President Cliff with Commander Allan Wood, celebrating the delivery of two Personal Water Craft (PWC). The purchase of the PWC’s was the Rotary Club of Warrnambool Easts R100 project. In partnership with the Rotary Club of Warrnambool, who took the lead role in funding raising, funds were raided to purchase the PWC’s.
 
On the PWCs there is a need to install lights and signage.  Warrnambool Coast Guard [WCG] is very appreciative of our work and our donation. The shed is where we will have a plaque on it and all donors will be acknowledged. There will be an official handover in front of the media and the WCG will organise that day.

 

As part of the celebration of 100 years of Rotary Service in Australia, Rotary Clubs were asked to identify projects of lasting benefit to the community and these projects would be completed as part of the celebration.
 
The Rotary Club of Warrnambool East is supporting an initiative at Lake Pertobe in Warrnambool to be used in the development of an Indigenous meeting place of cultural significance, containing paved areas with sculptures and totems, ground works containing indigenous plants and a curved stone seating area surrounding a metal bowl to be used for ceremonial purposes. This area will be open to all and will be constructed on a small island within the northern end of the Lake Pertobe area. This project is being funded in conjunction with Warrnambool Daybreak Rotary, the Rotary Club of Warrnambool Central, the Warrnambool City Council and the Victorian Government our contribution being $5,000.

NATIONAL YOUTH SCIENCE FORUM (NYSF), formerly NATIONAL SCIENCE SUMMER SCHOOL (NSSS)

The NSSS began in 1983. Its aim was to encourage high school science students to come to Canberra to study. Over a 2 week residential program in January, the selected students were given access to University and other laboratories, and to high standing academics. The first program was delivered in 1984 to 200 young people from across Australia, including one sponsored by RCWE. Developed under the auspices of local Rotarians and academics, the program was initially funded by the Canberra Development Commission. It was later supported for several years by Siemens and by Rio Tinto.
Rotarians have been involved in the selection of students to attend from the very beginning.
 
Over the years, the NYSF has evolved and grown. It is now a not-for-profit organisation with an experienced and independent volunteer board. The highly qualified and professional corporate team operates out of Canberra, delivering the suite of programs that run throughout the year.
 
Since 1984, more than 12,000 young Australians have participated in the NYSF Year 12 Program. Our Club, RCWE, has a long and successful record with this program, having successfully sponsored:-
 
1984 :: Caroline Gunn            2001 :: Kara Woolley    
1987 :: Stephen Pinson           2004 :: Cheryl Orchard    
1990 :: Rebecca O’Brien        2005 :: Tara de Kok    
1992 :: Andrew McKenzie     2009 :: Samuel Ballinger
1993 :: Ben Malseed              2016 :: Katelyn Evans
1995 :: Joanne Ryan              2019 :: Rebecca Zerbe
1998 :: Tim Malseed              2020 :: Tori Parsons
1999 :: Andrew Ballinger      2020 :: ? Jace Nepean ?

In addition, on several occasions when RCWE did not have a candidate, financial support was provided to the student nominated by the other Warrnambool Clubs and by Port Fairy.
 
Further, for a couple of years, the late PP John Wilson & his wife Fay acted as camp “mum & dad” during the Canberra activities. Ray Welsford was Chair of the District NYSF Committee for several years, and therefore responsible for student selection.
