Attends Scouts WA Volunteer Conference

World Scouts Day saw the Governor attend and speak at the Scouts WA Volunteer Conference held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The Conference – One Family One Journey – is a once in a decade event for adult volunteer members, with over 800 from around WA attending over the two days.

As Patron of Scouts WA, the Governor addressed attendees, congratulating the volunteers on their dedication and efforts to foster life skills and continue to build their leadership experience through a variety of workshops at the conference.

“Our modern society presents significant challenges that appear to be increasing,” said the Governor.

“Our society might sometimes tend to lose touch of ‘community’ with a rapidly growing population and globalised world. This makes the Scouting movement all the more important in its mission that transcends all cultural, religious, racial, political, age and gender barriers.

Your leadership helps to underpin our society’s success. I thank you all for your initiative and encourage you to continue your work across our community.”

WA has just over 7,500 scouts, with nearly 40 million members worldwide.
