2014 Scout Section Report

Major Events This year we have had a very successful year, in region and district events, including Scout Hike with 3 patrols attending, with one patrol winning gold. District camp held on the June long weekend, two Beecroft patrols attended, one patrol won the district camp competition. We also attended the Sirius Cup at Balmoral in March. Beecroft Scouts also attended other district events such as wide games and district football games. Weekly programming The weekly program is broadly based around the badge work system as well as general education, games and, of course fun. The leadership team work hard to provide a balance between fun, learning and recognition. The badge work system i.e. red to blue to green to Australian Scout Medallion structure is built around the concept of do, learn and teach. The senior scouts contribute with their increased knowledge and by helping leaders teach younger scouts. Youth Numbers We formally have 19 on the books, which is solid. We have lost 4 in the first half of this year, for a range of reasons, including transition to high school, other interests or scouts not being for them. We had 4 cubs come up at the beginning of Term 4 2014 so our numbers are stable from last year. We also had one ‘new chum’ invested at the November and 2 more ‘new chums’ joining this year....

2014 Cub Section Report

Over the past twelve months, we have continued to build on some of our key themes: Providing leadership opportunities for sixers and seconds A focus on developing programmes that provide a greater variety of activities for the cubs, including an emphasis on basic skills (such as knots) and badge work Encouraging parental involvement with meeting night & weekend activities. Currently we have 28 children enrolled in cubs, all of whom regularly attend Tuesday night meetings. This number is around capacity for this hall – we physically can’t fit any more cubs around the parade circle and any more than this number of cubs engaged during activities/games becomes a logistical challenge. Most encouragingly, we presently have a further 15 children on our waiting list and earlier this year we leveraged the list to provide the Committee with two new members (Bin Lao and Rahul Maini). Our healthier cub numbers benefit the scout troop, which is seeing the fruits of a pipeline of cubs going-up into scouts (we currently have 3 cubs linking and will send-up a further 7 or 8 later in term 4). As evidenced above, the broader Group also benefits from lots of helpful parents who step forward to take-on Committee and (hopefully) uniformed leadership roles. By opening up our doors on meeting nights and involving parents in our out of hall activities, we are trying to remove...
