Gumnuts & Juniors, bring a friend along to gumnuts & junior guides on Tuesday night. We would love to share the girl guides with a friend.
Special Note to Juniors: – please bring along one friend only. As you can appreciate if I have 10-15 new little ones it can get a little hectic quickly……..
Gumnuts & Juniors starts at 6:15pm Tuesday- remember juniors need to bring along Commonwealth Games challenge. Junior Parent Roster will be at sign in table for parents to fill in. Remember Child Safety Laws – we need you to be registered with Guides Vic before assisting this term with juniors/gumnuts. Please call/text me if you need assistance with this needed urgently. Parent helpers are essential to both a successful program & appropriate ratios of leaders/adults to youth members.
Seniors starts at 7:15pm
Please remember to wear full uniform each week & bring along any handbook & Badge books.
Anzac Day March forms have been sent – please check your email inboxes as they now come directly from Guides Vic.
