Parent Engagement

We value engaging with parents and hold an annual parent information night in March of each year.

This is the forum where we provide an update of scouting activities and ask for parent help on a specific range of tasks.

These range from a working bee on the hall, fundraising activities or help with specific badges where parents have skill set that matches the badge.

For example, a parent who is a music or singing teacher may help with a music badge, a keen fisherman may help with a fishing badge or a landscape designer may come and help with a gardening badge activity.

Fundraising is the one activity where parents can add most value and we offer a range of fundraising opportunities to be involved in, ranging from sausage sizzles through to Quiz nights and sponsorship opportunities. It is a fun way to become involved, meet other parents and be part of the scouting network.

Being on the management committee is another way to become involved and we meet bi-monthly in Subiaco on a Monday night at 7.30pm. The meetings last less than two hours. Treasurer, Secretary, Quartermasters, Fund Raising and many other committee positions are typical roles where parents can help if they have an interest or skill set that is a good match.

Supervising a large number of children requires the help of many adults. As a parent of a Cub, Scout, Venturer or even Rover, we would welcome you  to help out at least once per term on a Friday night for an activity, or at a camp or as a transport driver.

We also value the experience and input of grandparents.

Working with Children Card

All adults involved with the scouting movement require a Working With Children Card (WWC).

Any adults having direct contact with children on more than five occasions per year, or attending an overnight camp, require a WWC. Please use a pre-filled in form available from the 1st Subiaco membership officer and then submit, have your photo taken and pay at any post office. The card costs $10 and is valid for three years. The $10 is fully refunded by 1st Subiaco.
