About GEM100 – an update from the organisersGEM

GEM100 is a celebration of 100 years of Girl Guiding in Western Australia and is our opportunity to celebrate with a party and to showcase girl guiding to the public of Perth.

  • DATE: SUNDAY 28 JUNE 2015
  • TIME: We will gather in Forrest Place from 9am for a 9.30am opening and will gather again at around 2pm for our special closing ceremony.

There will be a party atmosphere in Forrest Place with music and dancing, balloons, cake and games. We will also have games and activities in the Urban Orchard in the Cultural Centre precinct (over the railway line, near the State Library, Art Gallery and Museum).

At the Perth Town Hall, where the decision to begin the first Girl Guide Company was made, there will be an historic display featuring photos and memorabilia. This will be part
of our celebrations and Guides will visit this to gain a sense of our rich history. There will be the opportunity outside the town hall to purchase Centenary merchandise from Guide

The end of our party will include a renewal of Promise for which Guides and Leaders will be awarded a special certificate, and the day will have a surprise ending.

Leaders will have to bring with them current details for their girls including any medical or health requirements and contact details for parents or guardians (as in the Youth Activity Consent Form).

We are expecting special visitors for the day, including our Chief Commissioner. Please encourage all members to join in our birthday party and make it one of our special memories of Girl Guiding in Western Australia.

If you have any further enquiries please contact the Administration Oficer at Reception at Guide House who will forward your enquiry to the organising committee.
