We encourage Scouts to show independence and be responsible for themselves wherever possible and appropriate. It is therefore really important that you encourage your youngster to read this update every week, so that they can ‘Be Prepared’ on their Troop Night. We greatly appreciate your support with this.
To all Scouts, read through this update so you can ‘Be Prepared’ and also have the chance of earning some ‘Scout of the Month’ points. Somewhere randomly placed in this update is an Italian phrase. Find the phrase and translate it into English, you can use google translator or any similar tool. Write the word down on a piece of paper together with the English translation and hand it in at the start of Troop night this week. Don’t forget to put your own name on the piece of paper. Your will get 5 points for the phrase and an extra 5 points for the correct English translation.
Please remember to wear a face covering unless you are medically exempt.
Have you ever wondered why we wear a necka and what its uses are or what our badges mean? You will find out at Troop night this week.
Next week at Scouts you will be able to earn your Hobbies Badge. You will need to do a little preparation so we are giving you a ‘heads up’ There are two options for passing this badge.
Option 1 – If you have been collecting something such as coins, stamps, football cards , model cars, or anything similar for at least 4 months bring along a sample of your collection to Troop Night next week. You will need to show your Patrol your collections and talk to them about it and answer their questions.
Option 2 – If you have another Hobby such as model making, lego building, craftwork or anything similar and have been doing it for at least 4 months, bring along some examples of your work, tools you use or similar. You will need to give a short talk about your hobby to your patrol and answer their questions.
If you already have the Scout Hobbies Badge you can earn a second badge providing it is a different collection or skill the the one you used previously.
If you have any questions about what you need to do, or any help or advice then ask a leader at Troop Night this week or email [email protected]
