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.

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.

Begining the Olave Baden-Powell award.

Having made their Guide Promise members of the Gipps Guides are choosing to begin their journey through the Olave Baden-Powell Award.

These 18 to 29 year olds are challenging themselves to that both their Guiding Promise and their Guiding into the wider community.

Quite often bringing back to those around them different lessons and influences that they have experienced. Often not realising just how much influence on other peoples lives, thoughts and interests that being involved with activities, events and programs which appeal to them can have.    Part of the Olave Award progress is to present what you have done to your peers.   If you are working in any youth organisation/ work place as a Leader/ teacher or Adult Carer your experiences will transfer to others.  When an event/activity/ service is described, it’s successes, and flops along the way, the struggles/ surprises and things that go right all combine to challenge others in how different to do their chosen things.

Setting out to do something is often a challenge rewarded and supported by others already travelling or who have travelled along that path too.  There are many friends you meet and make within this Olave Program.  people you may have met at school, work, camps or round the block even.

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.
