Helen Storrow Seminar: Tuesday
The Theme for Terrific Tuesday was 'Knowing Myself' and we started the day with an excellent reflection with the Firewaves Patrol. We focused on developing ourselves as future leaders, our dreams and how to make them a reality. Then the workshops began, and we rotated around 5 activites learning about different leadership theories, ranging from Transformational, Action-Centered, and Situational. We discussed how the theories related to us personally, our diverse cultures, and Guiding lives.
Values and beliefs proved to be a very interesting topic and provoked much discussion between participants from developing and developed countries. We looked at our core values in life, applying them to both ourselves individually, and as a group, later transposing them onto WAGGGS's values as an organisation: the acronym being P-R-O-G-R-E-S-S-I-V-E.
Following a delicious slice of cake from the Chalet Kitchen (thanks Jenny!), we played the Human Machine Energizer Game! While the Firewaves created a human tractor, the Tornados imitated a garbage collection truck, and Lydia (a member of the planning team) single-handedly impersonated a combine harvester! We then concentrated on the theme 'biodiversity', 2010 being the International Year of Biodiversity, and ended the day with a fantastic rendition of the traditional Swiss legend 'William Tell', delicious chocolate fondue and the unique Our Chalet Swiss Culture Game Quiz! We're all very excited about the days to come.
