Code Of Conduct

Magill Scout Group is proud to provide a wide range of fun activities for our youth members and their families to support our goal of developing our young members to become constructive members of the community.

But to ensure our Scouting activities may be run safely, timely and with fun for all, we ask parents to observe and reinforce with their children a Code of Conduct which is outlined at the bottom of this page and supports the Promise and Law of Scouting.

All Joeys, Cubs and Scouts when invested into the Scout Movement undertake to live by their Promise and Law for the different sections as outlined below (you may need to remind your Joey, Cub or Scout of this):

To live by the Scout Law A Scout is considerate

To ensure our Scouting activities may be run safely, timely and with fun for all, we therefore ask parents to observe and reinforce with their children the following code of conduct:

  • Please respect our opening and closing ceremonies at every meeting.
  • Please respect our investiture ceremonies; these are important to all youth members.
  • Please help educate your children about the importance of respectful behaviour during these ceremonies.
  • Please hold your catch up chats with other parents outside the Scout Hall, in the kitchen or back room.
  • Please effectively manage siblings to ensure they are not an interruption or distraction to our Scouting activities and ceremonies.
  • Please effectively manage siblings within the Scout Hall and other activities sites for their own safety and the safety of our youth members.
  • Parent help is crucial to our Scout Group. Parents are encouraged to seek out things to help with from cleaning the kitchen or assisting with an activity. Check the full list on the entry area notice board.
  • Please remind your child to behave responsibly with their fellow Joeys, Cubs and Scouts to allow all youth members and Leaders enjoy our activities. Please also ensure your child is ready and willing to participate themselves.
  • Finally, a reminder that all our Leaders happily volunteer their time to Scouting and your child – please ensure your child is respectful and responsive to all Leaders at all times.
