Scout Meeting 27th March 2010

This blog was written by Akela


Saturday, 27th March 2010

After a brief term break, which hosted Job Week, the cubs are back in school, and back to scouting activities. After a week of hard work, and experiences in doing jobs for money, the cubs were eager and excited to share stories. Akela asked the cubs to write about their Job Week experiences. The cubs had both pleasant and unpleasant encounters, their joys and disappointment, but all expressed that they had learned quite a bit about people, and how hard it is to earn money. Some have even resolved to ask less money from their parents and to help in housework.

While writing their stories, the leaders collected Job Week money from the cubs. It was hard work, and there a few cases of shortages, which were later resolved. Although the cubs were keen to know who the highest earner was, it was too early to tell as not all had submitted their earnings.


Before dismissal, consent forms were issued to the 21 cubs who had been selected for the District Sixers Training Cam p to be held the following long weekend, while consent forms were were distributed to the rest to attend the district Campfire to be held in conjunction with the Sixers Training camp.
