Welcome to Terrigal Rotary   

Greg Hooper  

President 2018 - 19

December is here, the end of the year is near.  Please look at coming to our next two meetings at the Rotary Club of Terrigal. 


Top VIP speakers, and you will find that we are a service organisation where members give their time, talent and resources to help make the Central Coast community and communities around the world - a better place to live in.  Terrigal Rotary's mission is particularly focused on youth service and developing our young leaders of the future.  Most of all we have fun, we learn and we know we make a big difference in our local community and a global level as well!

When Rotarians get involved, it's not just our community and the wider world that benefit - we all benefit from the fellowship and have great fun doing it!  Join us and experience the satisfaction, sense of accomplishment and fulfilment of making a difference in the world.

Dear Jill,
I’m writing to say a huge THANK YOU for supporting our Donate a Desk campaign to help 320 Ugandan children start school in January.
In just 7 days, we’ve raised $39,703 towards our $48,500 goal to provide desks, chairs, stationary packs and uniforms to give these kids the chance to go to school and get an education.
The response so far has been incredible. It’s so exciting.
Because getting these kids in the classroom next year is the first step to helping them break the cycle of poverty to create a better future for themselves.
As they say, ‘from little things, big things grow.’ 😊
I started School For Life Foundation 10 years ago because I believe every child deserves an education, and I’m so proud of what we’ve achieved. We’re only a small charity, but we’re making a big impact to change these kids’ lives.
And Jill, our work is only possible with your generous support, thank you so much.

Please don’t hesitate to call me on (02) 9299 2624 or email me at if you have any questions or want to learn more about our work.
Have a wonderful day.
P.S. Our 10th anniversary is this Wednesday and we’re working on something very special, so stay tuned and get ready to help us celebrate turning 10 years old!

Education changes everything.

About a year ago a twinning arrangement was entered into between the Rotary Club of Terrigal and Helderburg Sunrise Rotary Club.  Since that time the twinning committees of the two clubs have held regular Zoom video meetings.  Indeed at one time Terrigal Rotary was invited to and joined the weekly meeting of Helderburg Sunrise via Zoom.  This was good fun and it is hoped we can return the compliment one day.  The Presidents of our Rotaract Clubs have also attended our Zoom meetings with the hope they will also twin.
Our two club have shared regular news letters and ideas for new projects and fund raising opportunities.  The clubs are in fact looking for a joint project.  Water projects have been discussed but nothing decided yet.
A major accomplishment has been our Youth Home Exchange project.  Indeed on the 10th December after a very long journey, Louise Wait arrived from South Africa to stay with a host family in North Avoca.  A teacher of Terrigal High School, Dale Massie, recommended Holly Ayres as a possibility for Home Exchange with Louise Wait.  Holly’s mother Caroline has wholehearted embraced the the project and and put in an enormous amount of time to bring it to fruition.  Caroline simply couldn’t have done more to make the exchange happen.  Caroline, her husband and two daughters will host Louise for a month and Holly Ayres will go to South Africa in April.  Holly is very excited.  Our Club will welcome Louise when both Louise and Holly attend our meeting on 16.12.18. 
It is also hoped that Rotarians from Terrigal will visit South Africa in Spring 2019 with Helderburg Sunrise Rotarians visiting us inAutumn 2020. 
Thanks to the support of Club members and our growing network of Friends of Terrigal Rotary we had enough people power to setup, run and pack up the November Book Sale.   It was hard work, but the reward was to fund equipment for Aspect School's Secondary Campus, and as well we had a lot of fun fellowship. If you took any photos of the book sale with people inside, please send them through to the Editor for promoting the April Book Sale.
Ah very, very good David.  Congrats and I look forward to being part of this initiative.

Good afternoon Alan
Terrigal Rotary’s focus is developing the personal leadership of our youth through sponsoring individual’s attendance at Rotary and non-Rotary youth related programs such as RYLA, RYPEN, MUNA and Top Blokes.
Our aspiration is to sponsor a satellite Rotaract Club for RYLAians which in turn would attract other young professionals and community minded individuals who have leadership potential. 
Our thinking is that RYLAians having the shared experience of attending RYLA creates a cohort who are attracted to and have a mutual understanding of community service together with an appreciation of the benefits of participating in personal development opportunities.  Further that these shared values and understandings can be fostered to enable the young adults through Rotaract to make a difference locally, nationally and internationally and build friendships and networks.
Terrigal Rotary is interested in:
  • promoting Rotaract at the 2019 RYLA
  • directly communicating with the 2019 RYLA candidates from the Central Coast
  • directly communicating with RYLAians sponsored by the Central Coast Rotary Clubs
It is our intention to host a meeting of the Rotaract Alumni late February to explore their interest in forming a Rotaract Club.  An invitation would be be extended through the Rotary Clubs on the Central Coast to encourage young adults from their networks to attend the discussion meeting.
I will give you a call mid-week to talk about Terrigal Rotary’s goal of encouraging and supporting a Rotaract Club for RYLA alumni.
Yours in Rotary

