1st South Penrith was original formed in 1982 and held it’s first meetings at York Public School.
At the time we were supported by 1st Penrith Scout Group and used the 1st Penrith Scarf (Dark blue scarf with Red & White stripes). 1st Penrith Scout Group operated under the original NSW State Scarf from when it originally formed. It was later decided that we needed to properly form our own identity so a light blue stripe was added which originated from the colour of the school uniforms at York Public School.
Scout Hall – 70 Glenbrook St, Jamisontown.
Jamisontown Public School opened in 1982. The design plans show that the land between the Hall and Glenbrook St was originally going to contain a small shopping village which never eventuated.
The current Hall was built by the group using funds raised by the group including grants from Scouts Australia and Penrith Council.
In 2009 nominations were called for to design a group badge.
Originally Proposed Design.
Note the key local features, Nepean River, M4 Bridge and the Nepean Belle.
It should be noted that the Nepean Belle was also launched in 1982.
Due to the limitations of Embroidery this is the final design.
