The Scout Law

The Scout Law - Our Values

The new Scout Law for Scouts Aotearoa launched at the start of Term 4, 2015.  This new law followed significant nationwide consultation, National Council approval in March 2015 and WOSM (the World Organisation of the Scout Movement) approval in July 2015.

The new Scout Law is a contemporary values model, comprised of three values. This applies to all sections and replaces the old Cub and Scout Law. Keas now have a Promise, Motto and a Law.

The new Scout Law expressed as Values is:

Have Respect 
For yourself and others
For the environment 
Do What is Right 
Be trustworthy and tolerant 
Have integrity 
Be Positive 
Accept challenges with courage
Be a friend to all 


Te Reo Maori translation:

Te Ture Scout (Our Scout Law)

He whai whakaaro
Ki a koe, ki tangata kē atu
Ki te taiao

Kia tika
Kia manawanui  
Kia ngākau pono.

Kia ngākau pai
Tū whitia te hopo
Hei hoa ki te katoa
