Term 2 Activities

Hello Brothers;

To celebrate our hard work for jobweek and finally becoming the only uniformed group who is self sufficient without the need to ask for money from our school, we have organised some "Fun" activities in term 2 for you to look forward to.

I will be planning out the sports proficiency badge for term 2 for all scouts who want to participate. The badge requires partcipation in 2 sports and a competition in both sports in order to qualify for the badge.

Therefore we will be having an Inter-Patrol Ultimate Frisbee and Soccer Tournament immediately after the Mid-Year Exams.

We can use our fridays to train and prepare for the tournament.

Wednesdays are reserved for studying. If you would like to participate, please bring along your maths and science assessment books and textbooks, the leaders and myself will make ourselves available to teach you gentlemen.

After our own unit tournament we will invite the district scout schools to participate when our ventures finish planning for it.

I have included some videos on ultimate frisbee competitions for you to get motivated with...

Remember we train for all the competitions because we live by our promise to do our best and we do it with pride!!!
