Teaching the teachers
Extract from article by Arnold R Grahl on the RI website

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

A morning tea picnic at Blenheim Park was held on Saturday 13 June. The weather was just right for the event. It was lovely to see so many members, partners and families attend. We hope there will be more face-to-face get togethers now the restrictions are starting to ease. Thank you to Mandy Van and Bernie Mason for the excellent photos! More photos are in the photo album section of this bulletin.
There are a numbers of these Barrels placed in shops and businesses in the community by the Rotary Clubs of Macquarie Park and North Ryde.

Rotary is a worldwide organisation of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders. Members of Rotary clubs, known as Rotarians, provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

There are 34,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Clubs are non-political, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto “Service above Self”, Rotary’s main objective is service — in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.


The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

•FIRST: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;

•SECOND: High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society;

•THIRD: The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life;

•FOURTH: The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.



Of the things we think, say & do:

1. Is it the truth?
2. Is it fair to all concerned?
3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?

4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?


 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.
