Scouts

 

Scouts are in Years 6 to 10 at school and usually meet once a week in the evening for 2 hours. They meet as a "Troop" divided into "Patrols". Each patrol is lead by a "Patrol Leader" or "PL" with an Assistant Patol Leader or "APL" as deputy. Patrols are encouraged to plan and organise their own adventures in order to develop teamwork and self-reliance.
