Return To Face-To-Face Guiding Soon
Welcome Back girls, we are delighted to welcome you back to Girl Guides face-to-face meetings!
It has been a while that we have all been in isolation at home and I know we will all enjoy being back together again. The next few months at Girl Guides will be a little bit different so we have done everything we can to prepare for everyone’s safe return.
Please make sure you first check with your Leaders to confirm when your Unit is going to start meeting again face to face. This is a Unit, District and Region decision and will depend on the local situation, eg. The State or Territory rules or if you meet in a local Council or School Hall this will depend on their rules.
When your Unit does return to face to face meetings, you and your daughter need to understand that the safety of all of our Guides, staff and volunteers rests in all of our hands – ours, yours and your family’s. Together we will do everything we can to make our halls as clean, hygienic and safe as we possibly can for face-to-face Guiding. We need everyone’s commitment to adhere to the new rules, guidelines and procedures to ensure that we return to Guiding safely and keep our community centres open. We can do it well together.
These new rules and procedures have been made in line with Government health guidelines for community groups and the halls in which we meet. We need everyone’s help by promising:
- You will read these guidelines with your Girl Guide – carefully.
- You will keep these guidelines somewhere handy to refer to.
- You will pay special attention to the ‘Golden Rules for Girls’ below, which will be strictly managed by your Leaders when your Unit returns to Face-to-Face Guiding.
It is all of our jobs to meet the guideline expectations in every way and every day to avoid any risks or threats to the wellbeing of our Guiding family and the community.
Well done for staying connected with your Guiding friends where you can while we have all been isolated from each other. We look forward to seeing you all soon – in person!
