The Girl Guides movement is strengthening itself in the Sister Isles of Carriacou and Petite Martinique.
The Girl Guides Association of Grenada provided training to nine of the adult leaders in Carriacou on January 26.
Training of Unit leaders is part of the mandate of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS).
The training took the form of a half-day session in which the following aspects of the Basic Level Syllabus were covered:
*Mission & Vision of Grenada Girl Guides Association
*History and structure of local Girl Guides Association
*Promise, Law, Values of WAGGGS
*Guide Signs and Symbols
The leaders present were happy for the opportunity given to them so that they can enable girls and young women to develop their fullest potential to become responsible citizens of the world.
A ceremony was held on January 27 for the enrolment of two leaders and sixteen girls of Bishop’s College at the Hillsborough Government School.
The Promise Ceremony was held in the presence of the parents of the girls, Principal of the school, Rholda Quamina, and the District Commissioner for Carriacou and Petite Martinique, Lynthia Joseph.
The Deputy Chief Commissioner, Simone Roberts, and the Training Commissioner, Gloria Bonaparte, also officiated at the ceremony.
The Girl Guides Association of Grenada welcomes these eighteen (18) new sisters of Bishop’s College to its membership.
The school joins the Units at L’Esterre Rosary, Mt. Pleasant Government and Dover Government Schools as the association expands on the sister isle.
