New Scout Promise and Law!

After much deliberation the following scout promise and law have been approved by the National Council of Scouts Australia.

Each member will choose from two Promise options. Both options have the support of the World Organisation of the Scout Movement.

Each member will now choose from the following versions of our Promise;

On my honour, I promise
To do my best,
To be true to my spiritual beliefs,
To contribute to my community and our world,
To help other people,
And to live by the Scout Law


On my honour
I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to my God, and
To the Queen of Australia
To help other people,
And to live by the Scout Law
We now have one Law to be used across all five Sections:

Be Respectful

  • Be friendly and considerate
  • Care for others and the environment

Do What is Right

  • Be trustworthy, honest and fair
  • Use resources wisely

Believe in Myself

  • Learn from my experiences
  • Face challenges with courage

Resources giving a fuller explanation of the wording and how it will be incorporated into the Scouting program, will be available to download from the Youth Program Review website in September 2017. More information regarding the resources will be disseminated through Scouts Australia’s communication channels.
