Pathfinder Beavers: The new Beaver Colony had a great welcome session and we chose our name! Playing games, getting to know each other, building towers and Beaver dam dens. The kids were amazing! Thank you to all who helped!
Named after the first satellite to chart the solar system – going to Mars and beyond. Finding a path where none had been before , sending pictures back to Earth of things no-one had seen or experienced before, broadening our understanding and knowledge of the solar system and the space outside our world.
This name represents the start of the journey the Beavers take through Scouting, exploring their unknown and learning new and exciting things along the way and broadening their horizons in so many ways.
Our name draws of the ties Ottery St Mary has through the King’s School, being one of only two schools in the UK who have made direct contact with the International Space Station.
