Go plastic free in July! 

Juniors made a pledge at guides to reduce, reuse & recycle ♻️. Say no to single use plastic like straws, plastic bags & plastic cups! They made badges to wear & one for a friend to wear. Spread the word & go plastic Free!. Part of the EnviroGuide Badge 2017 (to be sewn on back of sash). 


Unit Helper for Juniors / Gumnuts

Girl Guides Victoria, Gumnuts, Juniors, Parent Help

Juniors / Gumnuts,

I am in need of a regular unit helper for juniors & gumnuts. Guides Victoria ratios requires us to have 2 adults at all times during the meeting. As you know, Minga (my mum) is a great help! She is our District Manager & a member of the Region team. She has also been a Girl Guide Leader for over 20 years in Carrum (35 years as a leader!). I want to “let her off the hook” on a weekly basis & allow her to come down occasionally (not weekly).

Unit Helper role would include: –

  • Be at junior & gumnut guides meetings from 6:10pm till 7:30pm each Tuesday.
  • Have a current Working With Children Check (this can be arranged through Guides Victoria if required).
  • Have Level 2 First Aid (including CPR, Asthma & Anaphylaxis) – can be arrange through Guides Victoria if required.
  • No programming or leadership training required or necessary during the nights.
  • We just need someone who is willing to help out & attend each week.

Comment here, or email Bickie. Thank you.

Request for Parent Roster (Junior / Gumnuts)

Gumnuts, Juniors, Parent Help, Program

Hi All,

Junior / Gumnuts Guides need a parent helper to organise parents for our program for Term 3. Parent help makes our night run smoother

Duties include: –

  • Establishing parents for roster
  • Be a parent contact if helpers need to swap nights
  • Ensure parents attend for duties
Girl Guides Victoria have a policy for Working With Children Check (WWC) & Police Checks. A female adult who volunteers on an occasional basis in an activity in which her child ordinarily participates is exempt from the Working with Children Check. However, this adult must not be unsupervised when working with other children. If you have a WWC (please present a copy to Tamara (Bickie) for our records) or we can arrange for a WWC to be done through Guides Victoria at no charge.
