There were some who had initially wondered if they would gain anything out of participating in the Outward Bound School course. But after the 5D4N course at Pulau Ubin which included a high ropes course, land and sea expeditions, there was no doubt that the Secondary 2 student-athletes learnt much about themselves and their schoolmates.

Divided into groups known as Watches, they were involved in pitching tents and outdoor cooking. Through working together to complete the various physically, mentally and emotionally challenging activities, each one learnt about his own new-found courage and potential as well as others' capabilities, especially in the areas of leadership and responsible decision making.

The OBS Course from 3 to 7 September 2012 brought them back to basics and almost everyone agreed that it was an awesome experience.
