THREE Hamersley Scout Group members have received the highest honour possible for cub scouts.

The trio of 10-year-olds – Jasmine de Bomford, Ava Dransfield and Dylan Maybee – recently received their Grey Wolf badges.

Group leader Daryn Tisson said the cubs had been working for more than a year to complete the badge.

“They’ve done their boomerangs, they’ve had to do their proficiency badges and bushwalking and they’ve done a resource for the group which is the bird feeder now outside our hall,” he said.

Scouts Wanneroo District Commissioner Dee Jackman said it was the highest award a cub could earn and not every cub wanted to do them.

“The kids that go for these awards are really high achievers they like to do their best and they just love scouts,” she said.
