Term 4 2015 just flew by for the Joey mob as we rounded out another fantastic scouting year with many badges earned, exciting activities and the Annual Joey Christmas concert.
Adventure Challenge badges completed.
The Joeys were very focused on completing their Adventure Challenge badges this term with each of the older joeys successfully completing theirs.
Paper planes ( Nukamura folds and spy gliders) were created, hover crafts built and tested and catapults found many a target.
Spooky Halloween extravaganza.
Halloween was celebrated in true Joey style with a mob night filled with costumes, traditional Halloween games, treasure hunts and woggle making. As you can see, the mob had a brilliant night and the smiles say it all.
Investiture of our newest Joey.
One of the highlights of Term 4 was the night we invested our newest Joey officially into the mob. Welcome Ben to your scouting adventure.
Annual Christmas Carols and end of year party.
Wolf and I were very proud of the Joeys when they performed the Christmas Carols that they had practised for their families on our last night for the year. There were a mix of traditional carols ( Jingles Bells, All I want for Christmas is my 2 front teeth) to classic Australian carols ( Give me a Joey among the Gum Trees ) and the all time favourites – 12 Days of Christmas and We wish you a Merry Christmas. And the parents weren’t left out. They all loved being cast as the reindeer in Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Santa also made an appearance just in time to give each of the mob a special Christmas present from Bagheera and Wolf along with their Christmas card and Scouts 2015 Christmas collector badge.
All of the mob were presented with the badges that they had earned this term – Buddy badges, Service badges and Adventure Challenge badges before we all shared a fantastic end of year supper. The Joeys then gave their families the gifts that they had made – a centerpiece for the Christmas table complete with tree decorations that they had also made.
Bravo to the mob for another amazing year and we will see you all again in 2016.
Yours in Scouting,
Bagheera and Wolf
