We all have to follow rules in everyday life, and during all of our Scouting meetings a certain level of discipline is required.
During our group sessions our leaders all have whistles and when a leader raises an arm and blows their whistle, all Scouts are required to also raise an arm and be quiet. The session will be put on hold until everybody is quiet and listening, which proves a very good way of getting everyones attention.
If anyone is misbehaving then they will be asked to sit out for one minute, this will be increased further if repeated during a session.
The Scout leader in charge will have the final word on any discipline matters during a meeting, and if required will speak to the young persons parent or guardian if repeated misbehavior continues to disrupt our meetings.
The following rules were written by the young people themselves, with a few pointers from the leaders. All of the young people and leaders have agreed to follow them.
