St Peters Fellowship
We have a lot of Fun
Members of the Rotary club of St Peters do volunteer work raising funds and then spending the money on Community projects. Whilst doing this they enjoy much fun and fellowship. Members meet regularly and occasionally hold a combined meeting with other clubs.
This group photo was taken at the combined meeting with the Kent Town club.
Major Club Projects
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 2019 three students, Ashlee Leach, Charlotte Zhang and Aaditya Mangla were attendees of NYSF. and they have given comprehensive reports about their experiences.
All tree described how they were expecting dry lectures and full time study, but they all expressed surprise at the fun and laughter that went with the study. From their arrival the fun started and continued for the fourteen days.
Amongst the frivolity they met and dined with senior scientists, performed hands on experiments (they blew stuff up!) and attended interesting lectures in their chosen study field.
All of these students declared their delight at having been to NYSF, and expressed their thanks to The Rotary Club of St Peters for the sponsorship that sent them there and all spoke in a confident and articulate manner.

Our Club sponsors the 'All Kids' Dental Clinic that treats the rural children around Sihanoukville in Cambodia. 

On a flying visit from Cambodia Paul Otto called in to give us a quick update on the happenings at the school, particularly with the dental service.

The dental facilities have been upgraded at the school and starting now all of the students will be receiving dental care up to permanent fillings (level 3 treatment).

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.

For 17 years, the Rotary Club of St Peters has been presenting selected local secondary school students with a monetary contribution to assist them with their studies. They perform at the Annual Music Night Concert. The 2018 the concert was held in "The Forge' at the Marryatville High School.

A half hour video of the night can be viewed or downloaded from -


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.

President's Message
Since our previous Club Assembly in October our club members, volunteers and friends have as usual been very active in raising money through our efforts in the shed to be able to contribute strongly in the Rotary Avenues of service.
We have also had fun with the meeting at the Lord Melbourne for Melbourne Cup Day and we all had a chuckle when Shirley took over the meeting and asked three people to talk for one minute on a subject just presented to them. Also, as usual being the resourceful group we are it was a fun Christmas celebration at the shed instead at John and Anthea’s back lawn due to the threatening weather. John and Anthea did not want the evening to go without some fellowship at their place so most of us had an enjoyable late evening back at their place – after cleaning up the shed!
A highlight was our joint meeting with the Rotary Club of Kent Town at the Hackney Hotel which was well attended by members.
Thanks to all that helped on the Friday Twilight Carols in the Park – it was not a big night, but fellowship won out!

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 –
