Girls' Brigade

We are at the end of another year and after a wonderful Display we break for the summer months.

I have special ‘Thank Yous’ to say at this time to all my Leaders and helpers who give so willingly their time and talent to work with all the girls in so many ways.

We had a very successful year with the Junior / Senior team winning silver medals at the District club camp and the Explorers winning gold medals in the hoop competitions and silver medals in the modern dance competition.

At the National Modern Dance competition the Brigaders were recalled with three other teams for 4th place, they performed brilliantly and came out winners, we were all over the moon.

During the year the Junior and Seniors did a personal hygiene course which is a great training at their age 9 – 12 years and they all enjoyed, learned a lot and thank Sharon. They also had great fun decorating tee-shirts with re-cycled goods.

The explorers recycled materials to make models of company members and they looked fantastic.

We had a non uniform day when all the girls wear their own gear and Sharon, Nicola and Dara painted the Explorers nails beautifully with little flowers, stars and patterns. We did this because they wouldn’t normally be allowed nail-varnish in their uniform. We were delighted to contribute €262.00 to the District who presented a cheque for €2000 to The Sunshine Children’s Hospice.

We also had a very productive time knitting baby hats. We have over 300 hats to give to Temple Street Children’s Hospital and The Coombe Hospital for their premature baby units.
