Sony Camp – medical volunteers

An invitation to Registered Nurses and Doctors to Volunteer at the Sony Foundation Children’s Holiday Camp 2017!

 Do you know of any nurses or doctors who might want to volunteer?

Stuartholme School and St. Laurence’s College are once again running the fantastic Sony Foundation Children’s Holiday Camp. As you may know this camp cannot be successful without the support of our wonderful medical volunteers. This camp provides much needed respite to families with disabled children, and a wonderful educational experience for our Year 11 & 12 students.

This year the camp will be held from Saturday 16 September through to Monday 18 September. The children will stay Saturday and Sunday nights in the boarding house at Stuartholme School and will be predominantly cared for by their student companions- Year 11 & 12 students from either Stuartholme or St. Laurence’s. In saying that, we do need medical & nursing staff to support the students and provide some medical care to the children.

Nurses need to be registered but not necessarily currently practicing. Doctors are only required to be on-call at the nominated times. Nursing staff from the Health Centre at Stuartholme will be present at all times during the camp to help and support volunteers. The feedback from previous years has been that it is a very fun and rewarding experience for all.

If anyone you know is a nurse or doctor and might like to volunteer, could you please kindly get them to fill in the attached form and return to as soon as possible, or feel free to forward this email on to them or send me their details so that I can contact them.

If they have any questions or concerns or difficulty completing the attached form, please feel free to contact me anytime on 3510 6420 or via return email.

We need at least four nurses per shift to provide support to the students and campers, so please send this to anyone who you think might be able to spare an hour or two. Please tell them to indicate all of their availability on the attached form, once I have all of the forms returned, I will work out a roster and email it out to everyone.

Thank you,
