Joeys 6 - 8

Information for Parents (Sat 12:55 pm - 2pm)

Joey Scouts are boys and girls between the ages of six and nearly eight. This Section provides an introduction to Scouting through a wide range of enjoyable activities.

The activities are aimed at helping the Joey Scouts learn about themselves, nature, helping others and finding fun in accordance with the Joey Scout theme " Helping Other People".

The Joey Scouts form what is called a Mob, which is led by a number of leaders. Leaders are not referred to as Mr or Mrs but names from the friends of the forest in the Australian bush or Aboriginal names, for example Brolga, Bilby and Wombat.

 

The Scout Promise

There are two versions of the Scout Promise to be used by all members (youth and adult).
Individuals taking the Promise may choose to use either of them:

On my honour, I promise
To do my best,
To be true to my spiritual beliefs,
To contribute to my community and our world,
To help other people,
And to live by the Scout Law
--- or ---
On my honour
I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to my God, and
To the Queen of Australia
To help other people,
And to live by the Scout Law

The Scout Law is:

Be respectful
Be friendly and considerate
Care for others and the environment
Do what is right
Be trustworthy, honest and fair
Use resources wisely
Believe in myself
Learn from my experiences
Face challenges with courage

Joey Scout Uniform

The uniform for Joey Scouts, whether boys or girls, is the same. A Joey Scout wears a uniform shirt and hat, Group scarf, and a woggle. Most of our Joeys wear a white leather one, as Pelican Point is a Sea Scout Group.

What Joey Scouts Do

Joey Scouts do a wide variety of things in their Section. Some of these include cutting, drawing, colouring, painting, pasting, making musical instruments and singing, flying kites and listening to stories. We go out on Adventures, explore science, look for birds, plant trees and play lots of games. And obviously, we’re Sea Scouts, so we take advantage of our location to play around beside the river!

Pelican Point Joey Scouts meet for 60 minutes weekly. We regularly have Outings (away from the hall) which last for a couple of hours, and most terms there is a Branch event with Joeys from all around the state.