Our Fifth Thursday Family Fun Night was a tremendous success at Sapa Modern Vietnamese Restaurant, Wamberal. Our social secretary, Andrew surveyed members to find out what events they wanted to do, and Sapa came out number one. Andrew arranged the owner, Allan to explain some of the dishes, and even to create a dish with our hands at the table.

It was fun, with friendly banter and the food kept coming. Thank you Andrew and Allan.

We have our Christmas Party at Mary's place on the 20th Dec, our first New Year meeting at Bill's place on 10th Jan, and with our RYLA students and parents a BBQ at Rotary Terrigal Park on our next Ffith Thursday in January 2019. These two activities came in as a close second and third for family fun events from the survey by Club members Greggo

So you can hear one of Australia's up and coming speakers - Robyn Ratcliff - who gave brilliant presentation at the WEF Conference in LA just yesterday.   Robyn was listed as the top billed speaker at the prestigious WEF conference in LA last week? From all reports she was an outstanding success, and said she was thrilled with this experience.   More to come on the response to Robyn's address.

BTW you can hear Robyn speak in Terrigal at our New Year's Opening Meeting on Thursday 17th January, 2019 at Breakers Wamberal.

Please contact terrigalrotarians on facebook to be advised of our VIP speaker program at a minimal cost of $25 with a meal, or a $10 donation including coffee and tea.  


So now she has two international events to her credit, and that is our own Social Media guru, business woman and a dynamic dynamo of the business management consulting circuit - that is Robyn Ratcliff, who we just know as Robyn!  Andrew and Robyn we are so proud of you both for being so generous with your time, energy and enthusiasm to our Club despite having busy and demanding lives. You truly live the creed : "service above self" in your family and community lives; and of giving" pride of workmanship" in your careers and club service.

We have our Christmas Party at Mary's place on the 20th Dec.   Unfortunately for Mary, the sheet similar to the one below did not get back to either Mary or Andrew.  This has happened several times to my knowledge including one member putting a sheet being handed around in his folder???   If you see a pass around sheet please look at it, and remember that sometimes there are several items on the one folder, so look through it.

Our first New Year meeting at Bill and Norma's place on 10th Jan.   If you are coming, please fill in the sheet at the meeting.

Also, with our RYLA students and parents, we have a BBQ at Rotary Terrigal Park on our next Fifth Thursday in January 2019. These two activities came in as a close second and third for family fun events from the survey by Club members  


Harley visited Qurindi with his old Galston Club mates last week, and gave the farmers some cheer and cake on behalf the Rotary Club of Terrigal.  He sent in this article of Breeza Station, where Breeza was once home to Ben Hall's family.  A lot of history in this beautiful valley on the Liverpool Plains.  Farming has come a long way since the early days of the Clift family settling there in the 1830's.

 Terrigal Bush Care, twelve months of progress.
Over the last twelve months our bush care group has worked on bush restoration on the western end of Terrigal Rotary Park. Our group of six volunteers work with a qualified supervisor provided by the Central Coast Council. The Council also provides basic equipment and training.
Most of the time the work is to slowly and carefully remove introduced weeds. Sometimes it’s difficult to notice significant changes in the work area. Recently this changed as Council funds were used to hire contractors to remove thick vegetation near the Shell Garage roundabout. This complemented work the Bush Care group had already undertaken further into the reserve where lantana had spread along the edge of a man made storm water drain running from Terrigal Drive to the lake. If your driving or walking along Terrigal Drive it’s now possible to see all the way to the lake edge.
Terrigal Bush Care meets every third Tuesday of the month at 9.00am on the western end of Rotary Park. New members are always welcome. Contact John on 0411176364.


 We have helped to re-form the Terrigal Bushcare Group with the Council.
We meet now, on 2nd Tuesday of the month, with a supervisor, Susie, and attack the weeds at the
west end of Terrigal Rotary Park.
Please come along and swell our numbers, so we can make a difference to the lagoon wetlands,
forest floor, and help the mid-level plants provide cover for the native fauna.
                          Just ring John on 0411 176 564.
