“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.

October started with the Scouts taking part in several wide games in Randwick Woods and we welcome the new Scouts into the Troop and try to get everyone working together as a team.  The following week the weather wasn’t kind to us so instead of learning how to build fires by lighting one outside the Scouts were taught where to build a fire, what is tinder, kindling and fuel, firelighting tips and tricks using a ferro rod and some properties of different wood.  Hopefully this will help the Scouts attending the winter camp as they try to light fires in the middle of December.

Next came JOTI.  This saw 15 Scouts take part in a night of activities connecting with other Scouts from around the globe finding out about different culture, why they all attend Scouts and what they enjoy.  As well as talking to each other online the Scouts joined in a digital campfire where you could get the chance to see the Scouts you were talking to.  As well as JOTI those staying the night took part in activities aimed at gaining their communicators activity badge such as the phonetic alphabet, semaphore and Morse Code.

The final week before half term saw 5 new Scouts being invested at Cranham Scout Centre as the Troop took advantage of the centre’s tunnelling system and tranverse wall.
