RC Scarborough Youth Night
 
Pres Rotary Scarborough, Alex Hickman               Rotex President Connor Ovens, with Rotary Exchange student
Recipients of the Stan Perron Award speaking       Alyssa Whalan speaking about her youth
on what it has meant to them                              exchange experiences in Denmark.
 
On Thursday, 26 May the Rotary Club of Scarborough held its Youth Night at the Western Australian Golf Club in Yokine. Having been cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to Covid restrictions, it was wonderful for the club to be able to showcase the various youth programs it sponsors, including Rotary Youth Leadership Awards and Youth Exchange as well as receiving reports from four past recipients of the Stan Perron Award at Carine and Churchlands Senior High Schools. 
 
The speakers, including the MC, Madi Smith, were outstanding and attendees were able to appreciate and be inspired by what they have gained from taking part in the programs and receiving the awards. Attendees also received updates on the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards from Tania Johanssen and Youth Exchange from Norman de Grussa as well as a presentation from members of Rotex about their organisation and experiences from participation in youth exchange.
 
The event provided an excellent example of the success of District 9455’s School Link Program, facilitating beneficial links between Rotary clubs and high schools to enable participation in Rotary youth programs.
 
District Secretary Yvonne Hart’s feedback reflected the night’s success:
It was an impressive evening because the event was run by young people and was a clear message showcasing how active Rotary Scarborough is with Youth in the area. I sat with two young people from Rotex as well as a teacher from Carine SHS so for me it was a great opportunity to meet new people who I normally would not have the opportunity to spend time with. The food was excellent so compliments to the WA Golf Club Chef.
Keep up the great youth work at Scarborough.
