Congratulations to Joseph Hunter, Year 9, who was presented with the Australian Scout Medallion -the top award in the Scout section in Australia. Along with 120 of his peers, Joseph was presented with his medallion on Saturday 14 November in a ceremony attended by hundreds of people from across Victoria.

Winning this award requires leadership, organisation, drive, determination, resilience and high‐level practical Scouting knowledge like camp craft and hiking.

Joseph is a member of the 1st Glen Iris Scout Group and will now enter the next youth section of Scouting, called Venturers.
