St Georges Day

St George is the patron saint of Scouting. Every year on the 23rd April, Rovers lead the rest of the NSW Scouting community in remembering the legacy of St George.

Traditionally, a church service is held at St James Cathedral in Sydney, however on the odd occasion that the church is unavailable, a traditional “Scouts Own” is held in neighbouring Hyde Park.

As part of the traditional service, each participating Rover Crew is invited to bring their Crew Flag to be blessed in anticipation of a successful year of Rovering.
