Brownies receive Junior BP award

SEVEN 10-year-old girls in blue stood proud last week with 12 months of hard work paying off as they were acknowledge with the highest badge in Brownies.

First Warwick Brownies Jasmine Stephens, Annelise Ryan, Renee McLean, Rae-Louise Wright, Bonnie Howard, Emily Follett and Darcy Clegg all completed their Junior BP Award and are looking forward to Guides when they are 11.

Emily said they were required to do a variety of activities over the 12-month period, which included participating in Clean Up Australia Day, learning about another country and exploring a religion.

“I liked organising a birthday party,” Emily said.

Group leader Ann-Maree Clark said the girls worked together, in patrols and individually to reach their BP goal.

“It is a major achievement for some and all have grown in self-confidence,” she said.

“They have worked really hard and learnt a lot about themselves and others.”

Jasmine said she loved being a Brownie and it was a great way to learn more about yourself and what you can achieve.

“You become more independent and learn to do things by yourself,” Jasmine said.

“I learnt I could do things I thought I couldn’t do through doing the Junior BP award.”

The girls celebrated the completion of their Junior BP Award with family and the First Warwick Brownies last week.
