A Katanning boy has received the highest honour possible for a Cub Scout. Zavier Potter, 10, is only the third Cub Scout in the history of the Katanning Scout Group to receive the Grey Wolf Award, following in the footsteps of two Scouts who received the same honour in 2013 and 2021. Friends, family and fellow scouts gathered at Piesse Park on April 5 to celebrate the achievement, where Zavier received his badge. Cub Scouts include children aged 8-10. They must fulfil several requirements to become eligible for the award, including obtaining all three milestone badges, completing leadership training, and organising, planning and leading an adventurous journey. 1st Katanning Scout Group Leader Hilary Harris told the gathering of some of the activities Zavier had undertaken to achieve his award. “This included building a model aeroplane for his flight badge, writing a piece of military historical fiction based on the HMS Dreadnought for the arts and literature badge, and the full restoration of a 1926 Singer treadle sewing machine for his STEM badge,” she said. “That took five months and became a viral internet sensation.” Ms Harris said for his adventurous journey Zavier organised and led a return trip bike hike from Woodanilling to King Rock Nature Reserve, a distance of 30km. “This involved contacting the Shire, doing the risk assessment, arranging a support vehicle and then doing the trip,” she said. “The big hill was conquered, and the day was a success.” It is the second major scouting award for Zavier after he received the Promise Challenge as a Joey Scout, the top award for scouts aged 6-7.
