Since the new leader took over 3rd Henley Brownies, all the children have been taking part in activities to think about themselves and others in the community. They learnt the Brownie promise in British sign language, thought about the things that make them unique and made crafts to help them remember the Brownie promise.
‘I promise that I will do my best, to be true to myself and develop my beliefs, to serve the Queen and my community, to help other people and to keep the Brownie Guide Law.’
Over the last two weeks new Brownies; Selene, Poppy, Amelia, Kitty, Maisie, Eliana, Holly, Juno and Flo made their promise at a ceremony attended by parents. The children walked through an archway formed by the other Brownies, were introduced by their new groups sixers and shook hands with everyone to be welcomed to the pack. Part of the Brownie story involves the children to look at their reflection – ‘Twist me and turn me and show me the elf, I looked in the water and there saw …….. myself.’
We look forward to another term full of varied activities. Brownies are girls between 7 and 10, who enjoy a variety of crafts and activities with new friends. The unit still needs committed leaders in order to expand to a full pack, offering a further 9 spaces to local girls.
