What has our Club been doing?
Anzac day
Several Rotarians also commemorated ANZAC Day with Putney Scout Group at the Kakoda Trail memorial.
Youth night - another great success
It was great to hear from Jared (Youth Exchange Student 2020) who spent the year in Sweden during COVID and from Abby (Youth Exchange Student 2019), who spent the year in Germany but couldn't meet with us last yaer because of COVID.  Then we had a great presentation from Zoya (RYPEN Summer 2021 student).  Such wonderful young people give us great hope for the future.
Here is a photo of the presentation to RDA NSW Ryde Centre for $2,000 and a photo of all those who attended and there are more in the photo gallery.
Thank you to everyone who supported the inaugural North Ryde eFun Run for Youth Mental Health. The week was a great fundraising success and also a wonderful way to get out, enjoy the beautiful autumn weather and keep fit. The final amount raised is still to be announced, but when all sponsorship donations have been reconciled should be in the vicinity of $11,000, which is fantastic!
The Rotary Club of North Ryde Board will be finalising the donations to Australian Rotary Health and the Centre for Emotional Health from the eFun Run at the next Board meeting in May. 
I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the event's success:
  • Our sponsors: Spooner Specialist Physiotherapy, Gladesville; Bendigo Bank, North Ryde;  Macquarie University Village; Konica Minolta North Ryde; Ray White North Ryde, The Weekly Times and the Honorable John Alexander MP. 
  • Our Fundraising team: Bernie Mason, Peter Mason, Garry Maloney, Mandy Van, Rob Wilkinson, David Martin, Victoria Crawford and Juliet Chen who helped in so many ways to get the event "off the ground".
  • Our club members, friends and supporters who helped spread the word, participated and donated!

It’s our birthday and after a year of COVID-19 restrictions that cancelled many of our plans, we want to celebrate!

40 years ago, Australian Rotary Health (ARH) was established as a charitable fund by Rotarian PP Ian Scott and the Rotary Club of Mornington, Victoria, to research the mystery of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

Since those early days, our work has continued to expand and has made an impact not only across the country, but also internationally. With the support of Rotary Clubs and Districts in Australia, we are so proud to be a part of creating better health for all Australians. Research and advancements in knowledge funded by ARH provide both preventative and curative solutions for a broad range of health conditions.

Since 2000, our research focus has been on mental health. In 2012, this focus narrowed to the Mental Health of Young Australians (Aged 0-25), and in 2013, projects focussing on the Prevention of Mental Illness were included. Programs such as Cool Kids and Mental Health First Aid are just a couple of examples of our funding leading to positive outcomes. 

Lift the Lid on Mental Illness is our national campaign for mental health research and awareness, and every year on World Mental Health Day (October 10) we celebrate Hat Day to raise funds for vital research into mental health. 

In just 40 years, we’ve achieved so much. We’re inviting you to help us mark this milestone year and invest in the future by supporting our work today.
Say Happy Birthday to ARH

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.
