Times for Girl Guides

Gumnuts, Juniors, Kingston District, Pre-Rangers, Program, Rangers, Seniors

Hi All,

Juniors / Gumnuts – 6:00pm to 7:15pm

Seniors – 7:00pm – 8:30pm

Pre-Rangers / Rangers – 7:00pm to 8:30pm

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 (carrumguides@outlook.com) 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.

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……..
