Country Dancing Success At Festival
Four teams of Scottish country dancers from the 27th Greenock Brownies and 27th Greenock Guides took part in Inverclyde Music Festival.
The Brownies danced Rabbies Reel and won 1st and 2nd place, the Guides danced Granville Market and again came 1st and 2nd.
This was a wonderful achievement since the girls had only had two weeks to learn their dances.
They say a big thank-you to Margaret Nelson who came and helped the girls with their dances
Den Fun For 4th Finnart Rainbows
The 4th Finnart Rainbows started their Rise to the Challenge badge. The girls had great fun working together, using their imagination and various materials to build a den. When they had finished their masterpiece, the Rainbows enjoyed some yummy sweets inside it. Afterwards, they got messy painting.
Burns Night For 27th Greenock Brownies
The 27th Greenock Brownies had a Rabbie Burns night. The girls celebrated by learning the poem Tae a Moose after which they made their own moose to add to the poem. The 3rd Finnart Rainbows joined in the night too. The girls all learned heid, shooders, knaps, and taes — the Scottish version of head, shoulder, knees, and toes. The evening finished with a toss the wellie game. A braw nicht was had by all.
The 27th Greenock Guides started their Team Player badge. The girls had to make collages of people who inspire them and why. One patrol chose, as part of their collage, the Greenock Telegraph photographer George Munro. They said that he provides his readers lots of information and stories of good things that happen. Lots of positive role models came out and girls learned positive traits to strive for.
Gourock Guides Rise To The Challenge
The 4th Gourock Guides had a great night working on the Rising to the Challenge badge with each patrol choosing which challenge they wanted to do. The most popular challenge was cooking a cake in a fruit. There were cakes in pineapples, melons and oranges — not surprisingly some worked better than others. Another patrol chose to design a logo on a t-shirt.
