Welcome to the Seniors Section!

Who is it for?

This is for Lads aged between 16 and 19

When do we meet?

We meet every Wednesday School night from 7:15 but you can come 10-15 minutes before to catch up with your mates.

What do we learn about?

Discover is about more than gaining badges and provides you with the means to plan a whole programmed whether or not your young people decide to try to gain an award. It's divided into three programmed zones (each sub-divided into various topics) and a balanced programmed draws content from each. Zones are the basic structure of the Discover programmed and help group topics together, as well as provide variety in the programmed.

The Main zones are listed below:

Community

This zone gives opportunity to learn about and make a difference to the world around us.

Recreation

This zone gives opportunity to be adventurous and develop confidence through an active and healthy lifestyle.

Skills

This zone gives opportunity to learn new skills and display creativity.

There are two further zones entitled Faith and Extras. These complement the three programmed zones and provide additional materials for devotions and lots more.



You can earn the two highest badges in this section such as;

1. Presidents Badge

  • Complete a Christian faith development course

  • Have good attendance for one session

  • Be recommended by the company captain

  • Participate in a non-residential teamwork skills experience



2. Queens Badge

Queen's Badge

The Queen's Badge is the highest award that may be gained by a member of The Boys' Brigade. It's a real opportunity; it aims to challenge and equip the individual, provide new opportunities and expand horizons while remaining accessible to young people of all abilities.

A young person wishing to work towards their Queen's Badge must first have completed their President's Badge. The Queen's Badge offers the chance to engage with the local community, take on responsibility, set personal goals, build self confidence and experience a sense of achievement.
