Girl Guides - Skills for Life

 Baulkham Hills Possums

 

Possums are aged between 5 and 6 years. We meet once a week for 75 minutes on Thursdays.

Our program is based on providing age-appropriate experiences and skills that develop the girls' physical skills and interactions with others.

You can see examples of our program below.

We currently have vacancies for this Unit. Please email us or call (02) 8396 5200 if you would like to join.

 

Sorry, these are old programs. The webmistress is really busy, and will update the page as soon as she can!
