Dads on the Green

Posted May 10, 2024 in Opinion By Community Relations

With over 80 dads and father-figures in attendance, the inaugural P&F Dads on the Green has been a resounding success!

The night kicked off at the South Perth Bowling Club with a few beverages and snacks as we watched the sun set on a glorious evening.聽 The group was introduced to fellow Wesley dad, Tony Percival (Year 7), who ran through the modified rules of bowls and provided a brief demo to make sure we all knew which way the ball would swing. The competitive spirit was alive and well thanks to some generous prizes donated by the P&F, Kim Meers (Year 7) from Jurien Bay IGA, Sony Sindhe (Year 6) from South Perth Thai Orchid Restaurant and our good friends at the WAFL provided some free entry passes.

Pizzas were delivered and we paused the bowls to watch some Friday night AFL and work out who the finalists would be.聽 The first ever Dad Duck Race, determined the door prize winner, a magnificent Wesley supporters jersey from the College Uniform Shop.

The finals were everything we hoped for and the huge crowd saw 鈥淭eam 15鈥 of Nick Algie (Year 8), Mal Harwood (Year 8), David Roberts (Year 8) & Chris Hilbrands (Year 9) take out the inaugural Championship.聽 A quick participation survey took place after the winners were announced, with 100% of respondents keen to return for 2025 and maintain the casual Friday afternoon format.

Huge thanks the Dads who came along, to South Perth Bowling Club and Tony for hosting, to the prize donors and to the P&F Team (April Jolly, Hailee Cook and Chair, Kate Petersen) that did all the work in the background to make the event the success it was.

Here鈥檚 to the next one!

Thank you to Year 6 parent, James Hunt, for the event recap.
