Inter Patrol Badge Competition Gallery

Greeting Scouts,

Thank you all for the overwhelming response for the Inter Patrol Badge Competition! Out of SIX total patrols, we've only received not one, not two, but THREE submissions! That's 200% more entries than what we were initially expecting!

Ok but seriously, due to the entry count being lower than expected, the Rovers have no choice but to amend the prize allocation. Instead of having the Top 3 awards, it has now been changed to 1st place (1) & Runner-ups (2). Additionally, the top entry will be adapted into a unique campfire souvenir given out to all attendees and the patrol included.

Below are the entries your fellow scouts have submitted to us.

Dove - "A Night to Remember"

Shark - "CRUX"

Eagle - "CRUX"

Thank you once again for your active participation and we hope this experience has bonded you closer with your fellow Patrol Members!

Individual Patrol Leaders will be contacted separately regarding the acquisition of their Patrol's bounty.

RE: Training Feedback


Greeting Scouts, 

The Rovers would like to thank you for your time and patience in participating in our new appraisal initiative.  The feedback we've received from you has been plentiful and has given us new insights into the leadership / training you've been familiar with. Rest assured Staff-in-confidence will be maintained as we take the necessary follow-up steps into improving the system. 

  Rome wasn't built in a day. 

We hope you will be patient with us as we implement new measures related to the training systems currently in place with your help. 

With that, we wish you all the best and happy training!

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.
