Powerman's Last Player of the Week!

June 22, 2015
powerman POW logo-01Powerman has selected his fifth and final 'Player of the Week', with RORY SINGER taking out the prestigious title!

Rory was nominated for Powerman's Player of the Week by Nicky Singer because...

Rory (7) deserves to be Powerman's Player of the week as he is so passionate about his rugby. He leads by example on and off the field, just last week he made a break and ran the length of the rugby field only to wait by the try line to pass to his team mate that hadn't yet scored a try. So far this season he has scored over 20 tries and continues to train hard, at home and at school to become a future Magpie and hurricane :). He is a lovely boy and tries his hardest in everything he does.

Congratulations Rory - we hope you enjoy the Unison goodies and $50 Rebel Sport voucher!

That's a wrap for this years Powerman Player of the Week competition - thank you to all those who entered and a big congratulations to our five winners; Zane, Paige, Jack, Jayda and Rory!

Mission Complete for Ella Manning!

June 15, 2015
Unison's Greatest Supporter for May, Ella Manning has successfully completed her mission for the month, after submitting an outstanding song about electrical safety!

Having been tasked with a safety focussed ‘mission’, to write a song, rap or poem around electrical safety, Ella took inspiration for her song lyrics from the safety messages on Unison's public website.

We visited Ella and Room 17 at Frimley School earlier this week to film all the action!

With teacher, Mr Russ on the guitar and Ella's classmates on backing vocals, Ella performed her electrical safety song to the tune of Stan Walker's hit song, 'Take it Easy'!

WOW, were we blown away - Ella's song rocked!

YOU CAN CHECK OUT ELLA'S VIDEO HERE

Ella also received her cool prize pack, which included a Rebel Sport voucher, Lego and a little something for mum and dad too!
 

ELLA'S ELECTRICAL SAFETY SONG LYRICS!


Verse 1

Unison, safety first,
don’t go near a power box
don’t fly kites in to power poles
stay away from fallen lines

Pre Chorus
Call before you cut
be careful where you dig
keep yourself safe
so just check it all out, check it all out

Chorus
You gotta check your sockets, switches, cords and lights.
Heaters and blankets
Appliances
You’ll be fine
x2

Verse 2
Climbing poles, is not safe
fly a kite well away
Be safe around electricity
it can travel through and give you a shock

(Chorus) (Pre-Chorus)
