Fiona Boreham – Bundabun
Joey Scout Leader
- Time in Scouting 2 Years
Past Scouting experiences: : I have 2 children who were Cubs / Scouts at Torquay and I joined them on hikes and camps as a parent helper / first aid during there time with the group,enjoying every minute of it.
Reason for joining Scouting: I could see the need for the younger less sporty kids in our area to be active and involved in a community group and to have the opportunity to have fun with their peers in a supported environment that can help them grow.
Best memory in Scouting: Seeing the Joeys achieve the small things like blowing up a balloon or getting their hands dirty when their not sure about textures it’s the small achievements and happy little faces that keep me coming back for more.
Your 3 words to describe Scouting: Growth , challenging and rewarding.
- External qualifications relevant to Scouting: I have been working with children for the past 16 years as a swimming instructor, private nanny, and as a volunteer for surf lifesaving in the nipper program as 2IC, water safety coordinator and youth representative on the committee. I currently work casually as an integration aid in primary schools and hold a current Cert III in Education Support. During these roles I have attended a camp or two and also enjoy camping, bushwalking canoeing, etc with my family.
Doesn’t like: hearing “I can’t do it !”…It is “I can’t do it yet”
Most likely to be heard saying: “KOOOOWEEE”
3 things you would take with you to a deserted island: My husband,a knife and some really cool sunglasses
Most looking forward to: Traveling with my family and continuing my journey in Scouts.
