Guiding has many opportunities for both those with or without disabilities.  Learning about and exploring different aspects of disabilities helps all of us in our daily lives.  To this end always has been Service Badges that the members of guiding can work towards.  Enjoy finding out more about what and how these various badges have worked over the decades.  gain a wider knowledge of what other badges have entailed and what different generations of girl guides  have done towards earning these Service orientated badges.  Where possible follow ons have been hyper-linked for your interests.  Having a glimpes of what and where a simple service assistance has taken various Guides may help you better understand the Service components of being a Girl Guide in the Hazelwood and Churchill District Girl Guides.

  • To represent the Gipp’s Guides and wear Uniform.

Australia Day Jan 26th

Australia Day celebrated as a State Event in Melbourne. This event has the Guides carrying a large Australian Flag. For this, the day is primarily aimed at the BP’s, Queens Guide’s and OBPs presented the previous year. When in Melbourne for the Australia Day event make sure that you have eaten well before the ceremonies begin. After which there is a Parade down Elizabeth Street.

As a Hazelwood and Churchill combined event the places have altered when necessary.  They have been behind the Hazelwood and Churchill shopping Center, Churchill Saloon, at Gaskin Park and at the Churchill Public Hall entrance. This event is open to all aged Guiding personal and members. On Australia Day the Gipps Guides or Leaders have been asked to face paint as an activity while people eat and catch up with friends. Other times there have been odd jobs like the handing out of flags, song sheets, readings, hoisting the flag / colour party [with Scouts].

Sometimes we go into Morwell’s Kurnot Hall for the Australia Day Ceremonies and Presentations/ Citizen of the Year Awards.

Full Uniform is worn. Take drink bottles full of water and sun hats.

Churchill Lions make sure there is a full breakfast available.

Car Show service to the community.

The car show was good.  There were cars, motorbikes, static engine displays, radio controlled crs, more cars, food and lots of people. The weather was even good for a change. The kitchen fly was placed so that the reflection from the Hazelwood Pondage did not damage anyones eyes. Just as well as the day was clear and the light intense.

There were faces to paint…Oh that’s why we were there!  The District Leader painted faces and we did to. We all improved as the day got older.  Butterflies and hearts anyone?

Actually we have booked in again for next year (the Hazelwood and Churchill District team has) and they have been tentativly booked also for the 20th of Feb 2010  another car show in Bairnsdale.  More faces to paint. Were coming too.
