Girls of all ages learn and have fun together through the local Guiding movement. Sale of Girl Guide cookies benefits the many programs and projects they undertake.
A lot that is worthwhile happens at each weekly meeting for the girls. Here’s what is happening at present:
• The Sparks, including Sam and Sophie, are working on the “Around the World Badge”.
• Brownies like Jamie have been practicing making change to sell cookies as well as learning about caring for pets to earn the “Pet Badge.”
• Guides have a contact in Japan and are writing letters to these Japanese Guides. They are also learning more about using the compass through various activities and are gradually becoming proficient knitters.
• Pathfinders – As well as sowing seeds so they can place plants around town as a community service project, these older girls are learning the knots and lashing needed to make a ‘gadget’ that will make their camping experiences more comfortable. They have also planned an Easter party for Sparks and Brownies, and will be making hot cross buns for this event.
