Extra Curricular Activities for standard 1 at the school Ashley attends are mostly Saturdays. They offer various activities such as Taewondo, Art class, Diabolo, dancing, Wushu – to name a few. Unfortunately though, they all class with Ashley’s existing activities outside of school.
When I was in primary school, I signed up to a Brownie.
Taken from Wikipedia :
Brownies were first organized by Lord Baden-Powell in 1914, to complete the range of age groups both for girls and boys in Scouting. They were first run as the youngest group in the Guide Association by Agnes Baden-Powell, Lord Baden-Powell’s younger sister. In 1918 his wife, Lady Olave Baden-Powell, took over the responsibility for the Girl Guides and thus for Brownies.
Why do they not have it here? I’d love for Ashley to join the Brownies.
Excerpt from Girl Guiding Scotland :-
Brownies follow a programme called The Brownie Adventure, which is divided into three areas: You, Community and World.
You: Brownies develop confidence and self-esteem through having new experiences and learning new skills. They build friendships and learn to share and cooperate with others by working together in small groups called ‘Sixes’. They get a say in what happens at Brownies through discussions or ‘Pow-wows’, which help them develop decision-making skills and the ability to put their views across.
Community: We encourage girls to become active citizens by helping them understand and participate in their communities. This could mean raising money for charities or visiting local places of interest.
World: Our programme encourages girls to learn about the wider world. Activities could involve celebrating a festival from a different culture, finding out about endangered animal species, or learning how they can combat climate change. Towards the end of her Brownie days, a Brownie may be introduced to the Brownies Go For It! resource. It is similar to Guide Go For It! resources, which give groups of girls more freedom to choose their own activities. The activities will encourage her to find out about Guides as well as develop skills such as team work and decision-making.
