Looking for a new activity this school year? Scouting offers fun, adventure and friendship for kids 5-26.
“Scout numbers are booming as parents look for healthy, social options for their children.”—Melbourne Leader, June 2016
Do you enjoy adventure, getting outside and meeting friendly kids who love new challenges? Scouts Victoria has grown over 50% in recent years, led by “a renaissance in the inner suburbs” like Carlton, North Carlton, Princes Hill, Parkville, CBD and Docklands.
The Carlton Scout Group offers Joey Scouts (for kids aged 5-7), Cubs (8-10), Scouts (11-14), Venturers (15-17), and Rovers (18-26). All sections welcome boys and girls. We also welcome volunteers ages 16 and up, and provide nationally-accredited training and credentials.
Our Group re-opened in 2014 and numbers have been growing steadily ever since. We have a very enthusiastic and friendly group.
Joeys meet on Tuesday, 5:15-6:15 pm. Cubs meet Tuesday, 6:30-8 pm. Scouts meet Thursday, 7-9 pm. Kids are welcome to ‘come and try’ on any meeting night, with no obligation. Parents and other adults are also welcome to get involved, and to participate either a little or a lot!
Venturers meet Tuesday evenings in Brunswick or on Thursday evenings in Alphington, and will start meeting in Carlton as soon as we have enough numbers. Rovers meet Monday 8-10 pm.
All sections except Venturers meet in the historic Scout Hall at 12 Shakespeare Street in North Carlton, between Drummond and Lygon Streets. The building is newly renovated and it’s beautiful!
Scouting is the largest youth organisation in Australia. Membership is for boys and girls of all backgrounds, ages 5-26. Scouting offers activities encouraging the physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual development of young people in a fully inclusive organization. All adults are trained and Police checked, and hold Working With Children cards.
For more information about Scouting, please contact David Hunt, Group Leader, on 0432 129 594 or at email@example.com.
Kensington Junior Basketball Club
Dear NMPS Students and Parents
I wanted to let you know that the 2016/17 Summer Season of basketball will commence in October 2016 in the Westgate Basketball Association.
The Kensington Basketball Club wanted to let you know and invite you to play in this upcoming season.
We are compiling sides now, and would welcome any boys who now have weekends free who would like to play basketball.
We currently have an U14 team, 3 x U16 teams and an U18 team playing in the Winter Season - finals start on Saturday! Depending on numbers, we may register additional teams in this coming season.
There currently is an U12 boys team playing at MSAC, so we would be happy to enter an U12 team in the Westgate competition if we got the required interest and support.
Games are played on a Saturday afternoon at Whitten Oval, Barkley Street, Footscray.
We train on Monday nights at the Flemington Primary School gym - 3 hourly sessions, depending on the age groups.
? 5.30pm - 6.30pm (has been the U14 team)
? 6.30pm - 7.30pm (two U16 teams)
? 7.30pm - 8.30pm (U16 team and U18 team)
If any girls are interested in playing, games are also held on Saturday, usually up to about 1pm. We'd be very keen to enter a girls' team in any level, again, if we got the necessary interest and support.
The season is interrupted from 10 December and restarts when school goes back in February, so school holidays aren't affected by playing commitments.
Age are defined by the age of a player at the 31st of December of the year the season ends in (ie end of 2017).
The age group is therefore defined by the age of the child at 31 December 2017.
For the 2016/17 Summer Season, the years of birth and the applicable age groups are:
? 2008 or 2009 - Under 10s
? 2006 or 2007 - Under 12s
? 2004 or 2005 - Under 14s
? 2002 or 2003 - Under 16s
? 2000 or 2001 - Under 18s
? 1998 or 1999 - Under 20s
Drop me a line if you are interested in participating or call me on 0414 292 470 if you'd like to discuss.
