HAYLEY'S HERALD
 
Thank you to Nicole Schiller for taking us through a breathing exercise last week, it’s amazing how relaxed you can be when you take a minute or two to just stop.
 
Following from the events of last week it has come to our attention that we don’t have a list of everyone’s “In case of emergency” contact. Can I please ask everyone to pass on the name and number of your chosen contact to Mary-Ann? Please don’t assume that someone will know it.
 
I would also like to applaud everyone present last week for the role they played. We had people jump into action when needed and everyone else stayed in their seats quietly, but mostly the room was full of concern.
 
Don’t forget our End Polio Movie Night “I Am Woman” the Helen Reddy story – streamed via Stan – not Netflix and to be held in the comfort of your own home (or someone who has a Stan subscription) $10.00 per person paid to the services account please.

Realising that getting children into schools isn't enough to solve illiteracy, Rotary shifts to mentoring and coaching teachers

By 
 
On Carolyn Johnson’s second visit to the central highlands of Guatemala, she met a first-grade teacher who made a shocking confession. Before taking part in the Guatemala Literacy Project, the teacher was convinced that her students could not learn to read.
“She said ‘We were willing to go through the program because it was a day out of class and you gave us books and you provided us with a nice lunch, but we knew that you were crazy,’ ” says Johnson, a Rotarian who helped design the curriculum for the project and now serves as a technical adviser for the Guatemala Literacy Project

That teacher and more than a hundred of her colleagues each received several in-classroom coaching sessions over eight months. They learned how to replace rote memorization drills and repetition of words on a blackboard with exercises that engage their students in critical thinking.
 
“She went on to tell me excitedly how 45 of her 50 students were moving on to second grade because they had learned to read,” Johnson says. “The program has made believers out of 90 percent of the teachers we have worked with. They are excited about being teachers again, and they go into their classrooms believing they can make a difference.”
 
After decades of investing in literacy projects, experts have realized that simply getting children into the classroom — either by removing attendance barriers or providing supplies — is not enough. Before students can succeed, the quality of the teaching in that classroom needs to improve.
 

Teachers receive a certificate of completion after finishing the Nepal Teacher Training Innovations program. The program is transforming classrooms into centres of active learning, says Director Ashley Hager, front row right.

‘You Have a Friend’ packing of gift packs
Jeannie reported working bee for packing of gift packs last week went well thanks to good number of members attending.
Still happy to receive donated items such as shampoos etc but also time to think about Christmas items.
All items can be left at Maybury Meldrum Anderson offices during business hours or brought to our meetings.
 
Community Service
Jeannie reported the club is looking at making community service donation. One thought was to help Kunghur community purchase a defibrillator to have available locally. Board is looking into it.
 
NSW Rotary Volunteers Awards - Fire and Rescue
It was announced Captain Mark Eddington of the local Rural Bush Fire and Rescue Group has been nominated in the finalists of this year’s awards. He spoke to our club in the last year in the midst of the bush fire season.
 
Guest Speaker – Nicole Schiller – Breathing Exercises
Nicole ( Julie’s daughter) explained how as a result of some overwhelming issues in her life as a busy working mum she came to learn about the real benefits of deep breathing exercises and has found them to be a wonderful way to take some time out and de-stress. It can be a form of meditation.
Nicole has now become an instructor in these techniques.
Deep breathing activates the Vegus nerve in our body which has a major impact on how our body functions and how we ultimately feel. Breath work takes practice and can be done at any time. The effects are different for everybody and Nicole warned that people with heart and/or lung issues should seek medical advice before undertaking deep breathing exercises.
Nicole then ran a practical demonstration of breathing skills which all participated in for about 10 minutes.
All went well, except Helen became very faint at the end and needed to be laid on the floor and attended to by Nurse Mary until the Paramedics arrived and took her off to hospital.
The meditative euphoria of the breathing exercises dissipated fairly quickly and that kind of ended the meeting.
Not quite the outcome we all expected and certainly Nicole was very shocked and concerned as of course we all were.
One of the more eventful meetings we have had.
Postscript: Helen was taken to hospital really as a precaution and after a couple of hours was deemed fit and well to go home. No real explanation could be identified – just one of those things that happens.
 
Lionel.
