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

Hazelwood Girl Guide Support Group

Before January 2009 this group was disbanded.  The incoming Hazelwood and Churchill Girl Guide District leader preferred to work with a different method of support.  Having a District team meant that the members were not perceived as only friends and family of the current Girl Guides. The scope of membership being a larger base.  Monitored by size through the Melbourne office of Girl Guides.
 Girl Guide Australia Guide lines any president or treasurer also requires a police check.  No one wanted a police check … nor these positions. Under these conditions no Support Group could operate.

Not repeating past behavior.

At this point the president tabled the proposal the look on the president face when she realized just why I was there was not obvious to all. I’m so proud of myself. I did not outwardly ‘smirk’. But when the President glanced my way I did privately acknowledge to the President that was the reason I was there. Having in the past been on committies with the CDCA current president, and reacting at times to various statement the president possibly thought I would jump in boats and all at this point. I did not. Lessons are learned as time goes on.

Similar but different causes confusion

Often games are played or similar activities are done through out the world. One game may have developed one way, another branched out some other and the original changed beyond recognition. Usually because games and activities spread as people spread, played in may different countries, across class and culture and with anything that is on hand.

The Churchill Guide Unit has up to 6 different primary schools making up the membership. Being a flexiable Guide Unit, with an age range of five to seventeen at different times a simple game or activity needs very clear rules. So now advacacy and self government help in keeping the rules clear to all. These rules are remade several different times over the years.

At different times various camp rules , games [ kick ball, skipping, sack races, craft activities, clean up duties] all come under scrutiny. Discussion is keped cool as the process of determining the rules is decided.

Do we all have an equal input around the discussion circle, in the patrols, patrol leaders meeting, at a committee meeting.
