On 17th October 2018, the Bibra Lake Scout Group celebrated one of our Scouts, Kai Mayers who completed all the requirements for the highest achievement in Scouts, the Australian Scout Medallion.
The Scouts and Leaders built a very special chariot for Kai to be carried by the other scouts to the ceremony area.
The ceremony was conducted by Gilligan (Douglas Latter), along with the other Scout Leaders including Heather (Heather Stanley), Turtle (Justin Bloomfield), Joker (Matthew Hamilton), Acorn (Andrew McPhail) and Dr Gumnut (Meredith Guthrie). Special guests included City of Cockburn Mayor Logan Howlett, Viper (Carl Daggers) Branch Commissioner of Scouts and local parliamentary ministers. Kai also invited Nutter who was a leader from his Jamboree 2016 Troop.
Our Venturer Leilani Gibson (Cub Leader Name: Rikki), has successfully completed and graduated from the Youth Leader Development Program (YLDP). This means that as soon as she turns 18 years old she will become a Adult Leader of the cubs section. Rikki has been working hard completing this training as a youth member, being an important part as a youth leader in the cubs section in addition to school commitments, Venturer activities and working.
Leilani is a perfect example of the leadership opportunities available in scouting and all the leaders at Bibra Lake Scout Group are very proud of her, most of all our Group Leader – Marie Gibson (Chil) who is also Leilani’s mum.
We congratulate Leilani “Rikki” on this huge achievement and look forward to her turning 18 years old and becoming a fully qualified Adult Leader.
