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

Disco party for the 5 to 10 year olds.

Saturday 15th May 2010.

Disco for the 5 to 10 year olds.

Starts 2pm to 3.3pm

Glendonald Child and Maternal Health Center

Churinga Drive, Glendonald,

Churchill

‘Bring a Plate’ would be appreciated.


The Guides have been making invitations to this Disco to hand out through their families and friends. The older Guides who can attend have decided that they will enjoy doing various jobs for or on the day.

For instance next week at Guides they will be baking for the event. Sorting out various ‘flashy’ equipment and decorations of what goes where.  They already know what table decorations will be on hand and are going to prepare this on the day.  Music is something that they have not thought about yet.  Well see how this pans out though.  The CD player is there at the office.    What activities are the Guides going to do other than the Jig Saws and drawing that they suggested will be interesting.

Adults are there to offer a hand and to step in before the Guides being to struggle with the DIsco.

The ownership of the idea for the Disco, and the running the Disco is allowing the Guides to explore just how far their abilities can be challenged.  like everything the Hazelwood and Churchill Guide do this Disco will be a great learning curve for all concerned.

Stratagies for coping with dances and discos intergated into program

Movement, music and closer personal boundaries may frighten or embarrass the members.  So to practice being at ease in situations where ‘getting up close and personal may be necessary, or being confined to a room with many people, loud music and fast movements we have used  Make up a dance senarios, light games and activities. These stratagies and actions  test peoples personal spaces as well as lay down practiced methods of being part of but allowing for health,  space and privacy issues remain to be private.

Flashing lights may cause problems – along with noise factors.  Having several areas where each person can have time away from a personal percieved situation is a must.  The dance area and grounds is best fenced off and supervised from within.

Equipment for the Discos and dances

Early 2009 the District purchased disco equipment.  Unfortunety the disco strobe ball had a slight accident and ‘fell’ from a Guides hand so ow it does not turn around – yes we would like another one.  Then all the electrical cords to the lights and flashy things went missing.  [So if you have any spare we could do with them]

However there is still the funny battery powered lights. the stereo system and speakers.  At the Glendonald meeting are there is a cd player.  The kitchen is great as the catering can be made there.
