WELCOME TO WYNNUM WIPEOUT

Wynnum Wipeout is a holiday program for young people in the Wynnum Manly area who will be in grade 6 to grade 12 in the year the program runs.

The program is run from our base in the school hall at Wynnum State High School, Peel Street Manly.

Started in 1994 by the Chaplains at Wynnum and the then Wynnum North High Schools the program was designed to give kids something to do in the school holidays.  Over 25 years later we think it is still the best way to finish the school holidays.

Wyyum Wipeout is managed by volunteers from the local churches and run under the banner of Scripture Union.  

WW2022 UPDATES

UPDATE 3 – COVID ANNOUNCEMENT – 7 Jan

Dear Parents,

We are very saddened to inform you that we have made the decision to cancel Wynnum Wipeout 2022.

This decision was made after lengthy discussions with Scripture Union and our leadership team and taking into account a number of factors including isolating potential close contacts, difficulty in obtaining testing materials and speedy results, and the current QLD Chief Health Officer advising people to limit their travel with rapidly increased spread.  

We realise the impact this may have on families and carers at this time and apologise for any inconvenience that it may cause.

A full refund of camp fees will be issues next week.

We would like to thank you for the trust and ongoing support you give to the program.  It is the highlight of our year to be able to serve you through this program and we look forward to bringing it back to you in 2023.

If you have any questions or need further information please email us at wynnumwipeout@gmail.com


Many thanks
Paul
Wynnum Wipeout Director

UPDATE 2

JAN 5 –
We are currently discussing how viable proceeding with the program is for next week with the recent spate of COVID cases. Some concerns have been raised and we need to take the time to discuss them clearly.

As much as we want to run the program, we must put safety first.

We are in discussions with Scripture Union and our leaders and will be finalising our discussions and decision tomorrow evening after which we will release an update both on email, Website and the Facebook page.

If you have any questions or concerns please email us at wynnumwipeout@gmail.com

Many thanks

Paul

Wynnum Wipeout Director

UPDATE 1

Covid restrictions are still an impact in 2022.  Mask mandates and check in processes are currently in place and Wynnum Wipeout will comply with these rules.

Please note that due to a shortage of leaders this year due to the impacts of COVID we will be reviewing activities and may need to cancel activities along the way.  We apologise in advance for the inconvenience.

We are live:  Head to the Register Page in the menu to book for WW22.

LEADERS NEEDED

If we can not get more leaders we will have to cancel some activities.

Due to the impacts of COVID we have a number of our regular leaders who have changed jobs and can not get the time to come to Wipeout this year.  If you are available for any time between 10-15 January and have any time (half a day to full week or anything in between) we would love to hear from you.

As we run under the banner of Scripture Union leaders need to meet certain requirements including a connection to a church and undergo a short training session.  If you are able to support the program with your time please email wynnumwipeout@gmail.com so we can connect and ensure we run the program to its fullest capacity. (It’s all good – you don’t have to end up on activities with your kids)
