Scouts Lend a Hand

“But the real way to get happiness is by giving out happiness to other people. Try and leave this world a little better than you found it and when your turn comes to die, you can die happy in feeling that at any rate you have not wasted your time but have done your best.” ― Robert Baden-Powell If any of you have been watching the news, you would have seen the wonderful work that the Scouts of 1st Steenberg Scouts are doing in the community.

1st Muizenberg Vikings Win Honor at Kontiki 2018

To those of you who don't know what Kontiki is, let me explain; Our scouter Wayne Pellew likes to say “Kontiki is the Olympics of scouting”. It is a scouting competition whereby troops build a raft using pioneering methods, construct a hut on top of the raft, the raft is then launched on to the water and 6 team members live on the raft for 24 hours.
