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

Activities, events and service.

Girl Guides are always involved in something.  A lot of the time there is much preparation and little to show for it.  The thing is unless you have a clear vision and a known goal, the stepping-stones that are the break down of the strategies used may not be apparent.  Often one learning activity is a stepping stone from another learning activity.  Thus said there is always different levels of ability and interest within the Girl Guides involved.  Some Girl Guides may have obtained visible markers (badges) others are working towards these.  Some may nearly be finished one  (or more) of one badge type.  Where as others may be using those same experiences towards there badges.  it’s up to each Guide personally to choose where the challenge and the experience may be heading in her life.
Girl Guides are always doing something.  As parents, careers or the public we just may not be aware of it…..  Yet!  Yes the Guides are always thinking up something.
The Hazelwood and Churchill District team are there to support these activities through people power,  fundraising and amongst other things friendship.

As youth members what do we do?

When the Girl Guides plan their programs an integral part of is keeping the Fundamentals and Elements of the Australian Guide Program included.  So each term starts with a new Program designed by the Guides.

The Programs include:

*   Explorations,

*   challenges,

*    achieving,

*     activities,

*   events,

*    service

*    badges

*    awards and so forth.

The seven fundamentals of the Australian Guide Program are encouraged.  These being the further discovery and development of : Promise and Law, Outdoors, Service, World, Guiding Traditions, Leadership skills and Patrol work.

Each Guide travels her own journey. Badges, awards and more are stepping-stones along the Girl Guides learning path. Achieving these stepping-stones means much to the recipient. To those looking on the visual stimulus of seeing the guide wear the badges and awards is a blessing.

about this Girl Guide District

About this Girl Guide District

Hazelwood and Churchill first started when one girl wanted to be a Guide. transport was problematic.  So she started out as a “lone” Girl Guide.  Soon others joined her.  They met at the Hazelwood South Hall.  As Churchill begain to spring up Churchill Units were added.  Initially meeting in Churchill Itself.  The district was called Hazelwood.

Over the last 17 years many changes have occured.  The ‘new’ way allowed for fllexable units to be formed.  These work well for the smaller numbers of Guides attending.

The Hazelwood District Girl Guide Leader moved on.  Years went by until a new District leader could take her place.  Coinciding is the Hazelwood and Churchill Girl Guide District – as it is currently.  The District currently is composed of the District Leaders team (everyone 18 years and over [male or female], the leaders, the Gipps Guides ( 18 to 30 year old Guides) and of course the Youth members.  One meeting is on Tuesday 4.30 to 6pm, the other is just forming and meets on Wednesday 7 to 8.30pm.

Service being a big part of what this district is about. So there are always service projects going on. Out door activities are an essential part of all Guiding learning.  recognising, and working on challenges, learning stepping stones is important too.  So too are the recognitions that are part of these challenges.

Guiding is quietly regaining its identity today.  In recognition of the verbal encouragement one Guide makes to bring her friends along Guides National have a reward system.  Once the New girl has registered she then recieves an Ice Cream Badge.  Her Guide friend receives another Ice cream scoop.  You will see these worn on thespecial badges area of a sash.  Front bottom area.

Welcome to Guiding today.
