An update from Troop 2
What do you really know about yourself? What do you really know about other people? What makes you the same? What makes you different? What kind of person are you now? What kind of person would you like to become? What sort of things impact on how you think and what you believe? Are you the same as everyone else from your village, town or country? Why do we form groups and what makes a group? What do we think of people from other groups? What kind of relationships do you have with other people and why are they important to you?
Troop 2 are today reflecting on these and other issues and the impact they have on our day to day life in the People Module. Through crafts, mimes, drama and theatre Troop 2 has today the opportunity to make their own cultures and find out more about their hopes, dreams and aspirations. The People module also includes a Garden of Reflection for scouts to make the best out of that which they experienced during the morning.
But there's something even more special about today! The troop has been divided into different patrols containing a scout from each country. The language barrier is no barrier at all; through spontaneous translation, these scouts are still managing to communicate! What better way by which to experience the true meaning of People; of differences and similarities?
