THIS year is a historical one for Fijian Scouts as it marks 100 years of their operation in the country, President and Chief Scout Ratu Epeli Nailatikau said during the Scouts annual general meeting at Government House yesterday.

In a government statement issued yesterday, Ratu Epeli reminded the country's largest Scouting body on the role it played in developing and guiding youths.

"We have come a long way and we are fortunate that our generation will witness and participate in the Fiji Centennial Jamboree at Queen Victoria School," Ratu Epeli said.

"I would like to acknowledge the contribution of all Scouts and other stakeholders, especially those citizens who have played an important part in fostering the Scout movement over the years."

In the statement the Fiji Scouts Association president Abhay Nand said they continued to examine ways in which improvements could have been effected and development taken forward for the benefit of young girls and boys.

"The Ministry of Education has supported Scouting in Fiji through promoting it in schools around the country, the Scout journey has been possible through the remarkable voluntary efforts of many ordinary citizens," Mr Nand said.

There are 8335 registered Scouts, including 482 female Scouts in Fiji.
