Guides

Girl Guides meet in St. John’s halls every Tuesday night during term time and we are always looking for new members.  The Guides are split into 3 sections according to age, the Rainbows, Brownies and Guides.  The times and main leaders are indicated below and for any further information or contact details please contact the church office on 9335 4814 or via e-mail here.

Rainbow Guides - Tuesdays 6pm - 7pm (Leader: Fiona McMillan)
Rainbow Guides is for girls aged from 4-7 years and is all about developing self-confidence, building friendships, learning new things and having fun. Girls get their hands dirty with arts and crafts, trying out cooking and playing games. Rainbows is all about learning by doing and follows a programme called the Rainbow Jigsaw, through which children can take part in lots of different activities with girls their own age in the 4 areas of Look, Learn, Laugh & Love.

Brownies - Tuesdays 6:30pm - 8pm (Leader Angela Robinson)
Brownies is our section for girls aged 7-10 years.  Brownies learn new hobbies, play music, explore other cultures and get adventurous outdoors. Girls can also extend their knowledge and abilities by working towards Brownie interest badges covering many different hobbies and activities from Science investigator to Circus skills.

Brownies become a member of a Six, a unit with a name such as Badger, Fox, Mole, Squirrel, Hedgehog or Rabbit, and follow a programme called the Brownie Adventure. The name reflects the world of exciting opportunities, challenges and fun that is Brownies.

Guides - Tuesdays 7:30pm - 9:30pm (Leader: L. Hamill)
Guides are girls aged 10 to 14 who are given the chance to explore their individual skills and abilities and try out new challenges as part of a team. Members take part in a wide range of exciting activities at their regular meetings, and at special events or holidays. Girls can get involved in anything from adventure sports to performing arts, travel and taking part in community action projects.

Guides work together in small groups or 'Patrols' and, with the support of an adult Leader, choose and run some of the activities themselves using ‘Go for It!’ resource packs.
