Scouts in action against bullying

ANNUAL "Scouts in Action" month has been running throughout August and the topic for this year is "Breaking the Cycle – Bullying is not a part of Scouting."

New Norfolk Scouts have recently completed a series of bullying awareness activities, including a visit by guest speaker Cassie Whitehill from Chloe's Law. "Many scouts were inspired by Cassie's talk and are eager to take what they have learnt and spread awareness within their schools and amongst their peers," scout leader Jo-anne Pursell said.

Some scouts are hoping to have the "Say No To Bullying Day" observed in their schools on September 12 to raise money and to help create awareness.
