2nd AIRDRIE COMPANY
What is Juniors?
Juniors is our second section and is for children in P4 to P6 inclusive. We meet on Mondays between 7:00pm and 8:30pm
What do they do?
Juniors have fun! Our meetings are crammed full of challenges, games and activities. There are hundreds of activities catering for just about every possible interest. At the same time we try to encourage them to explore other new interests.
There is loads of variety and little chance of becoming bored!
The award programme is specifically designed to encourage a child to look beyond themselves. Many are interested in one type of activity - perhaps sports, or natural history. Our special programme provides for such interests and at the same time gently urges them to try others of a different type. This provides a balanced all round programme - which includes spiritual and social input, as well as physical and adventure activities in 5 different programme zones . . .
Body - fit for fun
Mind - think and do
Spirit - God and me
Community - me and my world
Creativity - make and do
Juniors will also get to go on trips and days out, as well as possibly going on a weekend camp or holiday that is often the highlight of the year.
Through the many different activities, Juniors will . . .
learn about themselves
get to know people and learn to work together
explore their community
What else do I need to know?
Juniors wear a blue sweatshirt, hat and armband. As everyone wears the same thing they feel as though they belong. However nobody is excluded because they do not have the right clothes.
How long do they meet for?
The weekly section meeting runs on a Monday (in session) from 7.00 until 8.30 p.m.
Here is a video about the Boys Brigade in scotland and what the Junior Section do. It includes interviews with junior section boys from across Scotland on what they like about being in the Boys Brigade.
