“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.

Since resuming face-to-face scouting in the middle of September the Troop has been split into two ‘batches’ meaning that we are able to have all our young people back at the same time but in two separate locations.  

The first week back both batches took part in the same activities designed to teach the young people our definition of social distancing.

The next two week the Scouts took part in knife safety and shelter building as they work towards their Survival Skills activity badge.  Knife safety saw the Scouts learning how to safely use a bushcraft knife firstly controlling the knife by cutting a carrot then moving on to wood looking at rough cuts and batoning.  With shelter building the Scouts were given one of our bushcraft tarps and shown how to build several different shelters.  As the weather was rainy the Scouts quick found the best way to keep themselves dry.
