1st St. Mary’s Brownie Pack

 

The 1st St. Mary’s Brownie Pack started at the St Mary’s Government School on the 10th October 1987 under the guidance of Miss Joan Hamilton of St Mary’s Village, Moruga Road.  The Brownies ages range from seven years to eleven years.

 

Our first official enrolment was on the 11th July 1988.  During this ceremony our pack enrolled four girls.  On the 27th May 1989, the Girl Guide Association held their annual May Fair at the Couva Junior Secondary School.  The Victoria East Division from the Princess Town District was represented by 1st St Mary’s Brownie Pack.

 

The Girl Guides Association of Trinidad and Tobago is celebrated their 75th Year of Guiding.  This celebration took place on the 10th June 1989, at the National Stadium.  The theme for that year was “Like a Diamond, Guiding is Forever”.  The 1st St Mary’s Brownie Pack participated in that celebration. On the 30th June, 1989 the Princess Town District held their annual Sports Day, here again the 1st St Mary’s Brownie Pack participated in that sporting event.

 

Following are some of the aims of the 1st St Mary’s Brownie Pack.-

 

  •   Respect for others

  •   To help serve the community

  •   To respect God and Country

 

Although the Pack is relatively young, it has inspired quite a number of girls and parents so much that a definite and positive interest is now being shown by many students.  At the moment our membership has grown to fifteen girls and from all indications the St Mary’s government School Brownie Pack is heading for a very meaningful part in the life of the school.
