St Patrick’s Day

Dear Parents

We will once again be taking part in the St Patrick’s Day Parade in Limerick on March 17th. This year in particular, we are asking for as many members of the Group as possible to join us on the day so we can show the community that we are still going strong.

We will be meeting at 11am outside Sarsfield Barrack’s on Lord Edward Street. Full and correct uniform is required

We will be group 43 in the parade. We would ask all parents to meet us promptly after the parade at City Hall at Merchant’s Quay so that our Scouters are not left waiting.

Yours in Scouting

Beaver Adventure Skills update

Dear parents,

Hillwalking 1
Emergencies 1

On Monday 11th of March, your child will be undertaking an assessment in Hillwalking stage 1 and Emergencies stage 1. On successful completion of the assessment, the beaver will be then be entitled to Hillwalking badge 1 and Emergencies badge 1.

We have included the following documentation below so that you can help your child prepare for these assessments. A little bit each night would help ensure that they are ready this and help them progress to the next stage of their journey within Scouting.
