Baden Powell's Birthday!

Baden -Powell attended the school in the 1860’s. He credits his time at Rose Hill, under Headmaster Thomas Allfree, exploring the nearby common and woods with the creation of the Scouts many years later. His book ‘Scouting for Boys’ was the fourth bestselling book of the twentieth century and sold 150 million copies. He kept in touch with the school until his death in Kenya in 1941.

In his final letter to the Scouts Baden-Powell wished the Scouts a happy life. “One step towards happiness is to make yourself healthy and strong while you are a boy, so that you can be useful and so you can enjoy life when you are a man. Try and leave this world a little better than you found it and when your turn comes to die, you can die happy in feeling that at any rate you have not wasted your time but have done your best. “Be prepared" in this way, to live happy and to die happy – stick to your Scout Promise always – even after you have ceased to be a boy – and God help you to do it”.

Rose Hill School is very proud of its links with the founder of the Scouts and Girl Guides. The school has one of the houses named after him and there are thriving Cubs, Brownie and Rainbow clubs at the school.
