The journey to attain the President’s Scout Award consisted of many components, such as community service, and many courses that put our Venture Scouts’ skills to the test. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic further complicated the process of obtaining the award. However, despite the setbacks, our Venture Scouts displayed resilience and persevered to obtain the award, and to put Catholic High Scout Group at the top.
In the words of the Scout Hymn,
“To be the best, the best that I can be!”
Congratulations to the 7 Venture Scouts for their outstanding achievement and they will continue to serve in Catholic High Scout Group as role models and mentors to their juniors.
