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.

Tents, team work, camps, and life skills learned on the Hazelwood South Reserve

The Hazelwood [South ] Hall is right next to a public reserve. The Guides of the Hazelwood and Churchill Girl Guides use this reserve area to practice putting up tents. Although the Hazelwood [and Churchill] District has both moder lightweight tents when leadership and team training re camping is required the older canvas kitchen flies and canvas tents come out for erection.

When the Region camp qualification camp, the Ev Graham camp, is run the Guides rope off an area in which to physically view where they have planned to utilize their camp equipment on the site size requirement.

Team work is important as without a semblance of planning, order and working together the camp moral is deemed low enough to close the site.
When working with outdoor camp site plans a large area is required while the Guide are kinesthetically shown so that the patiently learn the skills required.

Melbourne quearies for membership.

Samar knows of other people who are from Melbourne.  They too want to join into the Olave Program. The basic procedure is to get in touch with touch with the Melbourne office via a Cluster representive and go through there channels.  However yes invite people who are interested in what you are doing up to the meetings, activites, events and services that are happening. 

Word of Mouth is terrific advertising.  Interested people share ideas and better yet you experience and join in with a wider range of activities, services and event.  You then have more opportunities to net work your self, skills, and knowledge.

X Box challenge (service to community).

Thursday saw two Gipps Guides helping out at the X-box challenge.  The day was planned as part of the Independant Compass Award participants skills challenge section.  So Rebecca ran the kitchen. (Very successfully too I might add!)  Cordinated activities and behaviours when things did not go as planned for the participants.  Jess was able to take up the slack and assisted in keeping the younger visitors happy and when necessary distrated.

Over all at lot was learned through the day.Things like it takes more than just rocking up and expecting the day to be all set and ready to go.  Now for Grades five and six  (10 to 12 year olds) this is a major organisational shock.  Suddenly they are doing it themselves.  Oh boy. 

Then theres the knowing of what needs to be done before time, and the communication with parents, the community, your friends and general public. What about the deligation of jobs??  So the Gipps Guides saw a need, stepped in while these skills were being initiated, pulled on partners support, and yes, they will be there on January 14th 2010 when the next challenge is open to the public.
