Girl Guides Day

Girl Guides Day is celebrated around the world on February 22nd each year and in Herbertstown our two representatives wore their uniforms to school to mark the occasion.

The girls visited some of the other classrooms to talk about the Girl Guides and how they had earned their badges. Well done girls.

Hospital Handball Club have training for juvenile players on Sundays from 2:30-4:30pm and are always happy to welcome new players if anyone is interested in trying the sport out.
