Toby Rule the lat­est Grey Wolf

Daily Mercury - - NEWS -

A YOUNG mem­ber of Mackay City Cen­tral Scout Group has been pre­sented with the high­est achieve­ment in cub scout­ing, the Grey Wolf Award.

Toby Rule’s Cub Scout leader De­bra Rutherford de­scribed Toby as a young man with vi­sion.

When Toby first joined Mackay City Cen­tral Cub Scout Pack in Fe­bru­ary, 2015, he boldly an­nounced “I’m go­ing to get my Grey Wolf ”

“And he had a plan to back it up,” Mrs Rutherford said.

This state­ment told her that Toby was a thinker who was go­ing to work smart, not hard, she said.

Through con­sis­tent ef­fort and per­sis­tence, Toby cre­ated his own path through the Cub Scout Award Scheme.

He com­pleted all three Boomerang Chal­lenge lev­els, while the Achieve­ment Badges he has earned across all ar­eas are fo­cused around his strengths and the ar­eas in which he ex­cels.

Toby’s gen­uine con­cern for his fel­low scouts and his de­vel­op­ing lead­er­ship skills saw him ap­pointed in the Sec­ond role and later a Sixer.

He par­tic­i­pated in a Cub Scout Lead­er­ship Course and has used th­ese skills to as­sist the lead­ers man­age the pack.

He has been a reg­u­lar at­tendee of and ac­tively par­tic­i­pated in pack, group and re­gion Cub Scout ac­tiv­i­ties and events.

Ms Rutherford said Toby has ful­filled his role as a youth leader to a very high stan­dard, set­ting a pos­i­tive ex­am­ple of re­spect and re­spon­si­bil­ity.

Dur­ing his time in the Cubs Scout Pack, Toby has demon­strated an un­der­stand­ing of the Cub Scout Law and Prom­ise. He was pre­sented a dio­rama of the Coun­cil Rock from the Rud­yard Ki­pling’s Jun­gle Book, as his re­source to the Cub Scout Pack.

He also headed up a group of four other scouts on a geo­caching ac­tiv­ity through Mackay Re­gional Botanic Gar­dens as his ram­ble.

Toby at­tended Cu­boree, a state-run camp, and it was one of his high­lights while in the Cub Scout Sec­tion. He cut a cel­e­bra­tory cake to mark the achieve­ment.
