Super Dad Competition!

In the lead-up to Father’s Day we celebrated all of the amazing dads in our community. Our annual ‘Super Dad’ competition invited daughters, sons, sisters, brothers, wives and friends to nominate the Super Dad in their life.

Whether it’s teaching their children how to kick a footy, instilling life values, or being there to offer unwavering support when their family needs it most, there are countless reasons why dads are superheroes – without the cape!

Meet the 2021 Super Dad winner, Wayne!  

Wayne and his family.

Wayne was nominated by his wife Teena, below is the nomination she wrote: 
“Wayne is definitely a Super Dad with six children.We have a daughter with cancer who was diagnosed 14 months ago, and we also have an 18-year-old with dementia.

It’s been a really tough year with our youngest in hospital 22 weeks out of 52, leaving my husband to deal with our other five children at home including the one with dementia who needs full-time care.

Juggling appointments and our family business which he also has had to run solo, having trips from Woodcroft to the Women’s and Children’s Hospital most days as well as fitting his work and appointments in too. He’s been so tired but keeps going, especially when four times in last 14 months we were told we could lose our daughter.

He is the rock who keeps us all going with his calm, quiet demeanour. We just couldn’t have got through this last year without this wonderful man.”
