During the 2018/2019 Patrol Season, Director of Lifesaving, Mikaela Sutherland will select one patrol member each month who deserves a bit of extra recognition for their extraordinary efforts whilst on patrol.
Congratulations to Elyssa Pierce who is our DECEMBER Patrol Member of the Month!
Not only a leader in the competitor field but also a great role model for surf lifesaving. Elyssa is always proactive on patrol, willing to help and always showing great leadership to the younger patrol members.
Elyssa recently attained her Silver Medallion which enables her to lead and manage a lifesaving team in emergency and non-emergency situations. Upskilling is a crucial part of our role and this sets a great example to up and coming members of the club.
Elyssa is now the proud owner of a $50 Ripcurl voucher. Well done Elyssa, happy shopping!
November’s Patrol Member of the Month award goes to TWO members. Mia Ross on patrol 1 and Noah Doran on patrol 10. Both members were held in high reprimand by their patrol captains who said they went above and beyond what is expected of them on patrol at such a young age.
Both members will be rewarded with a choice of a piece of Wanda merchandise or a $50 Ripcurl voucher.
Well done Mia and Noah.
Mia has been acknowledged as being someone who leads from the front, and a role model for the SRC members on her patrol with her maturity and the responsibility she takes on when on patrol.
Noah has been eager to learn all sorts of skills on patrol from patrolling in the tower, practising his board skills and going out on the IRB. This came in handy as he (as an SRC) did some impressive rescues on his patrol at the end of November, which were noted to be in significantly challenging conditions by his patrol captain.
Big congrats to Harry McNamara who is our OCTOBER Patrol Member of the Month! Harry has contributed a massive 21.3 hours to patrols in just over a month, and on top of that attained his Bronze medallion. Well done Harry!
