Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Sport -

ED­U­CAT­ING Aus­tralia in wa­ter safety since 1934, the Royal Life Sav­ing So­ci­ety WA (RLSSWA) ex­celled at the 2014 Sport and Recre­ation In­dus­try Awards re­cently.

The RLSSWA won two out of the three cat­e­gories it was nom­i­nated for. The so­ci­ety was awarded The Cre­at­ing a Bet­ter Work­force Award along­side The Min­is­ter’s Award for In­dus­try Ex­cel­lence as the most out­stand­ing fi­nal­ist from all award cat­e­gories.

Alex McKen­zie said it was fan­tas­tic to fi­nally be recog­nised for the broad work they did in the so­ci­ety.

Pres­i­dent Ross Peters ac­cepted the $10,000 win­ning cheque on be­half of the or­gan­i­sa­tion on July 30 and said the award would not have been pos­si­ble with­out the on­go­ing support of the State Gov­ern­ment.

McKen­zie will re­tire at the end of this year but said he was ex­cited to re­main in­volved with RLSSWA as a board mem­ber.
