Old Wesleyans Alex Au Yong (00-12), Angus Paterson (08-12) and Dale Atkinson (99-11) have carried Wesley's 'Men For Others' into their lives as tertiary students at UWA.
Early this morning (17 April 2013) they were in the Angelo Street car park selling Prosh papers to the many adults at the Sports Centre as well as to parents as they drop off students. Here they caught staff member, Stephen George, on his early morning rounds.
A bit of Prosh history:
In 1931, a small group of students compiled a small, satirical newspaper called the "SRUSS SRUSS Times" of humorous but possibly offensive content, as part of graduation-time shenanigans. Later in that week, thePerthnewspaperThe Sunday Timesberated the creators of this newspaper, calling it trash and filth, and the creators were subsequently penalised, in the form of a fine payable to the local children's charity. Evidently, this punishment wasn't effective, as the tradition of publishing a satirical humour of 'ill taste' continues to this day, 80 years later, however in a much larger and slightly more organised fashion.
Currently, PROSH (which is now one of the oldest UWA traditions) is kept alive by volunteers writing, editing and distributing the newspaper annually in April - all in the name of fundraising. Each year a new group of charities are chosen as the beneficiaries of all money raised by Prosh. In 2011, Prosh took place on 13 April and while counting continues, has so far made roughly $153,000 for charity, breaking all previous records.
