In 2017, WAGGGS would like to grow the World Thinking Day celebrations, and invite more girls to experience what it means to be part of the Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting Movement!
This year’s WAGGGS theme is ‘GROW’ and is about growing in conﬁdence, collaboration, friendship, and growing plants to symbolise this.
During this "Special Focus meeting" Senior Branch will be planting the “seeds of change” during the meeting.
The idea is to collect the seeds to "plant a tree" by completing four sections the Roots, the Trunk, the Branches and the Flowers and Fruits.
Senior Branch have outlined below some ideas to help you on your way to ﬁnd the seeds.
Senior Branch also think it would be a good idea to have a “Bring a Friend” night to introduce new members to the Irish Girl Guides
