FOREST View Primary School grade five pupil Keenan Maré recently planted a tree which he had donated to the school as part of a “Greening the Community” activity. Keenan, who is a Cub at First Hillcrest, is attempting the Leaping Wolf Challenge with this task being one of the activities he needed to complete. The Leaping Wolf challenge is the highest award a Cub can earn and is the equivalent of the Springbok Scout — the pinnacle achievement in the Scouting program. The Cub is given a year in which to complete the challenge, which requires a number of projects, tasks and badges be completed or achieved. These need to be done before the Cub turns 11 and moves up to the Scout group. Keenan decided to plant a flat crown tree as it is indigenous to South Africa and the school recently lost one during a storm.

Keenan’s grade five class were allowed to watch the planting take place and were told a little about Cubs and the Leaping Wolf challenge.
