Scouts honour

Ana Madigibuli
Saturday, August 23, 2014

THE efforts, sacrifices and risks taken by Scouts who were part of the Scouts National Jamboree were worth it with the event being rated a great success this year.

The jamboree and centennial event was a time for Scouts from Fiji and the Pacific to remember scouters who have contributed their time and efforts for the past 100 years in bringing scouting to a recognisable level.

Over the years, the Fiji Scouting Association has seen itself grow and the association continues to mould thousands of Scouts to becoming great leaders and good citizens of the country.

Malakai Neori said he had been a Scout for the past five years and learned a lot from scouting.

"It is great to be part of the national jamboree and to celebrate the 100-year centennial for scouting in the country," Mr Neori said.
