Kedron Scouts were recently presented with the Scouting Excellence Award Badges for 2018 having scored Gold in every section.
Each section was measured against a set of delivery categories. The Scouting Excellence Award is evaluated at a section level, so each Scout can feel they have contributed to promoting and participating in the Scouting program in their local community. The Excellence Award consists of three levels - Bronze, Silver and Gold.
Points were awarded on how the sections fared with maximum points given to all of Kedron¹s five sections - Joey Scouts, Cub Scouts (Monday and Wednesday), Scouts, Venturer Scouts and Rovers.
The categories measured were:
- Category A Membership retention and trained Adult Leaders
- Category B “The Adventure Begins” preparation for Youth Program Review
- Inter-section Activities, including SPICES and the Scout Method
- Youth Leading Adults supporting using the process of Plan-Do-Review
- Section Councils implemented and operational
- Category C Activities undertaken to meet the Youth Members needs, including and participating in Adventurous Activities and the Community.
