Training Feedback


Greetings Scouts,

The Rovers have recently come up with a survey in which you can use to highlight any concerns/grievances  regarding your training experience. The data gathered from these surveys will no doubt be essential in improving the quality of training in the future. Staff-in-Confidence will be exercised with regards to your responses so you can be assured of your anonymity. We take your responses very seriously and if the response is good, we will conduct such surveys more frequently. These surveys are not meant to implicate anyone in particular but rather act as an outlet for constructive criticism, so please be as impartial and fair.
If you have any further queries please feel free to contact any of your fellow PLs.

Scout Training Schedule for June Holidays

Dear Scouts,

The next major event for the scouts will be our Annual Campfire, which will be held on the 22nd July 2017. Our troop will be inviting scouts from other schools to our campfire, and your son / ward will be required to plan out a programme for them, and prepare the necessary logistics for the campfire. This is usually the time for the scouts to showcase their talents, and display the skills they have learnt during their scouting journey in St. Gabriel’s. 

The training sessions in June and July will be focused primarily on the preparation for the campfire. The sessions are mostly held in the afternoon, to facilitate the attendance of the venture / rover scouts who have graduated in previous years.
