For the second year in a row, Adam Visser of form 9E has won First Prize at the Kalamunda Show for his knotting, this time a multicoloured paracord survival bracelet.
This contributed to a win for the 1st Kalamunda Scouts, comprised largely of Mazenod boys, once again winning the Craft Shield, which will be awarded to them by the Kalamunda Agricultural Society presentation evening at the Jack Healey Centre.
The skill involved in knotting this bracelet is complex and demands a lot of time and concentration and we congratulate Adam on the quality of his finished product. The tying of knots is an important part of the Scouting program and helps develop discipline and focus whilst providing a skill which can be used in many facets of everyday life. We commend Adam on utilizing all these skills to produce such a useful and well-made bracelet which may inspire some of our students to also try their hand at tying knots.
A step by step for those of you who would like to try your hand at this complex knot - perfect for a little Mother's Day key-ring present!
