Hazelwood and Churchill (Victoria, Australia) local Girl Guide information noticeboard.

Rac Wac 2008

Late 2007 saw the guides plan there own Rac Wac [Race around Churchill/ Wheel and Churchill.]   They planned the route together.  One Guide stated she would like to organise some of the other Guides to help her over the end of Year brake from school.

Early the next year the menu was finaised as the guides wanted a BBQ at the end of the Rac Wac.  Parents were organised to follow everyone around the desired route.  Which was altered for some reaason known to the Guides themselves.

Half way round one Patrol was sat down and they had to explain to the Leaders and the Gipps Guide, what an asthma management plan was, what they should do to lessen the chance of an attach brought on by a sudden wind change in the early evening and when they would have to be responsible to phone an ambulance.  What the number of the Emergency services was and what to tell then.  With this breather done they procceded to walk to the BBQ a[and toilet] area.

Lend a Hand

Lending a hand was the Motto for Brownie Guides. This being so we got the Brownies to trace around their own hand and then think of at least five things [ one per finger] that they could do to help some one over the  next week.

Gumnut Brownies learned to Care and Share, Brownie Guides were lending a Hand, Girl Guides Motto was to Be Prepared.  Ranger guides had the same Motto but their Guide Promise was extended in order that they take their Promise out into the Wider Community.  As you can see the Lend a Hand motto was preparing the Brownie Guides to join in with bigger and better service concepts and thus participate more in service planning that lead into positive  actions.
