Branch report – May 2013
SSPA of WA was very quiet over the summer; we seem to hibernate here during the heat.
We had a catered Christmas party at Thornlie Leisure Centre (venue organised by Marjan and Darren). We had a good turn-out and both the adults and children had fun in the pools.
Jocelyn and Jo have worked very hard in getting the game of Boccia up and running for the group to participate in. They secured a grant from the City of Kwinana to pay for the venue for 10 weeks and the site is booked from 7 May (after the Nationals). Jocelyn has been selected as part of the State Team to go to Nationals and Jo is team coach. We have a fair bit of interest from other SSPA WA people who wish to join our Boccia team once we get it going so we hope to have more of us at Nationals next year!
We have heard from Rhiannon, one of our young people, she emailed Jo to catch up and mentioned she was engaged and getting married in December! So, Congratulations to Rhiannon and Jevon on your engagement!
We met a new family, Irene and Himi Hiku from moved to Perth from New Zealand with their children. They have a daughter, Te Aroha, who has Achondroplasia.
There will be a great assemblage of WA people attending the SSPA National Convention this year in Tasmania. We are all very much looking forward to catching up with our friends and meeting new people.
Our next get together will be at The Maze Fun Park in Bullsbrook on Sunday 19 May 2013.
SSPA WA Members, families and friends.
