The St. Aloysius College Scout Group is the scout group in Malta with the longest continuous service. During the Second World War, many College Scouts served in the armed forces and the local defense force. The Scout Association was awarded collectively the highest Scout honour, the Bronze Cross, in 1943.
The College Scout Group has an enviable record of participation in overseas camps and events. This began in 1920 when Malta was represented at the first World Scout Jamboree in Olympia, London. World Jamborees are held every four years in different continents. The College Group has been represented at most of the World Jamborees, including the most recent ones in Australia (1988), South Korea (1991), the Netherlands (1995), Chile (1999) and the Centenary Jamboree in the UK (2007). College Scouts have also attended various Regional Jamborees held in different countries such as the United States.
The Group is very active in the life of the College and also has often carried off the inter-island trophies for Scouting abilities. The Scouts perform various charitable activities during the year, the most notable being the help given to the Community Chest Fund over the Christmas and New Year Periods.
The Group’s Headquarters are located at Birkirkara within the precincts of St Aloysius College.
