World Thinking Day celebrated at Għargħur Primary

On February 22nd, Girl Guide organisations worldwide celebrate Thinking Day – a day when they think about their “sisters” in all the countries of the world, the meaning of Guiding, and its global impact.

Students who are embers of the Girl Guides and Scouts wore their respective scarf to school, to share with their peers what being a Girl Guide or a Scouter is all about.

Every year, World Thinking Day has a different theme that Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world can learn about and take action on. This year, Thinking Day is dedicated to the group of girls who took the lead in 1909 and demanded Lord Baden-Powell create ‘something for the girls’. At the time, Scouting was a boys-only community, and so Guiding was created to cater for the girls’ community.

Locally, the Malta Girl Guides Association is the largest association for girls and young women. This organisation helps girls and young women to develop to their fullest potential as responsible citizens by providing a safe place where girls can be themselves, develop personally and socially, but most of all, have fun while doing so.
