ROSEBUD Girl Guide Sarah Wallace is getting a name for herself as a quiet achiever.

This comes after she completed a range of challenging guiding activities over many months, including outdoors, service, world guiding, The Guide Promise and Guide Law, Guiding Traditions, and the system where girls learn to be leaders – The Patrol System.

Last week plans were underway to reward her with guiding’s highest honour – the BP Award – at a special ceremony at Rosebud Guide Hall, Saturday 31 August.

“From the time she began as a youngster at Rosebud she has quietly set herself many new and varied goals and challenges,” Girl Guides Mornington Peninsula District manager Heather Barton said.

“This award is built on a series of real challenges which takes many months to undertake – let alone the planning and the actual ‘doing’.

“Sarah has systematically gone about jumping each milestone, all the while making a significant contribution to the life of Rosebud Girl Guides.”

It is no secret that she’s had a lot of fun along the way, too …

Sarah will take part in a Victorian State Presentation Day in November.

Rosebud Girl Guides are looking for potential leaders “so that we can extend Guiding further on the Southern Peninsula and beyond”, Ms Barton said.
