Scout Law

Scout Law and Kea Promise

The Law and Promise are values every member of Scouting agrees to live by in everything we do. This means all the time, even if we are at home or school

Our Scout Law

Te Ture Scout

Our Scout Law is our contemporary values model, made up of three values:

Have Respect

He Whai Whakaaro

For yourself and others

Ki a koe, ki tan gata kē atu

For the environment

Ki te taiao

Do What is Right

Kia Tika

Be trustworthy and tolerant

Kia ngākau pono

Have integrity

Kia manawanui

Be Positive

Kia Ngākau Pai

Accept challenges with courage

Tū whitia te hopo

Be a friend to all

Hei hoa ki te katoa


Kaitiakitanga is the Te Reo Māori understanding that we are a part of the natural world, not separate from it, and it is our responsibility to act as guardians of our environment

We do this by Having Respect for the Environment - the Sky, the Sea, and the Land, and Doing what is Right by looking after, protecting and cherishing it

Whenever we do things, in Scouting, and the rest of our lives, we should always think about how we are impacting the world around us
