MASSIVE THANK YOU to Wanneroo ISUZU UTE

Wednesday, May 29th, 2019

On Sat­ur­day, 25 May 2019, we were proud to take deliv­ery of a brand new ISUZU LSM DMAX 4 X 4 DUAL CAB UTE.

This amaz­ing vehi­cle has been gen­er­ous­ly spon­sored to the club by Wan­neroo ISUZU UTE on a 3-year loan. At a han­dover cer­e­mo­ny in the court­yard Alis­tair Cook, the Club Pres­i­dent, was hand­ed the keys to this shin­ing beau­ty by a very enthu­si­as­tic Glenn Miller, Deal­er Prin­ci­pal of DVG Wan­neroo. His phi­los­o­phy in life is to “give back where you can”, and hav­ing seen our old vehi­cle, quite by chance when he was hav­ing lunch at Swell with his wife, Janet, he knew he could con­tribute to the club.

It is only with big-heart­ed sup­port like this from local busi­ness­es that the club can reach its full poten­tial. This sav­ing will allow the Club to redi­rect funds to our vital life­sav­ing oper­a­tions.

The Club and the patrol cap­tains look for­ward to a pro­duc­tive part­ner­ship with Wan­neroo ISUZU UTE and to work­ing togeth­er to help save lives on the beach.

AAA Education and Surf Sports Awards Wrap

Wednesday, May 29th, 2019

We have had an awe­some sea­son. The AAA (Attain, Achieve and Acknowl­edge) and Surf Sports Award evening was a great suc­cess and recog­nised the true ded­i­ca­tion of its mem­bers. The evening cel­e­brat­ed all things edu­ca­tion­al acknowl­edg­ing the great work that the train­ers and asses­sors have achieved over the last sea­son. Our newest Bronzies were in atten­dance tak­ing our new Bronze Medal­lion mem­bers for the 2018/19 sea­son to 73. Gle­nis Pear­son has to be recog­nised as Mullaloo’s old­est recip­i­ent of the award. At 67 years young Gle­nis has set the stan­dard for us all!!!

The evening was also a per­fect oppor­tu­ni­ty to acknowl­edge those mem­bers who have patrolled for many years. The ded­i­ca­tion our mem­bers have to patrolling our beach and keep­ing it safe was recog­nised.

Surf Sports GM, Neil Forbes recog­nised the healthy pas­sion and ded­i­ca­tion our mem­bers have towards com­pe­ti­tion. Tro­phies were award­ed to Club Cham­pi­ons, Best at States 2019 (indi­vid­ual and teams) and most improved. Over­all the evening was a suc­cess and a great oppor­tu­ni­ty for our mem­bers to come togeth­er and cel­e­brate.

Any mem­bers who have gained an award in the 2017/18 and 2018/19 sea­son and not col­lect­ed their award please con­tact the office. Your cer­tifi­cate and in some cas­es medal­lions are wait­ing for col­lec­tion.

What a cracker of a Carnival!!

Round 4 of IRB rac­ing at Mul­laloo opened up with a chill­ing morn­ing, but our beach deliv­ered beau­ti­ful con­di­tions as always. The begin­ning of the car­ni­val start­ed out with a spinal injury and a cob­bler sting but in the club­bie spir­it, help was not far away with both injured com­peti­tors being com­fort­ed and assist­ed to by our won­der­ful vol­un­teers… but the show went on with Mul­laloo tak­ing out the points from a fierce competition.The high­light of the day would have had to have been the male tube res­cue where Mul­laloo had 4 of 6 com­pet­ing teams in the finals, tak­ing out top positions.The IRB cham­pi­onships are get­ting clos­er to the end, with one more car­ni­val left and then States on 23rd of June at Mul­laloo. Be sure to come down and cheer on our com­peti­tors, the reign­ing state champs, there will be be plen­ty of thrills and spills.

Huge thanks to all of our Mul­laloo vol­un­teers who helped to set up and pack up the car­ni­val as well as our First Aid and Offi­cials on the beach.

