Some of our pupils arrived at school this Wednesday in their Beavers, Cubs and Brownie uniforms. It all made sense when Mrs Ramsden (who is also a Guide leader) and Mrs Alsop (one of our community governors and a Rainbow leader) took the assembly.
The children shared all about International Scouting Founder's Day and Lord Baden Powell. It is fascinating to live so close to where it all started with the first ever experimental camp being on Brownsea Island in 1907 (which of course is one of our School House's too!) All these years later the Scouting movement has grown and gone from strength to strength inspiring people from all over the world- currently 10 million Guides and 32 Million Scouts worldwide!
