LYSTERFIELD PRIMARY SCHOOL (LPS) – ‘The FOUR PROJECTS’
Following a meeting of interested Club members last night, I am pleased to report progress on the following FOUR PROJECTS we are jointly undertaking with LPS.
1. Kitchen Garden Restoration Project. A small team of volunteers headed by Darren St Ledger and Marg Vesey will make a time to meet with Principal Kendra Parker to ‘walk the ground,’ and to discuss possibilities with a view to preparing an Action Plan for future developments.
2. In Class Support – ‘Reading Rotarians Volunteers’ A number of members are interested in this project and new club member, Jenny Moran has agreed to act as the liaison person with the designated LPS staff member and arrange rosters. Before commencing, however we shall need to explore the school protocols for volunteers and whether we need to undertake any training or orientation programs for in-class volunteers.
3. Earlyact Club I am meeting with staff member Danielle Sandeman on Thursday morning to begin the process of establishing an Earlyact club in years 5 and 6 and all being well should be able to launch the club in early Term 2.
4. Federal Election Day BBQ Our club is certainly interested in staging this event, but have some questions about logistics, which will be initially dealt with when the Kitchen Garden team meet with the Principal.

Farmer’s Drought Relief Appeal
This project is a partnership between Rotary International, Channel Nine
and the National Farmer’s Federation and after only six days has already
raised some $2.1 million. All donations to this fund are exempt from the
normal RAWCS service fee and it should be note that our District has already
donated $2500. DG Russell is working with his fellow DG’s to co-ordinate a
‘District to District and Club to Club’ effort so that all clubs will have
the chance to ‘buddy-up’ with a Rotary club in the worst affected areas to
ensure that our relief efforts and assistance can be directly targeted to
those in most need. Stay tuned for some big developments!

Changes in Youth Protection Policies
This week, Ken Mirams spoke to us about the changes required of Rotarian and Rotary Clubs in relation to activities involving youth. The recent Royal Commission of child abuse has certainly raised the community consciousness in this area and it is logical that tighter conditions would be imposed on those dealing with young and vulnerable people.
We have kicked off our support for this new compliance regime by completing two risk assessments for upcoming activities – Primary Schools Speech Competition and Interact participation in a Bunnings BBQ.
We are a vibrant community based volunteer service club and welcome visitors at our weekly club meetings. If you'd like to come and join us for dinner one evening please feel most welcome! Please contact
Daryl Moran (President) on 0404 069 751 or Kevin Harrison (Membership Chair) on 0419 919 011 to make arrangements.
Our Meetings are Held every Tuesday
6:30pm for 7:00pm Start
