County Guide Day
Guides from across the County gathered to find out more about the new Girlguiding programme. Many of the Guides had already started trying out activities with their units. There were lots of questions about how older Guides can use the transition arrangements to achieve their Gold Award. Details can be found at https://www.girlguiding.org.uk/globalassets/docs-and-resources/programme-and-activities/changeover-guidance-guides.pdf
The Guides completed their Stage 4 First Aid Skills Builder. They practised being emergency services phone operators and performed dramatic role plays of first aid scenarios. They compared different techniques for calming an anxious patient and perfected their bandaging skills. They also learned about medical conditions caused by hot and cold environments and illustrated this with some very creative models.
As well as their Skills Builder, the Guides also tried out some activities from the Unit Meeting Activity packs.
