Learning Whistle signals

Learn / practise whistle signals. Patrols choose their own special signal. Leader uses scatter signal to send patrols searching for tokens hidden round playing area. If one is found, finder stands still until PL notices, signals patrol to assemble before patrol collects token. Whenever leader signals “rally”, first patrol back earns extra token; last patrol forfeits one. Vary with “PL come here”; deduct a token from patrols of any girls who mistake that signal for “rally”.

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.

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.

What is a Patrol Activity

Patrol activities can occur either while at Guides or out of Guide meeting times.  Basically the members of the Patrol discuss something, organise it and do it.  They must inform parents and their leader. Their leader must inform the District Leader before the activity begins.

There can be any number of Patrol Activities going on through out the year.

Patrol activities on private land or in private homes have guidelines to them.  So therefore there must be a registered leader of Youth present.

‘Hoon’ driver during overnight camp play time.

When the District had an overnight stay a five year old youth member of Guides was walking near the front of the Hazelwood [South] Halls north eastern corner. A white Ute came came from the South (New Soccer club room area) towards the Hazelwood [South] Halls off road entrance / exit.. The Guide was running around just playing. None of us expected that a ‘hoon‘ would travel quickly over to this exit. During this time the ‘Hoon‘ driving just about collided with the young Guide. Should this have happened there was nothing we could have done except phone emergency services.

Unfortunately the Ute was either travelling too fast for an accurate number plate identification to be taken, or the number plate was on the wrong vehicle. When the incident was immediately reported to the police response was that the police could not do anything about this incident.
The soccer club secretary and also the President were informed at different times. their response was that the incident did not happen. We were making it up.

Hazelwood [South] Hall and Guides as at 24th Feb 2009

* That the Hazelwood South Hall is still used by Guides for such things as togethers, BB Q’s, overnight stays, camp items.

  • After the use of the hall there is a clean up and maintenance report effective.


* Why should anyone else be interested in what the Guides do there?

issues re Hazelwood Honor Board addressed at CDCA meeting 24.2.2009.

Addressed the issues of: –


* Why the Guides had the Honor Board.
* Why the hall was under utilized. ( The danger of getting run over as Soccer cars rushed for parking by cutting of the reserve,
* Not being able to use the reserve for games, parking and entry to hall etc [ risk assessment word used]
* The relocation back to the Glendonald building for meetings,
* Waiting for Council to address the entry issues (build a new entrance way)
* Building maintenance reports and bringing Hall up to current Latrobe City Council maintenance of building standards [work currently in progress].
* That this maintenance will be finalized when there is a front fence the same as the early photos of the Hazelwood South Hall have in them.
