scout Association of Hong Kong.
