Year 9 pupil Kacper has received glowing reports after achieving his Gold Scout Chief award.
Kacper has been a member of Preston Central Scout Group for 10 years.

He had to complete various challenges to reach gold status and was promoted to Explorer/Young Leader.

These challenges included a ten-hour hike, learning about culture and heritage, learning First Aid, cooking in the wild and more.

Kacper said: “I enjoyed completing the activities, especially kayaking. Gold is the highest you can achieve and it will also be helpful on my CV.

“I have moved to Young Leader now so I am instructing younger children. I have learned skills for life."

Preston Central Scout’s Lojska said: “Kacper’s journey from a dedicated scout to an exemplary Young Leader is inspiring. His unwavering commitment, enthusiasm and willingness to learn have left a lasting impression on the scout group.

“As a scout, Kacper embodied the core values of scouting, displaying dedication, teamwork and personal growth.

“Kacper achieved the highest award in the scout section, the Chief Scout Gold Award.

“This involved earning nine challenge badges, including planning and executing a two-day expedition, honing his camp craft and demonstrating team work.

“Once Kacper left the scout section, he became a Young Leader. Kacper confidently assumed various leadership roles, guiding and motivating younger scouts and cubs.

“His ability to lead by example and tackle challenges head-on has set him apart as a role model for his peers.”

Jordan, from Preston Central Scouts, added: “Kacper has been fantastic since joining us as a Young Leader in Cubs last year. He has jumped right in, helping us every week, leading games and activities and supporting us on weekend events such as camps.”
