Scouts (Scouting Ireland)
In the Scout Troop, the Patrol should be the grouping for most activities, meetings and events. More and more should be done in Patrols and Patrols should be encouraged to organize separate activities, meetings and events on a regular basis. Each Scout will share their needs, their requirements and their suggestions with the Patrol, and the Patrol Leader will represent the views of his/her Patrol members at the Patrol Leaders Council. The Patrol Leaders Council will direct the Scout Troop and will help maintain a high standard of programme and good order in the Troop. Most activity is done in Patrols and each Patrol will make decisions for itself, review its own progress, and decide on its own future plans.
