In Term 3, Galston Girl Guides continued to meet weekly.
We met online and enjoyed a wide variety of activities, including baking, designing a picture out of healthy foods, making a gift for Dad for Father’s Day, a slumber movie night, tech night and even participated in an online escape room.
This regular meeting outside of school lessons provided a welcome break and supported the girls’ well-being during the lockdown.
After 18 months of hard work, which continued during the lockdown, Olivia Campos completed the required challenges to receive her Junior BP award. This is the highest award in Junior Guides. Olivia participated in a range of outdoor and leisure activities, developed leadership skills within her Guide unit, learnt to make decisions, set goals and work as part of a team.
