How Regionalisation Will Strengthen Zone 8 (Peter Frueh & Ingrid Waugh)
 
Find out what Rotary International is supporting to enhance club support and reduce volunteer effort and cost. The CoChairs of the Regionalisation project for Zone 8, Peter Frueh and Ingrid Waugh, will explain how Rotary and Rotaract can be enhanced in Australia, New Zealand and the 14 Pacific Islands that make up Zone 8. The focus is on streamlining communications, avoiding duplication within the 19 Districts and having properly trained and skilled volunteers and staff directly supporting clubs.

Science and Engineering
Volunteer Request
 
Creating a hovercraft, constructing an earthquake proof tower, or building a bionic hand are among the challenges hundreds of Year 10 and Year 5/6 students will be trying their hands at in the upcoming Science and Engineering Challenge & Discovery Days.
 
The Challenge and Discovery Days are run by The University of Newcastle and Rotary Clubs around Australia, and has proved highly successful in inspiring students who are making subject selections to consider a future career in Science and Engineering.
 
You do not need a STEM background, just enthusiasm! In a team of 2/3 people you will facilitate one hands-on STEM activity for up to 32 year 5/6 students as per the instruction sheet provided when you volunteer. You will brief the students of the aims and rules by reading from the activity checklist provided.

Jeff Leach and Matthew Pham are participating in this year's Vinnies CEO Sleepout on Thursday evening, 23rd June at Optus Stadium. This will be Matthew's 6th time doing the event whilst it'll be the 11th occasion for Jeff.
 
They are looking to raise money and awareness for the homeless people in Australia. Currently there are over 116,000 Australians who are homeless, of which over 9,000 are in Western Australia. They're sleeping out in the cold in hopes that others don't have to and to break the cycle of homelessness.
