RAWCS PROJECT 108-2019-20, to provide scrub caps, scrubs, laundry and shoe bags for nurses and support staff in West Australian Hospitals (RACG) was signed off as complete on 14 November 2021.
 
This project supplied over 20,000 face masks to front line health workers. At a minimum retail value of $10 per mask, this equates to over a $200,000 donation. The other great benefit of this project was the mental health benefits to many participants. At a time of great stress during the initial stages of the COVID19 shut down strategies, this project gave individuals the opportunity to reach out and connect to the wider community is a safe manner. It has also encouraged the adoption by these people of other worthwhile charitable sewing projects, giving them an ongoing interest once the need for masks reduces.
 
This project shows the power of a matching grant...$4000 from an RACG grant, $4000 from sponsor club, Rotary Club of Western Endeavour plus donations from RC of Karrinyup (~$1000) and various smaller donations returned items to the value of $200,000.

2022 District 9455 Conference Art Competition for Link Schools
 
Is your Rotary link school participating in the 2022 District 9455 Conference Art Competition?
The art competition is taking place NOW in Term 4. Schools have until the end of their school year to complete the artwork.
 
What format will the competition take?
The artwork will be in the form of an A2 poster. Students are invited to investigate a West Australia Aboriginal artist that they like and present an informative poster about the artist. Please have a look at the specifications in the Rotary District 9455 Art competition – schools’ letter that came attached to an email to club presidents back in August or see below.
 
Who is the competition for and who decides who will enter?
The poster competition is for art students in Years 7 to 10. Schools will decide how many students will participate and, if possible, build this into their program for Term 4 or it can be done as a private activity at home.
 
How much will it cost for your link school to enter the competition?
Cost to the Rotary Club = $100. If you have more than one link school the fee will be discounted.
Please look at the details provided in the Rotary District 9455 Art Competition – Letter to Rotary Clubs which was emailed to club presidents back in August or see below.
 
There are some great prizes on offer including art materials and the opportunity to participate in a masterclass with an established artist. Please get behind this reconciliation initiative.
