65th Glasgow Company
The Girls’ Brigade Motto is:
“Seek, Serve and Follow Christ”
Explorers is the first section on the GB journey. Girls join from P1 and stay for 3 years until the end of P3. Making friends and having fun are key to girls of this age but GB offers new challenges through games, craft, physical activities and storytelling.
Juniors start at P4 and this part of their GB journey takes them through to the end of P7. Girls are encouraged to explore the world around them while building on their inter-personal skills. Their award programme offers a wide variety of challenging topics along with other areas such as games, music and drama.
Brigaders run from S1 to S6 and follow a programme designed to challenge them on every level – ability, belief, social responsibility, community engagement. There are many opportunities open to young women at this stage of their GB journey and it is definitely the case that the Brigader section offers something for everyone!
