St Patrick's scout group took part in the ONE programme transition day yesterday. There was a great turn out from every section and there was also plenty of youth members present. Every leader and youth member got a preview of the new programme material and received training on its implementation. The venture programme looks very good and each venture will have their own filofax for carrying out their journey through the programme. The book will cost €16.99 and will available from the group in the coming weeks. Adventure skillls are also part of the new programme with nine skills with nine levels each being looked at. They include pioneering, hillwalking, emergencies, camping, sailing, paddling, rowing, backwoods and air activities. These awards will also be accompanied by skills books. The new programme will kick off in October after graduation.
