As youth members what do we do?

When the Girl Guides plan their programs an integral part of is keeping the Fundamentals and Elements of the Australian Guide Program included.  So each term starts with a new Program designed by the Guides.

The Programs include:

*   Explorations,

*   challenges,

*    achieving,

*     activities,

*   events,

*    service

*    badges

*    awards and so forth.

The seven fundamentals of the Australian Guide Program are encouraged.  These being the further discovery and development of : Promise and Law, Outdoors, Service, World, Guiding Traditions, Leadership skills and Patrol work.

Each Guide travels her own journey. Badges, awards and more are stepping-stones along the Girl Guides learning path. Achieving these stepping-stones means much to the recipient. To those looking on the visual stimulus of seeing the guide wear the badges and awards is a blessing.

Service projects

Guiding equips and supports many to take on various service projects.  These may be influenced through great world wide projects or just a small humble project like doing your bit.

The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts works closely with other World Wide Organisations.  WAGGGS also has triannialy themes that each Guiding country is part of.   Currently the Challenge the World theme.  Asking of others to give back to their communities is a major task for any organisation.  Made easier if whom they have asked knows the culture, aims and traditions of the one asking I must admit.

Changing the World Project

Being a Guide challenges you to reach out beyond what you think you are capable of.

Want to be a singer like  the english young lady  Pixie Lott?

about this Girl Guide District

About this Girl Guide District

Hazelwood and Churchill first started when one girl wanted to be a Guide. transport was problematic.  So she started out as a “lone” Girl Guide.  Soon others joined her.  They met at the Hazelwood South Hall.  As Churchill begain to spring up Churchill Units were added.  Initially meeting in Churchill Itself.  The district was called Hazelwood.

Over the last 17 years many changes have occured.  The ‘new’ way allowed for fllexable units to be formed.  These work well for the smaller numbers of Guides attending.

The Hazelwood District Girl Guide Leader moved on.  Years went by until a new District leader could take her place.  Coinciding is the Hazelwood and Churchill Girl Guide District – as it is currently.  The District currently is composed of the District Leaders team (everyone 18 years and over [male or female], the leaders, the Gipps Guides ( 18 to 30 year old Guides) and of course the Youth members.  One meeting is on Tuesday 4.30 to 6pm, the other is just forming and meets on Wednesday 7 to 8.30pm.

Service being a big part of what this district is about. So there are always service projects going on. Out door activities are an essential part of all Guiding learning.  recognising, and working on challenges, learning stepping stones is important too.  So too are the recognitions that are part of these challenges.

Guiding is quietly regaining its identity today.  In recognition of the verbal encouragement one Guide makes to bring her friends along Guides National have a reward system.  Once the New girl has registered she then recieves an Ice Cream Badge.  Her Guide friend receives another Ice cream scoop.  You will see these worn on thespecial badges area of a sash.  Front bottom area.

Welcome to Guiding today.
