Welcome to the 2nd / 3rd Lindfield Scout Group Leader Profiles
Scout Leaders come from all walks of life, from parents of Scouts, to childhood Scouts, to people with no Scouting experience at all! People just like you.
Leaders need to be motivated individuals with a commitment to providing varied, exciting and dynamic programs for their Scout Group. Scouts Australia helps Leaders deliver on that commitment by providing training and support in all aspects of Scouting, youth leadership, programming and safety.
“It’s so rewarding to know that I’m making a positive
difference in the kids’ lives and helping them be their best.”
Leader roles vary through the Sections, as youth members take more responsibility for their activities as they progress in age.
Leaders accumulate the necessary skills through a mix of online and practical training. All our leaders are trained according to current child protection policies and have Working With Children clearances that include a NSW Police background audit. We take the protection of children’s welfare seriously.
Below are the diverse profiles of the 2nd and 3rd Lindfield leaders which forms our collective strength and friendship as a team. If you are interested in helping or one day contributing to Scouts as a leader, contact one of the leaders below or our group leader in charge.
Amanda was Scout leader for a number of years before her children moved on to Venturers and Amanda stepped into the Group leader role.
A marathon runner, a boater, and an avid observer of her sons maturing into fine young men (2 are now over 18, the 3rd is not far off either), Amanda has boundless enthusiasm for Scouting.
Amanda has made a specialty of her annual Scout Hike catering, supporting around 100 hungry leaders who are in turn helping run the activities during the weekend event. With food themes including Bollywood, Game of Thrones, Medieval, Amanda throws herself into the challenge and transforms herself, the food and the environment into the theme.
Tony squeezes in scouting in between his love for mountain biking and winter skiing. Like all spouses of Scout leaders, Tony’s wife Denise is a saint for her encouragement of Tony to apply so much of his available time into the leader role.
Tony and Denise’s three children are all enjoying Scouting. Their youngest son Bailey is in Scouts, middle son Christian is in Venturers and their eldest daughter Kate is in Rovers.
David is a fan of lightweight camping, is keen on kayaking and seems to have Tony’s addiction to mountain biking.
Greti grew up in Austria before falling for Rob and settling in Australia. With that sort of background, it will come as no surprise that their family love snow skiing, so much so they shifted base camp to live in Jindabyne for the 2018 season.
