We started the meeting together as a group and talked about World Thinking Day. The theme this year was learning about the need for education for girls around the world. In order to earn the World Thinking Day badge we decided to have a book drive and donate the books.
For the rest of the meeting we broke up into 2 groups. One group worked on Considerate and Caring while the other group did Courageous and Strong and then we switched.
