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.

Club President 2018-19             Brian Kretschmer
President's Message
 
Rotary International President Barry Rassin’s theme for this Rotary year is “Be the Inspiration”. District Governor Elect Kim Harvey introduced Barry and the theme to those of us who attended the District Assembly in Murray Bridge last month. I particularly noticed the passion that Kim delivered the theme to us.
 
One of the takeaways for me was the passion to inspire ideas or idea generation for our club - listen to everyone and not disregard anything. No suggestion is a wrong suggestion. Our club has a long tradition of successful events and projects in the avenues of service. I will be enthusiastically supporting all Rotarians to continue in this direction. If someone comes up with thoughts on how to do things differently we should all listen and decide together as a club what to do.
 
We will have challenges in the future, but it is the members of this club and those before us that have made this the successful and great Rotary Club it is today. I am in awe of the club I have walked into – 60 years of service just celebrated and a list of achievements that would take far too long to mention. To maintain this level of contribution we must therefore look after us as the members, as without us we would not be able to give what we give to the community both local and internationally.
 
Coming to know what goes on at the Linde Shed and all that is needed to keep it running shows we also have a strong support base in our volunteers who also might have ideas, I’m sure.
 
 

We need Your Help

 
Does your Community Project need funds for –
 
- Youth at-risk 
- Literacy 
- Poverty and Hunger 
- Environment 
- Education Events 
- Community Safety 
 
If so the Rotary Club of St Peters may be able to assist.
 
Our Club members put in a lot of voluntary work to raise money, mainly through sales at the Rotary Shed. This money is used to support Community Projects, and a proportion of that money is available by request. We receive far more requests than we can support, so there are guidelines set by the Club so as to concentrate on areas of real need within our Community.
 
A copy of these guidelines, including an application form, can be downloaded from our website by following this link –
