Girl Guiding Fife County Commissioner Caroline Gourlay (pictured above with the girls) presented Emma, Maya, Jasmine and Olivia with their Gold Award and Eilidh her Silver Award. These are the highest awards in the Guide section and the girls have had to undertake lots of tasks and challenges from the 6 Theme areas of the Girl Guiding programme – Take Action, Skills for my Future, Express Myself, Be Well, Have Adventures and Know Myself.
Over their time in the Guide section, the girls have taken part in camps, trips and activities that have challenged them to have adventures and to develop their knowledge and life skills. This has been no easy feat for the girls given the restrictions of the pandemic and many unit meetings taking place on Zoom. The 4 Gold Award girls finished off their awards by undertaking an individual personal challenge. These challenges have included completing the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Expedition section, completing the Elie Chain Walk, Trying out canyoning and gorge walking and planning/organising a special pirate themed treasure hunt.
All of the girls have now moved on to the Ranger section at St Leonards 1st Dunfermline Rangers and are also developing leadership skills within the younger sections of Brownies and Rainbows.
Their leaders would like to say well done to the girls. They have shown that with commitment and perseverance, it is possible to achieve those things you have set your sights on and these girls have managed this despite the huge adversity that we experienced with Covid.
