This year we are celebrating 100 years of Cubbing . In the build up of Akela 2016 we are interviewing Cubs and Alumni. We spoke to Aobakwe Motuba (10) from 1st Ikageng Cub Pack in the North West.
SSA: Why is Cubbing so much fun?
Cubbing is fun because I do lots of things with my friends in my Pack and we learn new things we didn’t know before.
SSA: What was your best experience with Cubs?
My best experience was when I made a kite and flew it in the sky, it was brilliant!
SSA: What is the weirdest thing you ate outdoors?
The weirdest thing I ate was apple tart. I didn’t know there was such a nice thing until I made it myself and it was so nice!
SSA: What was the toughest challenge at Cubs?
The toughest challenge was when I helped the senior Scouts with pioneering gadgets and the things they tied were hard for me to make.
SSA: What was the most amazing place you visited with Cubs?
The most amazing place I visited was the University Botanical Gardens and our local museum.
SSA: Can you name a few things you have learnt by being a Cub?
I learned about the jungle book, Cub promise and law, the grand howl and the reef knot.
SSA: What things have you done with Cubs to help people in your community?
I helped clean up a heritage site and we played heritage games.
SSA: What did you teach your mum that you learned at Cubs?
I taught my mum how to use matches and how to take care of our shoes.
SSA: What makes a good Akela?
Someone who loves, jokes and plays with us and always takes care of us.
SSA: Why is your Akela special?
He is special because he loves to play games with us and he teaches us about Cubbing.
Cubbing Rocks because … it makes us tough!