MEMBER WELLBEING – Exam Stress & Anxiety

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2019

Exams can be stress­ful and be anx­i­ety pro­vok­ing. Stress is what you expe­ri­ence when you start to become over­whelmed by a stres­sor (approach­ing exam) and your cop­ing meth­ods are either not help­ful (avoid­ance or risky behav­iours) or not enough.  Anx­i­ety is future based. That is, we wor­ry and feel anx­ious about some­thing we are about to do although our feel­ings and asso­ci­at­ed thoughts may be dri­ven by past expe­ri­ences.

Whether you are in the final years of high school or at uni­ver­si­ty, there is no escape from the expe­ri­ence or pres­sure of exams. Some peo­ple approach exams with a pos­i­tive mind­set, see­ing it as an oppor­tu­ni­ty to demon­strate what they know and per­haps pre­fer­ring the short pain of an exam to that of an assign­ment.  How­ev­er, it would be fair to say, these peo­ple are the minor­i­ty.

Exam peri­ods can also be stress­ful for fam­i­lies, as the per­cep­tion and often real­i­ty is that a lot depends on exam results. Whilst there are many path­ways to future aca­d­e­m­ic stud­ies and career choic­es, schools still por­tray exam per­for­mance as a path­way to future suc­cess. So, what can we do to man­age and alle­vi­ate the stress and anx­i­ety asso­ci­at­ed with exam times and what are the signs to look out for if nor­mal stress and anx­i­ety start to become some­thing more.

First­ly, it is impor­tant to under­stand that some stress and some feel­ings of being anx­ious are nor­mal.  Our brains are wired to iden­ti­fy risk and our bod­ies are designed to respond to it.  When faced with a sit­u­a­tion which brings on fear (exam), the brain and body respond by get­ting ready to either fight, flight (run away to safe­ty) or in some cas­es we freeze.  A lit­tle bit of stress is actu­al­ly good for us and has been demon­strat­ed to improve per­for­mance. Why? Because it increas­es arousal and makes you alert.  Under these cir­cum­stances, the brain is able to use the pre-frontal cor­tex (front of brain, respon­si­ble for log­i­cal think­ing, prob­lem solv­ing and con­trol) to approach the stres­sor and use cop­ing strate­gies to solve the prob­lem or resolve the threat. Too much stress and this expe­ri­ence cre­ates a chain reac­tion with the release of hor­mone and chem­i­cals which may make you want to run or freeze. So rather than being able to use high­er order prob­lem solv­ing and think­ing, here, the brain goes into prim­i­tive mode.  Typ­i­cal­ly, this is when you feel over­whelmed and unable to cope with the sit­u­a­tion. Here, the pre-frontal cor­tex is unable to func­tion and the more prim­i­tive part of the brain, the amyg­dala, along with the hypo­thal­a­mus and the pitu­itary gland takes over, releas­ing adren­a­line and cor­ti­sol which can lit­er­al­ly leave you frozen in fear, unable to recall any­thing from all those hours of study and pos­si­bly want­i­ng to run as far away as pos­si­ble.  The more you pan­ic, the worse it gets.

So, what can we do to help man­age stress and anx­i­ety?

Let’s begin with par­ents, why because they can actu­al­ly be cru­cial in help­ing young peo­ple to remain calm.

Parents;

  • Aim to choose your bat­tles and words wise­ly. Do you want your child to do well at school or have a tidy bed­room?  It is unlike­ly you are going to have both so decide ear­ly and stick to it.
  • Pay atten­tion to your child’s emo­tion­al health and well­be­ing. Pos­i­tive mes­sages and sup­port from you in times of stress and what your child learns about them­selves and you at this time will set your child up for life, more so than exam results.
  • Look out for changes in behav­iours and sleep­ing and eat­ing pat­terns. Is your child par­tak­ing in more risky behav­iours ie drink­ing and oth­er sub­stances?  These can be ear­ly warn­ing signs of some­one who is not cop­ing and needs sup­port.
  • Make sure you have a good rou­tine for your child, ie reg­u­lar meal times (even if they don’t eat it or binge at KFC) and good qual­i­ty food.
  • Find some­where in your house where they can study away from oth­er noise and dis­trac­tion. Bed­rooms do not make the best study places as they are for sleep but yes, this will take some nego­ti­a­tion and pos­si­bly a trip to buy some fan­cy study items!
  • When your child tells you that “you don’t under­stand”, they are prob­a­bly right! It is so much hard­er now than when you were at school.  Kids mature lat­er and job prospects real­ly are quite poor.  They are already putting enough pres­sure on them­selves; you load­ing on more is often not help­ful.
  • If your child doesn’t want to exer­cise, go do it your­self. It will help with your stress lev­els too.
  • Let them know that you love them, tell them it is okay to feel stressed and ask them what you can do to help.
  • If they don’t get the results you or they are hop­ing for, it’s okay, we all learn as much if not more from fail­ure than we do from suc­cess.
  • Avoid ask­ing oth­er par­ents or young peo­ple what their results were. Instead, just con­grat­u­late them for try­ing their best and get­ting through the exam peri­od.
  • Focus on sup­port­ing your own chil­dren. Com­par­ing your child to anoth­er is not help­ful and can actu­al­ly be harm­ful.

