CURTIN Stadium physiotherapist and accredited exercise physiologist Rosie Sciacca has been awarded a Rotary Pride of Workmanship Award.
Instigated in 1975, Pride of Workmanship is an approved vocational Rotary project which aims to help employees achieve the goal of job satisfaction, ‘go the extra mile’ and publicly recognise them for their efforts.
Mill Point Rotary Club member Colin Philip nominated Ms Sciacca for this year’s awards.
He said over the five years he had been attending Curtin Gym he recognised the exceptional professionalism and friendly manner Ms Sciacca showed with each and every client.
“Rosie has a beaming smile and lovely manner, especially with the seniors who attend her stretching and mini yoga classes after their regular workouts; they absolutely adore her,” he said.
“She spends time with everybody, chatting about their lives and their fitness goals, and motivates them with her gorgeous smile and her infectious personality.”
Last year Ms Sciacca won a Curtin University Vice-Chancellors award for the Paediatric Active Enhanced Disease Surveillance program, which works with children who have disabilities and chronic conditions.
Ms Sciacca said she felt very honoured to have received the Pride of Workmanship Award.
Other Mill Point Rotary Club awardees include Diesel Motors’ Joel Mitton, ANZ South Perth branch’s Sue Johnson, LD Total Landscaping’s Brugh McDonald and Food Rescue’s Lillian Donald.
Mr Mitton said being recognised for his work by Rotary was a huge honour and something he greatly appreciated.
“Receiving the nomination and then the award for Pride of Workmanship from the Mill Point Rotary Club came as a huge surprise and it was an absolute honour,” he said.
