For Scout Section Whanau

A big welcome to you and your Scout!

Kirikiriroa and St. Peter’s Scout Troop is a special place, where your Scout will experience exciting opportunities to grow and develop as a person, have lots of adventurous, fun, challenging, active, and inclusive activities, and meet new friends along the way.

Scouts have a tradition of helping your child to succeed in life by learning and practicing new skills as well as building their confidence and leadership skills.

Scouts have fun and go on adventures, at home and abroad, they explore the world around them, help others and make a difference – in their own communities and beyond.

Alongside new friends, they will master the skills that will help them weather the storms of life, and try things they might never get the chance to do at home or at school, working with trained volunteers to achieve whatever they set their mind to.

In a society that can often feel increasingly isolated and inward-facing, Scouts build bridges and break barriers.

Scouts seek out the answers to the big questions, and to the smaller questions that don’t seem to matter but really should. Most importantly, they say yes more often than they say no – whether they’re taking part in their first-ever camp away from home or accepting the last of the toasted marshmallows.

While parents are not expected to stay for sessions, if you would like to stay you are most welcome, there are also many opportunities to support your Scout and Kirikiriroa and St. Peter’s Scout Group. If you can spare any time, there is always something that needs doing.

It might be joining Kirikiriroa and St. Peter’s Scout Group Support Team, acting as an Adult Helper at Scouts, helping the group fundraise, or even becoming a Kaiārahi (leader)! There are so many ways you can offer your support to Scouting.

If this is something that interests you, please discuss this with your Scout’s Kaiārahi or the Group Leaders Kakapo and Kauri.

As part of our child protection and safe from harm policy, any adult wanting to assist with any form of Scouting activity will need to be police checked.

You can read more about this on the Scouts Aotearoa website and submit an application.

Any help you are able to give to Kirikiriroa and St. Peter’s Scout Group and the Scout Movement is greatly appreciated.
