Community Recognition Statement - Wakehurst Electorate Queen's Scout Award Recipients

Today I commend Pippa McKee from the 1st Collaroy Plateau Scout Group, and Alexandra White, Hunter Jackson, and Samuel Hosemans from the 1st Allambie Heights Scout Group—four young Venturer Scouts who were recently awarded the prestigious Queen's Scout Award.

This is the highest and most coveted award granted to Venturer Scouts aged between 14 and 17 across New South Wales. Each of those Scouts diligently worked towards this award by completing a variety of self-directed projects, developing outdoor skills in bushcraft, bushwalking and camping. Each of them planned and successfully completed a multi-day expedition, leading other young scouts, without direct adult supervision. What a phenomenal achievement for those kids. I am glad to see such dedicated young people so keenly interested in the beautiful bushland New South Wales has to offer. The skills they have gained in leadership and perseverance will most certainly serve them well in life. Well done!
