Australia Day … Yes I’m Cool.

Australia Day 2009 [written by one of the Youth Guides]

On the 26th of January 2009 Churchill and Hazelwood Guides made their way over to the Churchill community hall, to start the Australia Day ceremony. We started the ceremony with the colour party coming forward, this year I got out of colour party and instead I took some magnificent photos. The colour party then had to raise the flag (Although they only had to do was pull a string to release the flag). After the flag got put up we sang the Australian National Anthem.

Settling in at Gallipoli

  1. Have the Guides find out what a Periscope, a ballista and what other firing devises for shells were used during the First World War. Or have on display diagrams for their construction.
  2. Dig your trench using sheets, blankets, boxes or anything else suitable.
  3. Using a paper tube and mirrors make a periscope.
  4. Work with a Patrol to make a ballista, trebucket or other devise from which to fire shells – water bombs.

This A.N.Z.A.C. wide game activity has many uses.  Although Guides looks for peaceful ways of resolving conflict this is not to say that Guides cannot be a) inventive and b) gain a basic understanding of what ‘man’ has invented in order to force another into submission statis.

Really good when dad’s come to Guide Family days and try and compete with the Guides.  Never quite sure whose won on these days but makes a lot of laughs as the adults try and out do the Guides.  Then of course you have partners and the opposite sex adults trying to out do each other as well.
