Organising an international evening
Firstly you need to decide between 2 main options :
One country :
It's a good idea to make a large poster/display about your country and then write a quiz so that everyone will look at your display to find the answers.
Around the World
Collect information, pictures, maps, souvenirs, recipes etc.
Be sure you can name and locate the continents, and that you can identify the regions of WAGGGS.
Talk to your Guider about what you already have in stock, such
as craft materials.
Food - will you just buy some ready made; or make it at home and
bring it, or will you bring the ingredients to cook at the meeting?
Decide whether everyone will do the activities at the same time,
or whether you will run a circuit, or whether you will provide the
activities for girls to dip into in any order.
Can you create a complete programme, with a time filler ?
Are you planning to pass any clauses in an interest badge during this evening? Can others pass too? If so, tell your Guider in advance.
What will everyone wear? If its not ordinary uniforms, girls will
need 2 weeks notice.
Remember that help is available.
Guiders can judge fancy dress or other competitions.
You are being asked to organise an evening, not stress yourself out trying to be in 6 places at the same time!
Now that you've made all the decisions, please give a written plan to your Guider the week before, so that she has an idea what to expect, and can point out anything which you may have overlooked. etc.
