Short Description:

I am a 51 year old mother of three and my two sons Daniel and Jonathan both formed part of the Fgura Scout Group. My education started off at St Francis School/Cospicua, then th e Govt Primary & Secondary Schools/Cospicua up till Form3 and then Form4 and 5 at M\\\\\\\'Assumpta Girls\\\\\\\' Secondary School/Hamrun. Then I completed a two year course at the G F Abela Junior College and when I was about to decide whether to follow a course at University, I found a job at AirMalta as a secretary in the Finance Department; a post which I occupied from 1980-1990. Then I got married in April 1990 and the rest is history :) I think my interest in becoming a leader stems from the fact that I always admired what the scouts stood for and always felt the urge in me to one point I wanted to become a teacher and I am fulfilling this wish with the cub scouts...hope I am succeeding :)

Scouting Experience:

My involvement in the Group started off by being a Secretary of the Group Council after an appeal made by the then GSL Mr Robert Gonzi during an AGM. This was from 2003 to 2010. In fact from 2007 (when I was invested as a leader) to 2010 I occupied two posts in the Group-that of secretary of the group council and ACSL in the pack section. When the workload as a leader was increasing, I renounced my post as secretary and remained as leader. In October 2013 I was appointed as Cub Scout Leader.
