Junior Program for Term 4 2018

Gumnuts, Juniors, Program

Hi All,

Junior Guides Term 4 2018 Program is available here

I have allocated a few weeks to have parent helpers during the night.

If you can help, please comment here or email/text me.

If you wish to help, you must let me know ahead of time as all parents who help must be registered (no charge – just technical stuff) with Guides Vic & have Working With Children Check plus Child Safe updates.

We are still planning – so this might change slightly……..

Hi Juniors,

We are going to work on the badge “Embracing 2018 – Commonwealth Games Challenge” in the first few weeks of Term 2.

I have a challenge for you before we start next week……..
