National Youth Science Forum
Each year the Rotary Club of St Peters calls for nominations from students to attend the National Youth Science Forum. The successful students are funded by the Club to attend the NYSF. In 2018 two students were successful and they have given comprehensive reports about their experiences.
National Youth Science Forum report by Anuradha Pati - January 2018
'The two weeks spent in Brisbane, at NYSF, were the best two weeks of my life. Not only did I learn of astounding scientific concepts, but I also met and befriended some of the most inspiring individuals I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. During the application process, I heard, from NYSF-alumni, that the science camp changed their lives. Having become an NYSF-alumni now, I agree wholeheartedly with the sentiment – NYSF changed my life in more ways that I thought possible.'    Full report can be downloaded from -
National Youth Science Forum report by Aaron Wu - January 2018
'The NYSF was a hectic experience, from dinners at the National Museum, to videoconferences with CERN physicists, bus rides filled with chants, and lectures from some of the most influential international researchers. The program I attended was session A from the 2 of January to the 13th of January in Canberra. First of all, I had never been to Canberra before NYSF so that in itself was eye opening, visiting a new city. However, NYSF provided much more than just a new city to explore. One of the favourite aspects of NYSF was definitely being able to listen to amazing world class researchers and leaders in their respective fields.'         Full report can be downloaded from -
The Rotary Club of St Peters is a proud supporter of the K9 program and contributes a significant amount of money to assist with the training of the K9 dogs. The assistance dogs are from the same breeding stock that the guide dogs are selected from and are Labrador, Golden Retriever or a Lab GR cross. These breeds are chosen as they are calm, loyal, willing and socially accepted. The dogs are trained to help their client in many ways and can detect and respond to many needs. The dogs are very special, expensive to train ($25,000) and have a working life of nine to ten years.

The Rotary Club of St Peters supports children with severe and multiple disabilities.

The Club assisted two Master Occupational Therapy students at the University of South Australia to redevelop the St Morris Unit in the Trinity Gardens Primary School.


For many years the Rotary Club of St Peters has recognised senior students, selected by their teachers, for excellence in vocational school subjects. Rotarians have enjoyed seeing the work these young people have produced and hearing how and why they developed the diverse and skilful articles.
