Achievement and Awards

We like to celebrate all kinds of success. One of the nice things about a website is that we can easily add lots of records and continue those celebrations.

Woodland Beavers

  • 2020 - Not Presented

  • 2019 - Ethan Barrett

Beaver of the year goes to Ethan Barrett 
He is always very polite, gets on with every activity with enthusiasm and encourages other beavers in the group. He is everything a Beaver should be and will grow into a fabulous Cub very well! 
Well done Ethan!
  • 2018 – Benjamin Stevenson

    Ben is always very polite and will get on with any task that is set him, he is a great team player and is happy to help out with anyone who needs a helping hand. It has been a pleasure having Ben in our group and we are going to miss him when he moves up to Cubs after the summer holidays.

  • 2017 – George Peddar

    George has really been a great child to have in beavers, he always has a smile on his face and ready to start any activity coming. At camp, he was really nervous about coming but as soon as he saw everything around him he got really excited and couldn’t wait for the camp to begin. He is always very polite and a very helpful child, we will miss him when he moves up to cubs, but I hope that he will enjoy himself and continue to grow in his scouting life.

  • 2016 – Jack Gorman

    Jack Gorman is always pleasant and polite he joins in with all activities and is always calm and thoughtful, we have never had to have a cross word with him in the 2 years he has been with us.

Riverbank Beavers

This colony opened in 2013

  • 2020 - Not Presented

  • 2019 - Holly Watson

  • 2018 – Jacob Edwards

    It’s not all about being the bravest or the strongest.
    It’s not always about winning.
    It’s not about being the most competitive or the loudest.
    It’s about building confidence, overcoming shyness, trying new things out of your comfort zone and making new friends.
    This is exactly what this Beaver has done.
    He is one of the quietest, the least competitive but he has overcome shyness, built confidence, tried new things become braver and chattier!
    This Beaver is definitely a winner in our eyes and we are delighted to award Jacob Edwards the Riverbank Beaver of the Year 2018.

  • 2017 – Sofia Palumbo

    This little lady gets stuck into everything, gives anything a go. Is always polite and incredibly helpful and is happy to volunteer for the clearing up duties where most will avoid like the plague!

  • 2016 – Martha Pearce

    She will not let anything stop her, always willing to get stuck in with the activities involved, always has a smile on her face and has recently started to open up a bit more and come out of her shell in meetings.

  • 2015 – Callum Lomas

    He is the very essence of what a Beaver should be. Always kind and helpful, throws himself into every task and does his best with a smile on his face. He has taken on the role of lodge leader and leads by example in true Scouting style.

He approaches tasks with enthusiasm, is always extremely polite, helpful and mature and has been a great example to his fellow Mountain Ridge Beavers. Well done George.

Seeonnee Cubs

  • 2018 - Jack Bunney
  • 2017 - Joseph Harris
Joseph has taken part in many Pack activities but has really stepped up since being a sixer

Waingunga Cubs

This pack opened in 2013
  • 2020 - Not Presented
  • 2019 - Leon Bealing

This Cub has had an impressive attendance record this year. He shows up to the weekly meeting always full of enthusiasm. He is kind to his fellow Cubs and often encourages other members when they are reluctant or nervous. I remember him saying to one Cub “You always have to try and give something a go. You won’t know if you like it or not if you don’t try”. Another occasion he showed empathy for a Cub who was scared of the dark on a night hike and stayed with his friend and supported him.

He is polite and respectful to all. He attended Twycross, Fox Coverts this year as well as canoeing and sailing and did all activities with his usual infectious enthusiasm.
 
What this boy doesn’t know about dinosaurs isn’t worth knowing and he taught the leaders a few facts while on camp.
 
All the leaders from Waingunga Cubs believe Leon Bealing should be the Cub of the Year.
  • 2018 - Sam Weatherill
Sam is always willing to participate, has a great attitude and is always well turned out.  Not only that, but he shows great leadership potential with his kind nature towards his fellow Cubs.
  • 2017 - Joshua Pearce
Joshua has been nominated again as he continues to be a first-class cub scout.  He takes part with enthusiasm and good cheer
  • 2016 - Joshua Pearce
Joshua who was invested into Waingunga whilst on a Victorian cakewalk has consistently shown scouting values and is developing good leadership skills. He always puts maximum effort into activities, is amongst the first to pitch into help and is often among the last to leave making sure that equipment is put away. Although we have a fantastic cub pack and all deserve recognition, The Waingunga team have all put Joshua Pearce forward for this award and all wholeheartedly believe he deserves the Waingunga cub of the year award.
  • 2015 - Patrick Boxall
I was able to rely on Patrick being a team captain and to help to organise others with consistent great behaviour.
  • 2014 - Abigail Atherton
Abigail has always been very dedicated to Cubs, taking part in all Cub pack meetings as well as all other activities offered to the Cubs. Her attendance, manners and lovely personality are outstanding and she is a great asset to Waingunga cubs. Abigail is a very determined and committed young girl who puts 100% into everything she does not just at Cubs but at home and school as well
  • 2013 - Harry Hart

Riki-Tikki-Tavi Cubs

  • 2019 - Jacob Stroud

You don’t have to be loud to stand out and shine & this cub certainly shines the brightest in 2019. He is quietly confident, eager and happy to please others, a good team player and valuable asset to Riki-Tikki-Tavi cubs. We would like to honour Jacob Stroud with this award.
