We'd love to have you! There is plenty of information on this page, if you have any more questions you can
You are welcome to come along and join us on our first night for 2021 on Wednesday 3 February at 6pm.
GB's vision is: Girls' lives transformed, God's world enriched.
Our aim is to: Help girls become followers of the Lord Jesus Christ and through self control, reverence and a sense of responsibility to find true enrichment of life.
Girls' Brigade has been operating around the world for over 125 years, and in Mount Isa for 50 years.
There are four groups in Girls’ Brigade; Cadets (4-8 years old), Juniors (7-11 years old), Seniors (10-14 years old) and Pioneers (13-18 years old). Girls are able to join the age appropriate group anytime once they have started school. The girls in each group work towards awards that are received at the end of each year. The awards involve girls completing achievements that focus on spiritual, educational, social and physical themes.
We enjoy weekly devotions/bible studies, group games, skills-based activities, crafts, cooking and much more. Each age group works toward a number of "achievements" each year. Our achievements focus on the girls' educational, social and physical development, with the older girls also having the opportunity to develop leadership skills. Spiritual development is interwoven in to all aspects of our program.
From time-to-time the girls are given the opportunity to attend local company camps, sleeopvers or excursions. Pioneers (grades 9-12) have the chance to attend state and national camps and courses.
Term fees are $40 per term per child. Invoices will be sent to parents by email, payment can be made by direct deposit.
