SHSLSC set to participate in Women's Mentoring Program

Congratulations to Carolyn Wilson and Laura Adolphus who were selected by Surf Lifesaving Australia to participate in the first ever Women's Mentoring Program! The program is designed to strengthen and support females in leadership positions in surf lifesaving. Over the next 12 months, Carolyn (mentor) and Laura (mentee) will support each other and faciliate leadership skills they can use and apply to their work and everyday life inside and outside of surf lifesaving.  

We will catch up with Carolyn and Laura throughout the program and hopefully we can get these two accomplished women to share some insight on the tools and skills they are using as effective leaders.

A very special thank you goes out to three Secret Harbour SLSC members who recently assisted authorities with a marine search after a student was swept off rocks near Yallingup. 

The search involved various police units and volunteers including our own Garry Williams, Tim Wilson and Craig Graydon. Despite the massive efforts by all involved, police have since suspended the search. 

Our thoughts are with the family, friends and search teams affected by this incident.

The trio from SHSLSC were able to transport all of the gear to the search area using our surf rescue Ute, generously provided to the club by Rockingham Toyota.
