Club motto

Administration Block

Built in 1905. Corbians wear blue.

Being a Guide (Ranger) means that you know the way, and that you are leading others to follow he right way. There is a lot one can learn from being a Ranger. It helps girls to develop their talents, train in different activities and become very responsible citizens within their own families, community and the world at large.
Rangers club is open to all members of the school.

HISTORY

Rangers club is under the Uganda Girl Guides Association which also operates under the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouting (WAGGGS). WAGGGS was founded in 1909 by Sir Lord Baden Powell. Guiding in Uganda started as far back as 1914 but officially launched in 1922 after the Royal Charter
(Parliament) passed the Act. By 1930, Guiding had spread to Buganda and the others parts of the country it was launched in schools in the following years and Gayaza High School was privileged to be among.

ABOUT RANGERS\’ CLUB

Our Motto is “BE PREPARED”. It is a short sentence summing up an ideal. It reminds us to be faithful to this ideal.
Being prepared means prepared to serve, to be of use to others. If one is prepared to serve, they must give their service voluntarily and joyfully.

THE GUIDE LAW
This is made up of ten components by which a Ranger must live by. These help us to be acceptable people in society and they include;

  • A Guide is reliable and speaks the truth.
  • A Guide is loyal
  • A Guide’s duty is to be useful and to help others
  • A Guide is a friend to all and a sister to every other guide
  • A Guide is polite and considerate
  • A Guide respects God’s creation and protects plants and animals
  • A Guide obeys orders
  • A Guide smiles and sings under all difficulties
  • A Guide makes good use of time, talents and possessions
  • A Guide is pure in thought, word and deed

THE PROMISE

  • As a Ranger one makes three promises
  • To do our duty to Go and our county
  • To help other people a all times
  • To obey the Guide law

We promise not for a time, for a few months, but for the rest of our lives. Once a Guide always a Guide. This is the promise

“On my honor, I promise to do my best,
to do my duty, to God and My Country,
to help other people at all times
and to obey the Guide law.”

As a Ranger one is obligated to do at least ONE GOOD TURN EVERYDAY

This means to give joy to somebody by volunteering o render service. You take the initiative to do it and no wait to be told. We think about our good turn early in the morning.
