Rotary Supporting Drought Stricken Farmers .

 
 
 
After a 7 year drought, it's very clear that our Farmers and their families, the backbone of Australia, are doing it exceptionally tough.
The National Farmers' Federation, Channel 9 & Rotary in Australia will work together to raise much needed funds from the very generous Australian public.
The National Farmers' Federation will then be able to access these funds and provide support to approved organisations, helping Farmers through this difficult time.
Channel Nine will extensively promote the Australia-wide fund raiser on The Today program, ACA and in news bulletins in the coming days and weeks, expecting to raise around $10 million.

Highlights of the 2018 Rotary International Convention - Speech by Princess Anne 

At the recent Rotary International Convention held in Toronto, Canada on 24th June last, Rotary  members received a regal thank you from Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal, Princess Anne, for their work in fighting polio. The Toronto Convention lived up to the reputation of all Rotary International Conventions by providing the very best of speakers, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Laura Bush and Princess Anne. 20 Rotarians from D9675 attended and they’ve all come home fired up.
 
The Princess Royal is truly a remarkable woman and role model. 
 
                 

The popular Engadine Street Festival is on again and Engadine Rotary will be there too.

 
 
On the 28th May last , the Rotary Club of Engadine in association  with the School of Hospitality at the  Loftus Campus of TAFE
celebrated 20  years of presenting awards to final year students who had completed courses conducted by the School of Hospitality.
 
The object of this Rotary program  is to promote excellence in the Hospitality  Industry through TAFE and since 1998, Engadine  Rotary has presented awards  to 83 students.
 
Initially the awards were based on work submitted by applying students  detailing their employment history within the Industry, their leadership and development roles within and external to TAFE.
In addition, students must meet the following criteria :- 
 

1.Have demonstrated a commitment to the Hospitality & Tourism  Industry

2. Demonstrated an involvement in the industry and or their associations.

3. Is highly motivated and displays high leadership skills

4. Has a consistent academic record

In the 2010 Academic year and in its 13th year, the awards program was modified to include Environmental issues in keeping with changes in course curriculum occurring at that time. 

From 2014, the award has been renamed the Hospitality Leadership and Development Award and open to students across all Hospitality Courses conducted by the Sutherland College of TAFE on the Loftus Campus. 

Throughout these 20 years, Rotary has been greatly impressed by the high calibre, determination and the achievements of the graduating students from  this school. 
This in turn has been due in no small way to the teaching staff, past and present,  who have instilled in the students,  those qualities needed for the attainment excellence in the industry 
 
The awards and awardees for 2017 / 2018 are :-
 
 
 
Engadine Rotary Continues to Support John Paul Village  Dementia program 

Engadine Rotary Continues to Support John Paul Village  Dementia program 

Posted by Glen Beauchamp on Apr 05, 2017

At our recent "How to Volunteer" presentation evening, Engadine Rotary presented John Paul Village with a cheque for $2750 to purchase additional Ipads to continue their ongoing dementia program
 
Studies being conducted overseas, have shown that  iPads and their applications have helped improve motor skills, provide memory stimulation and cognitive function and create a positive impact on the social interaction of those with dementia. This is proving to be the case at John Paul Village.
 
Engadine Rotary, as part of its social programs, believes that we should be supporting all areas of our local society including Nursing homes . We therefore wish the Diversional staff at John Paul Village continued success with the expanded use of these ipads.
One member has commented that "the presentation from JPV on ipods/pads was very touching on how powerful listening to music in aged care centres and the positive results it achieves."

About Our Club's Territory  

Being surrounded by national parks, Engadine has within its territory , some of the most spectacular coast line and bush land in this state . As you enter the district from either the north, south or west , you soon become aware of  the surrounding National Parks and the rugged nature of the countryside . The Royal National Park is  Australia's First dedicated national park and the world's second. In the Heathcote National park, the ridges and drier slopes are covered in forest dominated by angophoras and eucalypts such as bloodwood, greygum, Sydney peppermint, and scribbly gum. Following the upper reaches of the Woronora River leads to the Woronora Dam and reservoir which form part of Sydney's water supply  

Photos of some of the local Scenes appear in the above Carousel. They are Lady Carrington Drive National Park , Woronora Dam and Reservoir , Stanwell  Park from Bald Hill , on the Woronora River are   Kingfisher Pool, Engadine Lagoon and The Needles , and finally Historic Helensburgh with original Railway tunnel (1884) and Station (1889) reference Helensburgh Historical Society
