These are now finished for the season. A huge thanks to all the Sorrento Trainers and Assessors who gave up their time over 9 sessions during November to requal hundreds of people. At the same time we have been running a Bronze course and put over 40 people through the Nipper Rescue Certificate. The Sorrento trainers and assessors are a truly amazing group of people contributing so much to the club.
Donation of Blankets for First Aid Room
If anyone has any spare blankets for our first aid room, can you please drop them into the office during office hours or just pop them in the first aid room. Thank you!
What a great night with lots of first aid cases and lost children.
I was so pleased with the turn out and the feedback from the organisers commenting how great and professional you all conducted your selves. We also had some general public saying how supportive you were while attending to their injuries. Please enjoy some of the photos below. Big shout out to all the new SRC holders who attended the night and the bronze holders who supported them. This is why Sorrento is so great when it comes to patrols and events.
Trainers and Assessors
Thanks must go to the hardest working people around the club at the beginning of each season and that is our Trainer’s and Assessors this season. The team have done all requals for another season for the last month. Coming down every Saturday and Sunday to take our members through. As well as 3 SRC courses and 3 bronze courses while covering assessments for other clubs and not forgetting Stephen Thomas for his hard work throughout the season for organising everything education.
This man needs a medal for the work he puts in with his trusted friend Christine when it comes to scheduling the patrol and keeping them updated week after week and issuing patrol uniforms. Thank you.
