WALK FOR RECONCILIATION
 
The community was invited to journey through Kaarta Koomba (Kings Park) on
June 3 for the Walk for Reconciliation, the final event of National Reconciliation Week. Live acoustic music carried walkers through to meeting places dotted along the walk, featuring truth telling sessions, opportunities for reflection, and cultural experiences.
 
National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. The dates for NRW are the same each year; 27 May to 3 June.
 
A number of Rotary members assisted with the event and enjoyed the opportunity to both contribute to the success of the event while learning more about our shared histories, cultures and achievements.

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.

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.
