Throwback Thursday This week’s throwback Thursday features our own Cub Scout Leader Chris ‘Baloo’ Wait as a Cub Scout in 1994. Seeing him as an eight-year-old is amazing in itself. But take a look at his scarf! Although 1st Prague Scout Group was only formed in 2014 and introduced a new group scarf at that time, Baloo who joined Prague Scouts in 2018, can be seen wearing the exact same scarf from his former UK Scout Group all those years ago. A really spooky coincidence! Did you know our group scarf colours have a meaning? The red, white and blue

Thanks go to Oliver who attended the official Remembrance Sunday Ceremony at Prague's Olšany Cemetery with his dad, Cub Scout Leader Chris (Baloo) to represent 1st Prague Scout Group.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Congratulations to Joe Biden President-Elect of the USA.

Did you know he was a Scout?

Mr Biden said - Scouting teaches young people “many valuable life lessons.” Scouts “acquire numerous important skills, adopt guiding principles, and forge new and lasting friendships.”

Tomorrow is Remembrance Sunday. Our group will normally be attending the ceremony in Prague's Olšany Cemetery. This year our group won’t be able to take part, as we normally do, but we will be represented in a personal capacity by our Cub Scout Leader Chris (Baloo) and his son Oliver. This year's wreath was made by two of our Scouts Noa and Alexandra, helped by Assistant Group Scout Leader, Jenny. (see picture). The commemoration is for those men and women who gave their lives in conflicts around the world. As many of you know the Royal British Legion uses this

This year our group won’t be able to take part, as we normally do, at the Remembrance Sunday commemoration in Prague on 8th November. The commemoration is for those men and women who gave their lives in conflicts around the world. We hope to be able to present a wreath, at some point on that Sunday, but probably not with more than one or two of us at most. As many of you know the Royal British Legion uses this time to collect money to help its charity work and many wear a poppy to show their support. Their welfare

As many of you will probably know our group is now unable to meet face to face due to the current state of emergency here in The Czech Republic. We hope that this will be only temporary and we will be able to meet together again soon.

In the meantime, our group will go online and provide some fun and interesting activities. Your section leaders will be contacting you shortly to let you know when your section will begin online and how to join in.

This evening was a very important day for all of us. 3 children were invested to become Beavers officially! All new Beavers could say the scout promise beautifully! We also decided lodges and nominated Lodge leaders and Assistant Lodge Leaders. We have 3 lodges; Mouse, Rabbit and Squirrel. Also, some of our Beavers received "join in award". It was another fun and memorable session! Well done Beavers!

We are looking for a new group treasurer. Our current group treasurer Jana has decided to step down at the end of the year after 3 years. We would like to thank her so much for all the hard work she has put into organising our finances so well. We are now looking for one or possibly two volunteers to take on the role, with a view to work with Jana to handover the finances of the group. You don’t need to be an expert in finance but need some knowledge of spreadsheets and accounting would be useful. Full training

Beavers went to the treasure hunt to learn the green cross code. Now all the Beavers can cross the road safely. Also, they found the clues to make a word to get the hidden treasure. They followed the map and found the numbers on the lamp pole and characters etc. They enjoyed the beginning of the autumn in the park. The answer word to get the treasure was "LOVE". They collected all and found the treasure. It was another fun day. Well done Beavers!

Beavers had lots of exercises to learn how to be healthy. At first, they checked the heart rate before the exercise. Beavers did "Egg & Spoon race", "Obstacle Course" and "wheelbarrow race". It was fun! Well done Beavers!!

At the end of our session, our Beaver's feedback for the Online session was "They enjoyed EVERYTHING". Due to the worldwide pandemic half of our term, we needed to meet online. No matter what is happening in our world we will not stop scouting! There was a total of 12 great indoor sessions with our Beavers. Believe it or not, we could see some Beavers progress during these sessions. That little progress made us all happy and gave us the motivation to deliver more high-quality and fun sessions as well as a great influence for our Beavers. It was so

Congratulations to Chris Wait (Baloo) - Cub Scout Leader and Alastair Hammond - Explorer Scout Leader & Assistant Group Scout Leader in being awarded the District Commissioners Commendations for their work in the Group by our outgoing DC Dominic Afriat. Chris was instrumental in developing the new improved Cub Pack since its move to Park Lane School in September last year and has seen significant growth in that section as a result. He also represented British Scouting Overseas at the World Scout Jamboree in the USA last year, giving up 3 weeks of his holidays to support young people there.

The Beavers enjoyed the camp songs to start our last session. Because of our last online session, some Beavers dressed up and make a cook hairstyle and bringing their favourite toy today. We discussed what we are going to do when we are permitted to meet again. There were many exciting ideas from the Beavers! Our final skill learning session was about "Basic Compass and Map reading" by Spike. We are ready to go for a Hike now! We enjoyed the Dr Suess story to end our final online session! Well Done Beavers!

The Beavers learned about the Space. We talked about the different stars in the sky, constellation, planets, and the latest news about the Space X project from NASA! Most of the Beavers want to go to Mars. Some of them want to go to Saturn. It could be possible near future! At the end of the session, one Beaver volunteered to read a story for us. He read it beautifully and showed us a picture just like the leader has been doing during this online session! We are all impressed! It was another fun and amazing session! Well done Beavers!

Today we tackled the last 2 elements of the Global Issue Badge. The Beavers learned about the importance of the water, problems of getting clean water in different countries and how we make the water filter to make clean water! Also, they learned about Fairtrade products how we can support farmers in the world. They also demonstrated the "Reef knots" very nicely as a homework! Well done Beavers! Happy10th Online session!!

The Beavers practised knots. They learned how to use the rope safely first which is very important as a scout. They practised "Reef knot" and others. Bagheera taught them clearly so that Beavers could do them on their own! It was another fun and knowledgeable session! Well done, Beavers!

Worthing Scouts in West Sussex UK have been putting bears with a scarf in their windows for young people to spot out on a walk, during the Coronavirus lockdown there. We were sent this picture by one of our groups friends from Worthing Harvey Cranford who was in Prague a few years ago doing his Explorer Belt. Harvey said 'I have a fair few scarfs, I change mine every week. This week Ivy the Elephant is representing our overseas cousins!'. Look whose scarf he chose this week! 🙂 tiny.cc/4t4xnz #internationalfriends
