Why!? ..because we are very proud to have bashed out a quadruple badge-busting achievement ...that's why!
(in fact the lady who we order the badges asked us "ARE YOU SURE you need level 4"!)??
This means we've skipped through badges 1,2 & 3 ..& gone straight to 4 ...WOWSERS!
We had numerous qualified (parent) Nurses helping us through it, & the children acted out various scenarios with a proper life saving dummy working through in small groups.
The badges are special because this colour badge can move (more sewing) from whenever it is attained through Beavers, cubs & scouts & is replaced by the highest your child achieves (others being relegated to a camp blanket / poncho).
No mean feat! ..We are all VERY proud of you, it's a serious subject & a hard badge to get, just remember to practise if & when you can still with an adult present) as it'll need a few good go's to really sink in & become one of the most valuable life skills you may ever use!
& not forgetting a big "Thank you" to Parent nurses Julie & Paul who helped out along the way.
Now then, why not practise for another badge!? ..the requirements of which need you to sew your own badge on your uniform!? ..hmm what'dya mean your a bit tired after all that badgework & it's best left to a grown-up!? ....tut-tut ;)
Well Done Everyone!
