The 2001-2002 marked the beginning of another movement in Auxilium College. A Star destined to burn brightly leading our students to be model citizens of our nation. The Rangers movement was started in Auxilium College on 25th August 2001.
History of the Movement:
Rangers Section is a senior section in guides movement. LORD BADEN POWELL, the founder of movement named this section as RANGERS. The name was adopted from forest Rangers- a man who is a warden of some large tract of forest. This is wild free life with many responsibilities.
