What has our Club been doing?
Each year, the Rotary Club of North Ryde runs a tour, in May, of local technology based companies for students from Country NSW.  We have been running the programme for 13 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.
 
Rotarians take the students on a series of visits to technology based companies such as Microsoft, IBM, Oracle, Cisco, Facebook and Google and other major companies which use technology in their businesses such as Coles, Optus and Canon.  They also see how technology is used within the Universities of UTS and Macquarie and visit the Sydney Observatory.
 
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 we had 4 students from schools at  Ashford and Forbes who participated in the program from Sunday 26 May until Friday 31 May. Each student prepared a presentation about their experiences during the tour at Canon on Thursday afternoon. The students gave their presentations at a special farewell dinner provided by the Club at Riding for the Disabled, Marsfield that evening.

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.

OBJECT OF ROTARY

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.

 

THE FOUR-WAY TEST

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.
