Badges...lots of them

Last week we had our Annual General Meeting for the Scout Group and, as has become tradition, we combined this with investitures and badge awards. This year seven(!) of our Scouts were awarded the Gold Award (the highest Scout award), and thanks to our District Commissioner for coming along to make the presentations.

There were also over 200 other badges to present to the other Scouts for their hard work over the last few months.

Australia night

Last week the Scouts did some Australia-themed creative work...making boomerangs and bullroarers (parents might remember Crocodile Dundee using one).

There were some very creative boomerang designs inspired by traditional patterns but some were a bit more up-to-date.

We tried out the boomerangs in the nearby field with limited success...but the bullroarers worked well.
