Materials needed:

  • large Globe of the World
  • 1 large blue candle
  • 1 large white candle
  • 7 small white candles
  • 11 small Blue candles
  • pasticine or small candle holders

Ceremony:

  • Globe is placed in the centre of a table
  • Horseshoe is formed
  • As the large blue candle is lit and placed on one side of the globe the Guide Promise is said by the entire Unit.
  • As the large white candle is lit on the other side of the globe, a leader recites the Aim of Girl Guides.
  • Tenderfoot Guides to be enrolled will have the small candles.
  • Guides will take turns reciting each Law - As a Law is read, a white candle is lit and placed in the plasticine and when finished, they will encircle the globe.
  • The same is done with the Objectives - a blue one is lit and placed in between the white candles.
  • Once all the candles are lit, proceed with Enrolment of the Tenderfoot Guides - this looks really nice if you are able to turn off the lights in the room.

When all of the Guides are enrolled:

Leaders:

As the candles circle this Globe of the World So does Guiding
Each small candle represents a Law or Objective
Leading towards the achievement of meeting the Aim
The keeping of the Promise
Let these flames show you the way.

Unit then sings: "On my honour"
