The Oxford Intentional School Scout Group has brought great success since the last four years. Scout activities are performed both indoors and outdoors. At present,the largest Scout Group among all English Medium Schools is the Oxford International School Scout Group,which has more than one hundred students as active Scouts. At least three troop meetings are arranged for each batch ,where the Scout Leader trains each and every Scout and Rover Scout with significant non-profit contribution towards the Scout Organization.The weekly meeting is the glue that holds a Scout troop together. Well-planned meetings run by the troop’s Secretary and youth leaders are full of excitement and satisfaction. Meeting time devoted to learning new skills and organizing future campout, service projects, and other activities helps keeping interest levels and enthusiasm high. Patrols have opportunities at troop meetings to meet together, to learn as a team, and to share what they know. Whether they serve as the honor guard during an opening flag ceremony, as the presenters of a Scouting skill, or as the organizers of a game or activity, every patrol contributes to every troop meeting. A portion of a troop meeting is devoted to the demonstration and practice of skills that enhances Scouts’ ability to hike and camp, and to passes requirements for higher ranks. The Secretary of the Oxford International Scout Group guides troop’s youth leaders to take leading roles in planning, conducting, and assisting the success of troop meetings. Leadership is a skill that can be learned only by experience, and troop meetings serve as regular occasions for that to happen. Troop meetings offer ideal settings for patrols to take part in contests and competitions that test their expertise and their abilities to cooperate with one another.10987433_805524456196021_6931702196573344524_o11698683_894802717268194_5477888954961926297_n
