    Sandakan Scholarship

    Sandakan Scholarship
    Today it was once again my privilege to travel to Boyup Brook to participate in the judging of the Sandakan Scholarship.
    How many Lions know of this project the signature project of the Boyup Brook Lions Club?
    How many Lions even know what or where Sandakan is?

    As part of their Australian History curriculum the year 9 and year 10 students at Boyup Brook District High study WW2 and in particular the Sandakan Death Marches.
    Would you at the age of 15 had the confidence to face three strangers all seniors from Lions Clubs and answer their questions about what you think of conscription, and do you think people should be forced to go to war, and should Australia support our allies in any and every conflict, and should POW's be compensated and many more interesting and difficult questions?
    Because of time constraints we are only able to spend 10 minutes with each of the students, often we would like to have much longer conversations with them.

    This was only the morning's work. After what I suspect could have been a nervous wait and probably not much lunch for the students we gathered in the lesser hall. In front of their fellow students, the family members that they had invited and some strangers interested in Sandakan, the students then presented a speech, a 5 minute video production or a trilogy consisting of a short factual statement, a painting and an original song or poem. These extremely articulate and talented young people blow me away every year with their knowledge and presentations. Our job is so difficult even with a score sheet.

    It's just as well we had a good morning tea and lunch because there is no way the judges will see afternoon tea. This is the hardest part of the day, we have to add up scores then open the all-important envelope and see the score from the teachers who have been working with them all year. The judge's score out of 90 and the teacher's score out of 10 add up. The winner this year scored 90 and the others were all close behind.

    The winner is Patrick. I'm looking forward to the memorial service tomorrow to hear Patrick's very emotive speech again. He well deserves the trip to Sandakan in April for the ANZAC service. I will also lay a wreath on behalf of district 201w2.
    If you don't know about the Sandakan Death Marches google the information.
    Over two and half thousand soldiers captured at the fall of Singapore were incarcerated by the Japanese. Six men survived the death marches. I pray we will never forget the young Australians and Brits who lost their lives in such appalling circumstances. Tragedy is not an adequate word to describe what happened.
    There are at least 6 young Australians in Boyup Brook who will also remember

  • Margaret River Ronald Mc Donald House

    Margaret River Lions has adopted a room for 2016 at the new Ronald McDonald House in Monash Road Nedlands. The new Children’s Hospital when opened will be next door.

    The purpose built facility is for seriously ill country children and their family who live over 100 km from the Children’s Hospital in Perth. This accommodation if offered free to the family.



    The facily is amazing and so well planned and designed it has 42 rooms that can cater for two-eight people depending on the family needs. They all have disable en suites, wardrobes, cupboard space and encouraged to bring some of their family photos and memorabilia to make it more homely.

    There is a full kitchen dining area. Several play areas both for young children and teens. With a lovely roof top space and garden area. There is a schooling area the only one of its kind in a Ronald McDonald House in Australia. It is fully equipped with laptops and all programs run benefit both the sibling and patient who are staying at the House. The Centre is staff by fully qualified teachers and all activities align with the Australian School Curriculum.



    A recreation room equipped with game machines, gym equipment all pleasantly displayed in large bright spaces.

    Central to all this is a wonderful mobile that can be seen from the centre of the 4 floors of the house. All artwork on the mobile was designed by patients of siblings staying in the house. A lasting memento that there is happiness to be found despite the difficult journey of childhood illness.

    Several of our Club members have enjoyed a visit to RMH and are awed by all it has to offer families that are coping with a severely sick child.

    Metro Clubs may like to assist the House by volunteering, there is a wonderful opportunity for Metro Groups to participate in Home for Dinner where you can cook dinner for the families, along with the assistance of a professional chef. Please contact for more information.

    FIONA STANLEY PROJECT

    This project started back in October last year when Lion Bob showed the members an article indicating that Fiona Stanley Hospital was seeking funds for the purchase of paintings for the Neonatology Unit. As nobody knew about this, and prior to allocating funds, it was decided to send Lions Bob and Brian W on a mission, being finding more information about the project idea and report back to the Club.

    As usual for Bob and Brian, this was acted professionally and in no time, we had a good idea of the project: it was the purchase of "paintings" from the renowned WA artist Wendy Binks. Now , it was not the usual painting on cancas or paper as we know them. it is a revolutionary printer that "paints" directly on th ewall; as these paintings are in a hospital environment, this method is extremely clean and avoids the accumulation of dust, bugs, etc - and you do not want this in an area with premature babies.

    By that time, the Club decided to go abead with the project, funds were allocated and the lady in charge of this project at Fiona Stanley nurse unit manager Allison Martin was advised our Club was behind her and she could seek quotes. It didn't take long before we had news, we agreed on the costs and the paintings went ahead. And what a result!!: a myriad of little and big emus appeared in the rooms, corridors and offices - around 400 of them splached on 91 paintings: some in pyjamas, with crutches, other little ones in incubators, and a lot of silly but lovely ones - a treat for all parents, kids, visitors and staff. It is a fantastic project well completed - we are very proud of us and it is deffinitely funds well spent. This will give immense entertainment for a lot of people for many years to come.
