Girl Guides continue to support girls and provide them a safe place to grow by moving and adapting the delivery of their programs to a remote and flexible model delivering fantastic extra-curricular activity to their local communities of Girl Guides and keeping the girls connected and busy with interesting activities.
“It is so important for our girls to have access to some of their usual activities and to continue to connect with their friends at this time of social distancing and isolation” believes State Commissioner for Girl Guides NSW, ACT & NT Sarah Neill.
Guiding from their own homes, girls are completing challenges and activities given to them by their Leaders. Some Leaders send physical packs while others email instructions and activities to be completed at home or during online or teleconferenced virtual meetings. Girls are sharing photos of their achievements with their Leaders and fellow Guides over private blog spots and other social media.
This Guides@Home page curates some terrific activity ideas that can be incorporated into any Guide Meeting, virtual or other, and can even be used by any Guide outside of meeting times for fun and self-fulfilment!
