Lions Club of Rocky Cape conducted their third annual vision screening session at St Peter Chanel Catholic Primary in March 2023. During the screening session, a member of the teaching staff approached the Lions group. With great delight, and expressing sincere thanks, the staff member informed the screening team that out of nine children referred to an Optometrist for follow up, after screenings in 2022, five were now wearing glasses! The teacher continued explaining that, picking up the eye concerns has also made a very significant difference to these children in the classroom.
Well done Screening Instructor Anne Fagg and Rocky Cape Screening team. In the words of Archie’s mother, “If it hadn’t been for the screening, we would never have picked up that Archie had a problem with his vision”. Again Lions are out in their community – making a difference!
