Girl Guides in Queensland 1919 – 2019 - 100 years Strong

In this presentation come with me to see snap shots of the journey for girls and women in Queensland following the determination of a few girls and their Sunday school teachers to find out more about the Girl Guides in 1915. The journey takes them from the grounds of Government House in Brisbane in November 1919 to the most isolated towns and properties in our vast State where women and girls accept the challenge of being their best ‘bound together by our voluntary acceptance of the Guide Law and Promise. This is the outward and visible sign under which we rallied; the hinge on which the movement turns’ (Extract from the Founder’s speech at the World Conference in 1930). In 2019, the challenge remains the same and the courage, determination, perseverance and ingenuity of girls and women is undiminished.
