One of the beneficiaries of the legacy of Girl Guides is NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, who said of her time with the Girl Guides: “My time as a…Girl Guide taught me so much about teamwork, about good values, and always putting others ahead of yourself. And I know they’re values that will maintain Girl Guides for many years to come”.
