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

patrol Activity through the Rac Wac’s.

Sometimes when the Rac Wac has been planned the idea was that:

Each patrol was to follow a different route to an appropriate destination ( accompanied by an adult with first aid kit and a car).  The year that we were to try this out everything was cancelled, delayed or rearranged due to the Fires that were / had been ranging around Churchill for nearly a month.

Global Action Theme is known as GAT

Global Action that has been ”Changing the World’ has been happening through out Girl Guide and Girl Scout programs for over 100 years. Action themes may have occurred on a World Wide basis involving the Regions of Guiding working together through our World Association of Girl guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) right down to just an individual question,action or activity sparking off a patrol activity that may lead to an International activity.  Global Action keeps occurring on a multitude of levels within Guiding.

As the members get older sometimes they move away from Guiding as their career develops or interests evolve, or they may stay within the movement, but the essence of having experienced the GAT is there. Typically Leaders bring into Guide program what they themselves enjoyed as a Youth member as well as what their interests and life skills are now.

The essence of service is still service. Over the years many form of service have been built on.  Different badges have been provided. The Guides have worked towards these with different service awareness and methods utilized.

So how is the GAT so successful? Simple really.  WAGGGS influences to have a voice and to listen.  Then to speak out, look at root causes and do projects.  While this occurs the Guides are learning.  And the life skills and interest circles are quietly going around still into the next generations.

They arrived with a…

 

C.F.A Come on down to Guides.

 

When planning 2009 Tuesday program the girls decided to invite the CFA people to Guides. Little knowing that every one here would be so affected by the near by fires over the last two weeks.

 

Here are some of the pictures of the CFA ladies who came to our Girl Guide meeting today. And we did not scare them off…. so they are coming back too.

Teddy Bear Picnic [2010] was a washout

The Younger Guides were going to attend a Clean up Australia Day at the Glendonald Park, Churchill.

The Girl Guides were bringing one invited Teddy Bear and another friend could come along too.  With their Teddy Bear of Course.

Instead half an hour before the time to arrive the participants parents received a text stating that the morning had been cancelled.The drought braking rain was still just coming down. Again.Only this time there was a definite wind chill factor creeping into the air.

the Hazelwood and Churchill District Girl Guides operates with a general risk analysis re attendance.  Then there is the activity specific Risk analysis.  However I, the District Leader, overruled the desire  the Guides, their teddies and their friends to attend had.

There will be other activities with Teddies this year.

Teddy Bear Picnic is on again in 2011.  Same place at the Glendonald park at the BBQ and play ground area.  The Clean Up Australia Starts at 9am, Teddy Bears welcome too.  The Teddy Bear Picnic starts at 10 am for Morning tea.  There will be activities. And Hopefully sunshine at the time.
