XXVII FINAL TALK

No attempt should be made at the close of the. Course to sum up on all the activities as in the previous review (" The Course Till Now ").

The idea should be placed in the minds of the boys that each man must sum up for himself perhaps under these heads :

Did I pull my weight in the Patrol ? "

Did I give a lead when it was required of me ?

Did I back up each Patrol Leader in turn ?

What have I learnt ? "

What did I most enjoy ?

How much of it can I pass on to my own Patrol ? How ? When ? Where ? "

" What subjects do I need to brush up ?

" Have I been pulling my weight in my own Court of Honor ? backing up my own Scouter ? giving my Patrol a proper lead ? What can I do from now on to improve my leadership

" Above all DO the Law and Promise mean anything more to me now than they did when I was just a Scout ? "

62

If certificates of attendance are to be presented, this should be done towards the end of this brief session. When a Course has been held on a District basis these could be presented by the D.C.

Finally, the Scouter in charge should give a final word of encouragement to the boys and try to send them away with their morale at its peak.

To avoid any anti climax, votes of thanks (for instance, to the Service Patrol or any other adults who have helped backstage) might take place at the tea table.

The formal proceedings of the Course should conclude with prayers, the united making of the Scout Promise, and the lowering of the flag.
