Girl guides

Four adult leaders originally from the Women’s Circle in New Horizon, joined the Worldwide Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, on Wednesday September 13. The Women’s Circle made their girl guide promise: “I promise to do my best, to do my duty to my God and my country, to help other people and to keep the guide law “. They were enrolled by Jean Dunn, the regional commissioner of Cape West. After their basic leadership training, offered by members of the girl guides, these women will start units in New Horizon for Teddies, girls aged 4 to 7 years; brownies, aged 7 to 10 years; and girl guides, aged 10 to 14 years.
