( Years 3 – 6 at school)
The eight year old is an established individual, looking to try new adventures and activities. He is usually one of a group of friends, although many still like to explore some interests on their own. The Junior Section offers a lot of support and encourages this. This program is a full and varied one, typically lasting one and a half hours with a few if any individual activities lasting more than twenty minutes. The young boy has a world to discover, and early concentration on one small aspect can mean that much is missed in life. This is the time for a balanced all round program – which includes spiritual and social input, as well as physical and adventure activities.
( Alphas – Years 7 – 9 at school) ( Omegas – Years 10 – 12 at school )
Boys in their early teens are usually looking to define themselves as individuals – and this in a world that often tries to force them into a mould. For many this is a key age where habits and life styles are formed; these can be ones that are socially acceptable or those that can lead to major problems in later life. The Senior Section allows individuals to take part in the activities and the decisions. A chance to make ones own point, a chance also to remain one of a group. A chance to build friendships, a chance to make mistakes that will not be thrown back at them, where skilled staff support can present challenges fitted to the individual. Successfully achieving one challenge is great practice for the next. Brigade awards provide incentive and ensure progression at a rate suitable to age and growing physical strength; there are leadership opportunities to release abundant energies in purposeful ways.
