“On my honour, I promise that I will do my best; To do my duty to God and to the Queen, To help other people, And to keep the Scout Law” – The Scout Promise

We run two Scout Troops at Randwick Scout Group – one on a Thursday evening and one on a Friday evening. Each troop is run by a Leader who is supported by parent helpers. Our Leaders plan and organise a varied and adventurous programme of termly activities.

As the oldest members of Randwick Scout Group, Scouts are encouraged to develop their independence by participating in a wide range of activities. Participation is key to gaining both challenge awards and badges to recognise Scouts’ achievements.

The scouts kicked March off with backwoods pancake outside on our hot plate. All scouts made excellent American pancake batter that cooked well. Those with sweet toothed doused their pancakes in toppings before they were devoured.
 
Both troops visit Cranham Scout centre to do some archery and caving. Scouts practised their aim and endured muddy wet tunnels. Both Thursday and Friday scouts enjoyed a morning of emergency aid 3 at Randwick HQ. Scouts learnt how to assess accidents for initial dangers, how to ring the emergency services, put each other into the recovery position, perform CPR and to deal with choking. 
 
Both troops spent evenings doing some pioneering skills. Fridays scouts made pioneering bridges and drive remote cars over them. Thursday scouts focussed on how to make a sturdy square structure. We hope to be able to apply these skills to a more ambitious project next term.
