    President attends Mahinda Scouts Group Centenary Celebrations

    October 23, 2014
    The Scouts Group of the Mahinda College Galle held its centenary celebrations under the patronage of President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
    The celebrations were held at the Samanala Grounds in Galle Wednesday (22) with the participation of around 1500 local and foreign scouts.  The Scouts Jamboree will be held for seven days effective from yesterday.
    President Rajapaksa was presented with a memento to mark the centenary celebrations.
    The First Galle Mahinda Scout Group was started in June 1914 with 30 members appointing Mr. F.G. Pearce as the Scout Master and Mr. A. Ginige as the assistant. The purpose of the strategy was to implement the Mission.  The mission of Scouting is to contribute to the education of young people, through a value system based on the Scout promise and Law, to help build a better world where people are self-fulfilled as individuals and play a constructive role in society.
