Farewell for young Scouts

FOUR young Scouts from the Fiji Scouts Association will have a chance to learn new leadership skills during their trip to Korea at the end of this month.

The four Scouts were officially farewelled by the senior members of the association during a scarfing ceremony at the association headquarters in Suva yesterday.

The four Scouts were selected out of the 8000 Scouts from around the country.

Association executive Joji Qaranivalu said the association officially scarfed the Scout representatives who were going to the Korea Patrol Leadership workshop where Scouts go on a leadership course.

"The uniqueness of this trip is that Scouts are going at a young age for leadership training and the association is very fortunate to be able to have their Scouts being part of the event," Mr Qaranivalu said.

Scout Rishal Narayan of Mulomulo Primary School said it was a great opportunity for him to represent Fiji in Korea this year.

"I hope to share with fellow Scouts any leadership knowledge that I learn from Korea and I will try my best to make the association proud," Mr Narayan said.
