September Guiding

September 30, 2017

September has been a busy month for Guiding in Ballarat. Even through inclement weather our Units have enjoyed many activities with their Guides.

We have participated in activities, such as

  • a special camp for successfully completing the state Sunflower Challenge.  The Guides stayed at Pax Hill where they planted sunflower seeds and enjoyed abseiling.
  • visited the Ballarat Wildlife Park to make a donation and learn about koalas (to coincide with Save the Koala Day)
  • a tree planting activity at Lingbogol. The girls camped overnight and were later joined by their dads who assisted the planting of 140 trees.  These were provided by Fifteen Trees.
  • sewing bags and donating toiletry items to WRISC to assist women and children in need
  • creating Care Packs to donate to the Ballarat Soup Bus
  • making Fathers Day gifts
  • collecting mugs to donate to the UnitingCare Breezeway program
  • recreating the activities taught by our Japanese Girl Guide visitors
  • a ‘Dad and Daughter’ night encompassing craft, play, observation and a photo booth
  • service to the Ballarat Toy Library in the form of checking toys and puzzles to ensure they are complete, clean and functional.
  • making special boxes to begin a service project of collecting used glasses to donate to the Lions ‘Recycle for Sight’ program

Different Units have been focusing on a variety of interest badges: Emergency, Eyes, Outer space, Chocolate.