Students;

  • Break your study down into lit­tle bits and do it often with decent breaks in between.
  • Reward your­self for your efforts with healthy activ­i­ties or treats.
  • Find a study bud­dy, make it fun but get the task done. Being pre­pared is the best way to tack­le exams.  You are less like­ly to want to run if you are feel­ing pre­pared and con­fi­dent and this takes some com­mit­ment from you.
  • Have a good rou­tine, eat, sleep, relax, study, socialise. Rou­tines make life pre­dictable and pre­dictabil­i­ty reduces stress and feel­ings of being anx­ious.
  • Exer­cise doing some­thing you like with peo­ple you like. Exer­cise reduces the feel­ing of being anx­ious, it helps to get those chem­i­cals out of your sys­tem and cre­ates bal­ance and makes you feel good (tru­ly!).
  • If you are feel­ing stressed or over­whelmed, talk to some­one you trust. Peo­ple will lis­ten if you let them know how you are feel­ing.  If they aren’t lis­ten­ing, find some­one who will.
  • Avoid the temp­ta­tion to par­ty hard. Rely­ing on drugs and alco­hol to fix your prob­lems will only bring you more prob­lems.
  • Seek feed­back and guid­ance from your teachers/lecturers/tutors. It is their job to guide you on what you should be study­ing and most of them will do this hap­pi­ly, espe­cial­ly if they see that you are putting in the effort.  If ask­ing in front of oth­ers is intim­i­dat­ing, ask to see them on your own and out of class or send them an email.
  • When faced with the nag­ging bed­room drag­on, give a lit­tle. Just tak­ing up your dirty dish­es to the kitchen is like­ly to cre­ate some sort of har­mo­ny.  Remem­ber, your par­ents real­ly do love you; they just have a weird way of show­ing it some­times!
  • When exams are done, they are done. The results can’t be changed and they are your results.  Com­par­ing your­self to oth­ers is often not help­ful for you or them.  You are all dif­fer­ent and will all get there in the end.
  • Learn from the expe­ri­ence, what worked for you and what might you need to change for next time. It is okay to fail an exam, it is not the end of the world, it might just sig­nal that some adjust­ments need to be made.

For more infor­ma­tion and some use­ful tools for par­ents and young peo­ple on exam stress, anx­i­ety and sur­viv­ing school or uni­ver­si­ty, have a look at the fol­low­ing:

What is real­ly impor­tant to remem­ber is that some feel­ings of being anx­ious are nor­mal.  Feel­ing anx­ious does not nec­es­sar­i­ly mean you have anx­i­ety.  Clin­i­cal anx­i­ety requires a diag­no­sis from a qual­i­fied med­ical pro­fes­sion­al and has cer­tain cri­te­ria which must be met.  Clin­i­cal anx­i­ety has a sig­nif­i­cant impact on your abil­i­ty to func­tion, dai­ly and over a peri­od of time or is extreme in cer­tain, sit­u­a­tion­al cir­cum­stances.  If you have any con­cerns about your­self or a loved one, a great place to start is your GP.

Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted…

Thursday, May 9th, 2019

Lone­li­ness and the feel­ing of being unwant­ed is the most ter­ri­ble pover­ty. – Moth­er Tere­sa

Human beings by nature are social crea­tures and there is a ben­e­fit in ‘run­ning with a pack’, as being part of a group increas­es safe­ty and resources. Some peo­ple are per­fect­ly hap­py in their soli­tude and for oth­ers, they can be sur­round­ed by hun­dreds of peo­ple and still feel ter­ri­bly and painful­ly alone. Some researchers sug­gest that the pain felt from lone­li­ness is designed to make you seek out oth­ers, to increase your well­be­ing and min­imise the risk of being iso­lat­ed.

Peo­ple who expe­ri­ence lone­li­ness describe a sense of empti­ness, worth­less­ness and lack con­nec­tion to oth­ers and lone­li­ness is a risk fac­tor for var­i­ous men­tal and phys­i­cal health prob­lems such as depres­sion, anx­i­ety, drug and alco­hol addic­tions, sui­ci­dal thoughts and behav­iours as well as obe­si­ty, com­pro­mised immu­ni­ty and vas­cu­lar con­di­tions.

We heard recent­ly from our Pres­i­dent Alis­tair Cook, how the impor­tance of feel­ing part of our Club and the sup­port received from our mem­bers has been invalu­able to him­self and his fam­i­ly as he bat­tles his diag­no­sis of can­cer.  Social move­ments such as Act, Belong, Com­mit, recog­nise that social net­works such as clubs and com­mu­ni­ty groups, can pro­vide valu­able oppor­tu­ni­ties to con­nect with oth­ers and build mean­ing­ful rela­tion­ships. Clubs pro­vide the oppor­tu­ni­ty to con­nect with oth­ers who share sim­i­lar inter­ests. They also pro­vide the oppor­tu­ni­ty to make a con­nec­tion at times when con­nec­tions get lost, such as peo­ple mov­ing away from fam­i­lies and fam­i­ly break­downs; when lives are chang­ing for exam­ple, when becom­ing a par­ent for the first time, or when loved ones become ill. For oth­ers, clubs pro­vide an oppor­tu­ni­ty to give back and share a life­time of knowl­edge and expe­ri­ences when work lives come to an end.

How­ev­er, often with­in clubs, sub-groups exist, that is groups of peo­ple who form mini-groups with­in a main group. Whilst it is human nature to mix with those who share sim­i­lar likes and val­ues, the sub-group often unin­ten­tion­al­ly makes it dif­fi­cult for new­com­ers to feel wel­come and ‘fit-in’.  We have all expe­ri­enced what it is like to turn up some­where where you know no-one, yet it appears every­one knows every­body else. How dif­fi­cult it can be to pluck up the courage to turn up hop­ing that some­one will wel­come you and say ‘hi’.  For some, it is far more dif­fi­cult to take this risk than for oth­ers, and the fear or expe­ri­ence of rejec­tion means that they will nev­er return again, mean­ing that the oppor­tu­ni­ty to build a new friend­ship is lost for all.

So, as our sum­mer activ­i­ties come to an end and new oppor­tu­ni­ties such as Phat Chix, evening swim­ming train­ing etc., com­mence, take time to wel­come new peo­ple into these groups.  Sim­ply by stop­ping to intro­duce your­self, wel­come some­one into the group and tak­ing those first steps to build a new rela­tion­ship, you may actu­al­ly be pos­i­tive­ly con­tribut­ing to chang­ing their phys­i­cal health and well­be­ing and the feel-good feel­ing that you will get, actu­al­ly increas­es your health too!

Aussies 2020 — Expression of Interest

Thursday, May 2nd, 2019

As the tem­per­a­ture cools on what has been an impres­sive sea­son for com­pe­ti­tion across all dis­ci­plines with­in the club, plan­ning is well under­way for the com­ing year.

To assist in some of the more crit­i­cal aspects of the plan­ning phase we are look­ing for Expres­sions of Inter­est from all com­peti­tors, par­ents and sup­port­ers, in all dis­ci­plines, who con­sid­er they would like to be part of Mul­laloo Surf Life Sav­ing Club’s AUSSIES 2020 ASSAULT!

There will be a gen­er­al meet­ing called lat­er in this month to dis­cuss in more detail the struc­ture and focus of the com­ing 12 months. Date and time will be advised via the club newslet­ter and social media plat­forms.

To help us mea­sure the size of The Aussies 2020 Assault please com­plete the below form and sub­mit.

What would we like to know?
