BP Sunday 2011

On 20 February, Cubs and Scouts from the various scout groups in our District celebrated Baden Powells birthday at a special Scouting service held in the grounds of the 1st Hellenic Scout Group.

After the service the Cubs and Scouts from each group were split into teams of 5 members so that they could all participate in the fun events that were built by the 1st Hellenic Scouts.

Below are a few of some photos taken at the service and at the fun events.

About our Badge

Our badge (as indicated above) represents the borders of our District.

The eastern border starts at Isando Road (between suburbs of Isando & Croydon of Kempton Park - a town near the Johannesburg International Airport) and extends to the western border of Troyeville (a suburb in Johannesburg). This is represented by the aeroplane symbol.

Our northern border is the ESKOM power lines that run along the R25 (Modderfontein road) bordering Edenvale and extends to the south to the R29 (Main Reef road). This is represented by the power line pylon.

As our western and southern borders are hills of the suburbs of Sunnyridge & Kensington / Bez Valley, these are represented by the two hill symbols.

The colour of the badge is based on the same colours as used in the District Scarf which is only worn by our District Staff members. The colours of our scarf is orange and black. The border is black. A District badge is sewn on the apex.

About North Rand Scouting District

The North Rand Scout District consists of 9 Scout Groups.

The District is very fortunate to have 3 sections of Scouting (i.e. Air. Land and Sea ).

Our Scout Groups are thus able to offer Cubs, Scouts and Rovers a wide selection of outdoor activities.

Due to the size of our District, each Scout Group is able to cater for the immediate needs of their surrounding areas.

The Scout Groups in the District set a high standard in Scouting and their performance is best evaluated by the achievements of their Cubs, Scouts and Rovers.

These include Leaping Wolf, Springbok Scout and BP Scout Awards, Star Troop & Star Pack Awards as well as other awards obtained from a number of other Scouting events in which they have participated.
