PES Junior Girl Scouts Rekindle the Spirit of Scouting

Junior Scouters formed a line to ensure that latecomers would still attend the flag ceremony while others assisted them.

The Girls Scouts of the Philippines (GSP) is one of the existing organizations in the Philippines today that effectively promotes the objectives embodied in Section 13, Article II of the 1987 Constitution which says, “The State recognizes the vital role of the youth in nation-building and shall promote and protect their physical, moral, spiritual, intellectual and social wellbeing. It shall inculcate in the youth patriotism, and encourage their involvement in public and civic affairs.” The GSP aims to help girls and young women realize the ideals of womanhood and prepare them for their roles and responsibilities in their home, to the nation, and to the world community.

Being a Girl Scout means stepping out of your comfort zone and helping others. It means doing things for people other than yourself and feeling good about it. Pinaglabanan Elementary School Junior Girl Scouts enthusiastically assist their schoolmates. Almost every Monday, they help the pupils who are late in going to their respective lines during the flag ceremony. They carry the bags of the little ones from the gate to the Multi-Purpose Building, where the flag ceremony is held. Most of the time, when there is a school or division event convened here in school, their support or assistance is always called for.

The sixth in the Girl Scout Law states that Girl Scout respects living things. With this in mind, I, as the Troop Leader of Grade Five, proposed and implemented a two-day Clean-up Drive in School on June 22–23, 2023. Others might perceive it as a late event, but nothing is late in my book when it comes to upholding cleanliness. The primary objectives are to educate girl scouts about the damaging effects of trash on the environment, to provide positive role models for valuing Mother Earth, and to show them how they may improve their community by taking care of the plants. On June 22, 2023, the Grade V-Manuel Roxas girl scouts picked up plastic bottles, wrappers, papers, cups or plates made up of styrofoam, and plastic bags around the school premises. They seemed persistent in getting rid of all the scattered trash. The school's nooks and crannies were even searched.

The Grade V-Elpidio Quirino Girl Scouts, on the other hand, trimmed down tall grasses and removed unwanted weeds in the Science Garden on June 23, 2023. As it was their first experience removing weeds, some of them expressed happiness and a sense of accomplishment. They even asked me when the next time would be.

These works and actions of Pinaglabanan Elementary School Junior Girl Scouters are proofs that they have embodied in them the true spirit of girl scouting. Kudos to all of you!
