Exciting weekend for Girls’ Brigade Scotland

The weekend of 17 – 18 May was an extremely busy one for GBS and thanks to all who supported us at any of the three events that the organisation was involved with.

Executive Nominations

The Executive is pleased to announce that following a nomination process, which closed on 1 April 2014, the various positions have been filled as follows:

GBS Holiday Leadership

The new Holiday Leadership forms and a supporting Guidance Sheet are now available on the website under the Leaders Section. Companies are asked to ensure that these forms are now used for all applications and any old forms held are destroyed. These replace all the previous Camp forms and GB HQ will not accept old forms after 28 February 2014. Please take your time to read through these and familiarise yourself with them, particularly if planning to lead a holiday over the coming months.

Character, Values, Poverty and Girls

What is the value in being part of Girls' Brigade for girls today?

That's a question we often get asked by parents, churches, government and young people. To hear what the value is, please follow the link below and read the Blog from Gary Walsh of Character Scotland who heard about Girls’ Brigade at the recent Pupil Inclusion Network in Scotland (PINS) meeting in Edinburgh on 19 September. Who did he hear it from? He heard it from 2 Brigaders from 4th Johnstone company and they certainly left a lasting impression! Well done girls.

Queen's Award

Following the launch at this year’s AGM, we are proud to be able to announce an updated and revitalised version of our highest award – The Queen’s Award.

The principles remain exactly the same as they have always been and what has found to have worked well over the years for both candidates and those supporting them has been retained. The changes that have been made mean that it is an exciting time to think about encouraging your girls to take part and several Companies have already asked for more details to pass on to their older Brigaders.
