We are pleased to announce that Trinity College has been lucky enough to secure President of Surf Lifesaving Queensland, Mark Fife, as our Father’s Day guest speaker for 2017.
 
Mark is a highly decorated surf lifesaver who has been inducted into Surf Life Saving Australia Hall of Fame (2015), was named Australian Surf Life Saver of the Year (1997), Australian Volunteer of the Year (2007), and has been bestowed an Order of Australia Medal (2003) for his service to the community through leadership roles.
The Fife family have been active in surf lifesaving for three generations now, starting with Fife’s father Jack back in 1936, continuing with Mark who joined in the 1970’s, and now with Mark’s son Nathan who is currently the Gold Coast Life Saving Services Co-ordinator.
 
Mark will be disclosing his experiences both as a volunteer and as a father and grandfather at the Father's Day breakfast on 31 August, 2017.
