The first seminar of its kind for all adult leaders in the Association was an astounding success. With over 170 leaders attending the event and twenty topics discussed in ten groups over six sessions... everybody had the opportunity to share their views.
The seminar was opened with speeches by the Chief Scout and the Chief Commissioner and both the Minister for Education and the Opposition spokesman for Education made interventions welcoming the leaders present and thanking them for their service.

The event then kicked into high gear with a presentation by three scouts who acted out their thoughts about scouting to the leaders. Tomaz Strajner, a representative from the European Scout Region then took the floor to share the latest scouting trends in Europe and how the ESR is restructuring to tackle the new challenges ahead. The first part of the seminar ended with a presentation about the Kandersteg International Scout Centre by Adam, a Maltese scout who spent most of last year working as part of the staff team there. Adam drew parallels between the scouting he encountered abroad and how it compares with us.

The seminar then entered into the business stage when participants split into ten groups discussing a total of twenty topics spread over six 30-minute sessions with a lunchbreak in between. Some of the topics like co-ed and uniforms were quite heated and the eighteen rapporteurs took plenty of notes to record all the points and suggestions by the leaders.

The seminar ended with an interesting twist. The names of five lucky participants were drawn in a lottery and they each won two free flights courtesy of Air Malta. Another two participants won a mobile phone each courtesy of Vodafone. Each participant was given a lanyard and windscreen sunshade courtesy of Go.
