The Queensland Branch Scouting Instructions (QBSI) are provided as a reference guide and information source on most aspects for everyday Scouting as applicable within the Queensland Branch of The Scout Association of Australia.
This edition of QBSI replaces all previous editions. The current Policy and Rules (P & R) (including amendments approved by National Council), detail rules on how to undertake Scouting but makes provision for the organisational and administration variations required in individual Branches.
All persons supporting Scouting should make themselves familiar with the publication Policy and Rules of The Scout Association of Australia. Please note that QBSI incorporates The Charter Manual and the Adventurous Activities Policies and Procedures (i.e. 2.15 Adventurous Activities)
QBSI sets out the organisational interpretation of the Rules adopted by this Branch. It reflects the practices which all Member and Supporters must adopt when undertaking any Scouting activity within the Queensland Branch. The Fundamental Principles (i.e. Duty to God, Duty to Self and Duty to Others) are the basis on which these instructions are formulated.
