A Scout Promise and Law for All Australians

posted 28 Nov 2017, 04:29 by Andrew Yeaman

After three years of planning, research and consultation, on Saturday the 22nd July 2017 the National Council of Scouts Australia endorsed the new Australian Scout Promise and the Australian Scout Law.

Scouts Australia now has one Promise, with two versions. Following the World Organisation of the Scout Movement philosophy of one developmental program from ages 6 to 26 years, the Promise will be used across all five of our Sections. As Australia’s young people become more diverse, from a multitude of backgrounds and beliefs, we now have a Promise they can make with conviction, and a Law they can easily understand and follow.

Each member will choose from one of the following two Promise options. Both options have the support of the World Organisation of the Scout Movement.

The Scout Promise

On my honour, I promise  
To do my best,
To be true to my spiritual beliefs,
To contribute to my community and our world,
To help other people,
And to live by the Scout Law
OROn my honour
I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to my God, and
To the Queen of Australia,
To help other people, and
To the live by the Scout Law

We now have one Law to be used across all five Sections:

The Scout Law
  • Be Respectful
    • Be friendly and considerate
    • Care for others and the environment
  • Do What is Right
    • Be trustworthy, honest and fair
    • Use resources wisely
  • Believe in Myself
    • Learn from my experiences
    • Face challenges with courage
