assists and leads in Challenge Areas for for the Scout section. This one now completes the set of assisting and leading examples for all five sections.

Version 3 of the
Challenge Areas Fact Sheet has just been released on to the Scouts Australia Program Resources site (pr.scouts.com.au).
This edition tidies up some of the consistency of language in the program, and importantly, clarifies the intent of Challenge Areas and how to use them in your Unit and Patrol’s program cycles.
You can find this fact sheet on the
Weekly Program page, under the Challenge Areas tab.

The Programming Overview document has been updated based on recent feedback.
The content has been significantly reviewed and updated to bring it up to date with key messages about good programming using the four Challenge Areas.
It has also been updated with the new branding and to remove the “Pioneers” titles originally featured on this very early resource for the new program.
You can find version 2.0 in the
Weekly Program page, under the Programming tab.
Two Microsoft Excel documents have been created to support program planning for Units. One is The
Program Planning blank template, and the other is an example of a completed template.
These files are now
combined into a single zipped toolkit for download: Program Planning Toolkit (Interim).
(These are interim while we await the development of an online digital system for program planning and the new program).
.zip files can be “unzipped” on Windows and Mac computers without installing extra software.
Go to the
Weekly Program section, under the tab Programming, to find the toolkit.
