Although Scouting started at RBAI in 1926, Cub Scouting started at Inchmarlo in 2019 with Beaver Scouting following a year later in 2020. Despite the pandemic, both Sections have maintained a strong membership and active programme for the boys of the school.
The Beaver Colony is open to pupils in P2, P3 and P4 and meets from 4 to 5 pm on Thursday afternoons in term time. The Cub Pack is open to pupils in P5, P6 and P7 and meets from 5 to 6 pm on Thursday afternoons in term time. The boys take part in fun and adventurous activities that enable them to earn badges and awards as well as develop into people of strong character.
The Purpose of Scouting
Scouting exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.
The Values of Scouting
As Scouts we are guided by these values:
Integrity – We act with integrity; we are honest, trustworthy, and loyal.
Respect – We have self-respect and respect for others.
Care – We support others and take care of the world in which we live.
Belief – We explore our faiths, beliefs, and attitudes.
Co-operation – We make a positive difference; we co-operate with others and make friends.
The Scout Method
Scouting takes place when young people, in partnership with adults, work together based on the values of Scouting and:
• enjoy what they are doing and have fun
• take part in activities indoors and outdoors
• learn by doing
• share in spiritual reflection
• take responsibility and make choices
• undertake new and challenging activities
• make and live by their Promise.
Scouting is open to people of all faiths and of none therefore alternative wording can be used to best reflects members’ own beliefs, reflecting the diversity of our UK Scout community, e.g., country can be used for God or King.
