This week was all about leadership. We started the meeting with Learn about Leadership in a Group #4 by completing the Leadership Qualities activity from the Leadership Instant Meeting from the Saskatchewan Girl Guides. We broke the girls into three groups, with an adult to facilitate each group and then had each group report back what leadership qualities they came up with.
Then we held our annual patrol leader elections. We did this the same way as last year, with any second or third year Guide who wanted to run for patrol leader giving a short (1 min or less) speech and then the girls casting a ballot for the three girls they think will do the best job. We ask the girls to put their names on their ballots and then we do our best to put each girl in the patrol of someone they voted for.
We ended the night by learning The Guide Marching song and some closing songs so that next week we can open with a horseshoe.
