We hope everyone had a lovely Christmas & New Year.
We commence Term 1 @ Carrum Girl Guides on Tuesday 4th February 2020
Gumnuts & Juniors – 6:00 – 7:15pm
Seniors, Pre-Rangers & Rangers 7:00 – 8:30pm
(we also offer a staggered timing for Pre-Rangers & Rangers but we will speak to you personally)
As you might be aware, we have over 50+ girls on our database across all age groups…… We ask that you move swiftly in & out of the hall to maximise the time the guides have with their program. Time is of the essence & we enjoy a dynamic program packed full of exciting stuff! Parents hanging around or chatting at the entrance only distracts our guides & can take our leaders away from the activities planned. If you wish to chat to other parents, we hope that the weather is kind for you to have it outside the hall! We do love networking, but are finding it difficult with the level of noise inside the hall.
If you wish to speak to the leaders, we ask if you can email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or message us if you need to chat for than a few minutes so we can concentrate on the program we have created.
Did you know we are all volunteers. Did you know that we give up a lot of time outside girl guide times for programming, training & meetings. Did you know we are sometimes at the hall till 9:00pm or so packing/cleaning up. We love what we do, but with so many girls, we need to ensure our program runs smoothly to fit everything in.
We appreciate your understanding & look forward to an exciting 2020.

Gumnuts & Juniors, bring a friend along to gumnuts & junior guides on Tuesday night. We would love to share the girl guides with a friend.
