My name is Sabastian and I love Cubs. I started Cubs as a Chum at 1st Muizenberg Sea Scouts in 2017 and am almost a Silver Wolf. I am working on my Outdoor Challenge Badge.
My brother, Ethan, is a Scout. I enjoy going to their fun days, like Kontiki, where I can watch him sail and take part in fun competitions. My favourite game is to play ‘Stalk the Lantern’ with the Scouts. The Scouts help us get to the lantern without getting spotted with a spot light.
I love earning Interest badges. I have so much fun with my Mom and learning how to make new things. I now have 22 Interest badges and have my Water Champ Badge. I have learnt to carry a first aid kit around with me. I made a promise the other day to use less plastic. Now when I go to the shops I say no to plastic bags.
Cubs has taught me the Cub promise, to always do my Best, so for Mandela Day I made pancakes for TEARS. My teacher at Kirstenhof Primary School, Mrs Coyne, is a volunteer at TEARS. They were having a Cake Sale. Mrs Coyne took us around and we played with the puppies.
I would like to help TEARS and to find homes for the dogs that are there. Anyone can volunteer their time. Playing with the puppies is so much fun! If anyone wants to volunteer some of their time or adopt a dog they know where to go 😊
Samantha Rouse (Mom’s) note
The last year and a half have been an amazing experience as newbies to Scouts. The amount of time volunteered by the Cub Leaders investing in our children, creating future leaders is priceless. Sabastian has grown even further into a selfless boy willing to help anyone in need. Whether its with a meal, helping with animal organisations, or fundraising for Scouts. So thank you to each and every one of you, Lisa Storey, Angela Lee-Wright, Martin Odd and Alys Willson-Heaton.
