Brownies ETC


Brownies is an international uniformed organisation aimed at positive growth and development of young girls ages 6 ½ to 12.

Brownies will help your daughter to grow in self-confidence and learn new skills in a positive environment while having fun and making new friends.

The first ever meeting of the Woodland Brownies was 7th of April 2011 in the VECP Headquarters in Villierstown.  The Brownies has been very successful with 29 Brownies and 6 leaders.

Within the Brownies there are smaller groups called Sixes. These groups help the girls develop leadership and team-work skills giving them a sense of ownership and responsibility.

You can recognise the Brownies by their uniform:

Yellow sweatshirt
Navy blue sash
Navy blue neckerchief
Leather woggle

The Woodland Brownie meetings are held every Thursday evening from 5.30pm – 6.45pm. We will finish for the summer on the 25th of July 2012. Meetings will start again in September. This year we have been working on earning some badges. We have completed the bird lover, world culture, hostess, athlete and gardner badges and also our blue footprint. We are currently working on our artist, dance and disability badges.
