What has our Club been doing?
On Friday 2 June, 2017  Binoe Verghese was inducted as a member of our club.  Allen Horrell, Assistant District Governor from Riverside very kindly attended and helped with the induction.  We welcome Binoe to our friendly club.  
 
The Rotary Club of North Ryde runs an annual tour, in May, of local technology based companies for students from Country NSW.  We have been running the programme for 12 years or so.
We work with Rotary clubs in West Wyalong, Forbes and Inverell to source suitable students from year 10 at their local high schools.  We take up to 8 students each year.  The students travel down to Sydney on the Sunday and are then hosted by Rotarians through until Friday morning when they return home. The idea is to provide the students with an insight into not only how technology is used in the workplace but what job opportunities there are available to them after school.

This year Rotarians took 6 Country NSW students Lane Blunsdon, Bobby Wighton, Tessa Pymont, Joshua Penhall, Lucy Holland and German exchange student, Lukas Ciroth  on a series of visits to technology based companies including Microsoft, Oracle, Cisco, IBM and Google and other major companies which use technology in their businesses including Coles, Optus, Cochlear and Konica Minolta.  They also saw how technology is used within the Universities of UTS and Macquarie and the Sydney Observatory.
 
Here are some photos from this year's visit. For more photos see here and for photos of the farewell dinner see here.

 Did you know for a once-off payment of $100 you can become a Friend of Australian Rotary Health for life?
As the end of the year draws near does your club want to honour someone who has made a special contribution? Are you looking for a gift for someone who has everything? Make them a Friend of Australian Rotary Health and in so doing support medical research in Australia. It is as simple as phoning 8837 1900.
