In mid November 2016, Mark and Art launched CB’s second scout troop. After a couple weeks of deliberation, the scouts decided on Tonga as their troop name. The name comes from a small Polynesian island nation, originally known as the Friendly Islands. The scouts chose the name themselves.
The troop is now run by Mike, Alberto and Andrew and meets on Thursday evenings at ACE School in Auderghem.
Our leadership team is entirely made up of volunteers! All adult leaders have a safeguarding check before starting and there is always at least one adult who is first aid qualified. Like many expats some of our leaders travel for work, so we try to have a large team.
You don’t need to have experience as training is available. It’s good fun working with the young people, and a way to make a difference for families and the wider community.
