AFTER 100 years of self reliance, the Fiji Scouts Association will be celebrating its 100th anniversary during the National Scouts Jamboree to be held at Queen Victoria School this month.
The jamboree coincides with the 100 centennial celebration and marks a milestone achievement for the association with 2000 Scouts expected to attend.
Scouts national executive commissioner Joji Qaranivalu said the establishment of the association in 1914 was a great accomplishment and to be able to continue its legacy of self reliance was wonderful.
Mr Qaranivalu said each of the 26 Scouts districts in the country would present items during the jamboree and the centennial celebration.
The event will run from August 18 to August 22 with fun activities. A march through the Capital City on August 21 is also part of the official program.
