Western Australia Perth Community Dinner

Our Western Australian Dinner is Friday 8 November at The George, 216 St Georges Terrace in Perth. While we are in WA, anyone is welcome if you find yourselves in Perth on that date. Such a case is David and Jeanette Jarman who happen to be in Perth at that time and have already RSVP’d to attend our dinner. The invitation has all the details on how to book.

Boarder Parents’ Weekend

The annual Boarder Parents’ Weekend was this year in Quorn, superbly organised by Bronnie and Jeremy Rigden. Saturday evening’s fabulous community dinner was held at the Cradock Hotel with special guests John and June Parnell, who live about 20 minutes ‘down the road’. It was wonderful to catch up with John and June, past Boarder parents themselves and with a Westminster association that extends over a lifetime. John is a Life Member of School Council, having served as Deputy Chair for many years. June’s father is Frank Heaslip, one of the Founders of Westminster, considered as the ‘father’ of Boarding and was the School’s first Chairman of Council.

Women Against Road Toll High Tea

Westminster Honour Award recipient Rosie Aust is sharing a message about the next Get Home Safe Foundation event:

Once again I’m seeking your support for a Get Home Safe Foundation event – a fabulous high tea on Sunday 17 November at the Grand (Glenelg) – please see the attached invitation for details

As a reminder, let me give you a very brief overview of the Foundation and what we are trying to achieve. Managing Director Darren Davis is determined to improve the road safety stats – not only to reduce the number of deaths, but also the number of crashes, which have life impacting consequences for individuals and families. His work in the area of road safety is being recognised both statewide and nationally. He is a current nominee for a South Australian Community Achievement Award for his dedication to road safety education and we are all hoping that he wins – it will be well deserved.

Darren launched the foundation last year and he has the support of the State government, ACC, SAPOL, RAA and other organisations, but I’ve run out of acronyms!

Now here is the ‘ask’ -- ‘The Women Against Road Toll High Tea’. This is one WAR I’m willing to fight and I’m asking you to join me in battle! The inaugural high tea was held last year and is now to become an annual event.

By the way, men are entirely welcome so please put a group together and join me in supporting Women Against Road Toll. The booking information is on the invitation and it’s going to be a fabulous afternoon with some amazing items in the silent auction.

I’d love to see you there. It’s an incredibly important (and universal) cause – every single one of us can be impacted on by road crashes. Help us wage the WAR to prevent road deaths and injuries.

Feel free to contact me if I can assist with any further information.

Please book – that’s it!

Cheers
