In Phase 3, Scouts has been running since April 2012. The group is comprised Clare and Lesley as Leaders, Cub Assistant Ruth and myself. We are supported by our Teaching Assistants and without their help and enthusiasm, the Scouts pack would not be so successful.

On a Wednesday afternoon we meet in the Lower Dining room where we spend our time junk modelling, singing camp fire songs, making marshmallow towers, playing games, encouraging new friendships and learning new skills, such as different sports. Our Sensory Scouts groups meet on a Thursday afternoon.

All of our Scouts are working towards badges that they can earn by completing activities and they will work on achieving these over the year. Previously, Scouts have earned their disability, chef and swimming badges. This year they are working towards world and personal challenge badges.

Scouts provides a great opportunity for the students to be involved in a movement that allows them to develop skills they show a particular interest in and form new friendships.
