Guides launch junior Kadooment band

Girl Guides

The Girl Guides Association of Barbados has officially signaled its intention to enter the Junior Kadooment competition, a first in its history.

The association today launched its band World of Guiding…Come Learn With Me at its Pax Hill, Belmont Road, St. Michael headquarters.

Commissioner for Training Hetty Stoute-Oni, a band leader, said the three sections – Come read with me; Come dance with me; and Come make a better world – would each cater for 100 members.

Our guides are actually here doing their own costumes,” she explained.

We have been in it now for about three months…there’s not a lot of time [left]…but we’re hopeful that as school [go on break] we’ll have the guides here making their own costumes.”

Despite a lack of sponsorship and criticisms about the move to take part in Crop Over, Stoute-Oni is insisting that it is right step.

Girl Guides are delighted to have this band. We’ve had our naysayers but you need to know that your culture is yours. How you interpret it, how you translate it, how you perform it is up to you,” she added.
