How To prosh
BUY A PROSH! We recommend you carry your PROSH paper with you for the whole day - not only will you be displaying your PROSH pride but it will alert our enthusiastic PROSH paper sellers to your purchase.
Those Far Away
Even if you're not in the immediate Perth area you can still get involved with PROSH! Contact our amazing Directors if you would like to submit articles, buy a paper or want to spread the love of Prosh!
Contact the PROSH Facebook page for ways you can participate - from club and faculty society themes, to marshalling, writers' nights and layout weekend there's plenty of fun times to go around!
Wednesday 22 March 2017
5am: FREE BREAKFAST RAVE
CRANK UP and RAVE TO THE GRAVE before you go out selling. We have also organised breakfast so get in early or miss out!
6am: COLLECT PAPERS
Pick up your papers and tins from Oak Lawn – your UWA student card is needed to sign out tins.
6.30am: BOARD BUSES
Buses will be taking clubs and faculty societies to different locations all across Perth, so get on and start selling. You can also head to Stirling Highway to jump on a Transperth bus - bring your Smart Rider - but you cannot sell papers on public transport at any time.
7am: SELL PAPERS
Shake your money maker (... your tin) and raise as much as you can for the 2017 charities. Make sure to follow the code of conduct rules (AKA Jedi Code) while you are selling papers.
11am: ENTERTAINMENT & RE-STOCK
Gather in Forrest Place for live music, to watch skits, and hear from our charities. Contact your closest marshal or pop by Forrest Place to restock papers and swap out FULL tins for a new one. Empty/ partially full tins will not be accepted. NOTE: UWA classes resume at 12pm
Gather in Forrest Place then follow the marshals and parade through the city streets. Making noise is encouraged.
2pm: PROSH BALL
Head to the Tav and reward yourself for a hard day’s PROSHing. ID required, 18+ venue. Enjoy happy hour priced drinks for costumed students and chilled music.
Don’t drive tired. Look after your friends. Make sure to return your tin to the UWA Student Guild by 4pm on Wednesday 22nd March.
