Brownie Guide Promise

I promise that I will do my best:

To love my God,

To serve the Queen and my country,

To help other people

And to keep the Brownie Guide Law.

.

Once a week at St. Jude's Primary School, twenty-four young girls meet under the proud and watchful eye of Brown Owl, Anne Glynn, and Snowy Owl, Sue Beech. Of course, this is no ordinary meeting, for these young girls are the Brownie Guides!

.

At the beginning of each meeting, a 'Brownie Ring' is formed to welcome each other, followed by a 'Pow-Wow' - a time for discussion, which encourages the girls to think for themselves. Whenever there are plans to be made, whether it concerning the next Pack Holiday or how to raise money for charity, individual Brownies are given the opportunity to put forward suggestions.

.

There is no doubt that being a Brownie is fun!

.
Behind all the games, activities, outings and badge-work, however, there is a distinctive framework. Brownies: are Wide Awake, are Healthy, Do Their Best, Have Fun, Help At Home, Make Things, Lend a Hand, and are Friendly.
.
Each Brownie meeting ends with 'Brownie Bells' - a prayerful song.
.

The young ladies of St. Jude's Brownies - a credit to their leaders and to their parents.

Here the girls are all dressed up for their Halloween party.
