Fol­low Pi­rate Pete to trea­sure trove of fun

Cockburn Gazette - - STREET WATCH -

ROT­TNEST Is­land vol­un­teers will play the parts of Pi­rate Pete and his as­sis­tant as part of school hol­i­day ac­tiv­i­ties on the is­land over the next two weeks.

De­spite don­ning the hat and swing­ing the sword last week, Rot­tnest Vol­un­teer Guides As­so­ci­a­tion vice-pres­i­dent Lyn LeProvost will stick to as­sist­ing the star of the show for is­land vis­i­tors.

Mrs LeProvost said she loved see­ing the joy on the faces of the chil­dren, es­pe­cially when they saw Pi­rate Pete.

“The kids lov­ing chas­ing him around the set­tle­ment, pick­ing up the gold and throw­ing him off the end of the plank,” she said.

Pi­rate Pete is among sev­eral ac­tiv­i­ties co-or­di­nated by Rot­tnest Is­land Au­thor­ity project man­ager Rebecca Smith over the next fort­night.

“There’s the Lakes Eco Walk, Cre­ative Quokkas and the Rotto Rat Race,” Miss Smith, who has worked on the is­land for two years, said.

“The vol­un­teers put on ex­tra tours es­pe­cially for the school hol­i­day pro­gram and the quiz night is re­ally pop­u­lar.”
