Description of this Electronic Book

Theme Scheme offers you a wealth of creative ideas, activities, games, puzzles, plays and quizzes to help plan, organise and lead your groups programmes. All are fun and practical, requiring minimal equipment, resources and time to prepare.

The first section covers a whole year, month-by-month, to help you celebrate New Zealand and international anniversaries, national days, organisations and causes.

Games are a wonderful way for folk to mix and get to know one another. There are easy instructions for indoor and outdoor games suitable for active, young people, through to less mobile, older people. Great for convenors, leaders, teachers and diversional therapists.

The book also includes sound, straightforward guidelines for running small group meetings, covering rules for happy meetings, an agenda and minutes structure, and the role of the person leading the meeting.

Special Sundays and church related activities through the year are highlighted. This section also notes related plays and readings in Rosalies companion book Ten Plays: Short, easy dramas for churches (available in print and as an eBook).

The last two sections of material for themed quizzes and trivia competitions on general and Bible topics will keep your group entertained and interacting with each other throughout the year.

Author's Bio

Rosalie Sugrue has been organising programmes all her life beginning at age 10, when she initiated a Secret Six Society for classmates in her street. With support from her mother, (who was banned from meetings but permitted to provide snacks), weekly meetings, complete with passwords, minutes and planned programmes, lasted for two years before morphing into a Junior Red Cross Society with a larger membership and a more ambitious programme. Rosalie went through Girl Guides, helped with Brownies and was a Boys Brigade leader. She has taken leadership in Sundays Schools, Youth Groups and student camps. A feminist at heart, Rosalie was instrumental in bringing women into full membership of New Zealand Jaycees, being the first woman to ever address a Jaycee Conference as a (local) member (Rotorua 1974). She has held various positions in National Council of Women, been the National Programme Convenor of the Methodist Women's Fellowship and organised countless meetings, socials, and U3A groups. Rosalie currently runs social programmes for a group of elderly women. Although retired from primary school teaching, she continues to tutor struggling readers and achieves success by inventing educational games and activities geared to each student's needs. All games and activities in this book have been successfully used in groups that Rosalie has led. She is a lay preacher and has plays, poems, prayers, Bible puzzles and articles published in many church magazines.
