A little about ceremonies?

Throughout the world Ceremonies and ceremonial form part of every heritiage. Guiding is world wide.  As such the Ceremonies practiced in Australia is similar to these through out the world. As a nation Australia is making her way to being multi-cultural whilst developing an Australian Culture, it’s own Ceremonies and Traditions that are able to be shared and celebrated by all.  

Special occasions and a combined heritage are marked by the Nationally recognised Ceremonies.Australia Day, the Opening of Parliament House and Anzac Day are among ceremonies carried out each year by individual Guide Units or the comming together of many Guiding people.  Right down to the Guides within a Patrol celebrating the Promise Ceremony of a new Guide.. 

All the cereminies are important.  Having a regognised methodology as to how things are run, commands called, and actions expected or taken makes the running of such an easier job.  When a Guide moves on within her Guiding, from one age range to another, more depth to the commpands is given and expected in return.
