1st Mount Isa Girls' Brigade

WHAT IS GIRLS’ BRIGADE?

Girls’ Brigade is an international Christian based youth organisation for girls from Prep to Grade 12. Every one is welcome, you do not have to belong to or attend a Church for your daughter to be involved.

Girls’ Brigade originally started in Ireland in 1893 and came to Australia in 1927.

The girls are split into 4 different age groups:

  • Cadets—Prep to Grade 2 (6—7.30pm)
  • Juniors—Grades 3 to 5
  • Seniors—Grades 6—8
  • Pioneers—Grades 9—12
WHAT TO EXPECT ON WEDNESDAY NIGHTS

Each group works on achievements throughout the year to receive a badge at the end of the year. The achievements vary depending on the group and what the leader has chosen to do. Some examples are: Cooking, Toy Making, Paper Craft, Home Helps, Water Awareness, Camping, Entertainment.

Our night typically looks like this:

  • 6:00pm—Opening Parade
  • 6:10pm Games/Whole Company Activity 6:30pm—Supper
  • 6:40pm—Group Time
  • 7:30pm—Cadets Go home, older girls continue with their activities

Each year we have a special night during the year for Mothers’ Day and Fathers’ Day where we invite the girls’ Mums and Dads to share a very special evening with us. At the end of the year we have an Awards Night where the girls receive their badges, all family members are invited to attend.

We give new families up to 6 weeks to make sure their daughter/s like Girls’ Brigade and want to continue before purchasing a uniform. All girls need to wear closed in shoes. If hair is longer than shoulder length it needs to be tied up. Jewellery is kept to a minimum— one set of sleepers or studs in their ears, a watch and one signet ring.
