The St John group for 5 to 9-year-olds, which precedes the cadets which is for 9 to 18-year-olds, began by working for their communication badge in the ambulance station rooms in Frankton.

Ms Faichney said St John Penguins learned about teamwork, discipline, basic first aid and more while having fun. New recruits were welcome.
