Congratulations!
Swan Rotaract Charter
 
 
 
Swan Rotaract Club held their Official Charter Night on Saturday evening 4th December at the Bassendean Bowling Club. Over 80 attendees were present in celebrating the newest Rotaract Club in WA. DG Dee welcomed the 17 Charter members in the Rotary family and handed over the Charter certificate. The night was fun and casual with social lawn bowls, which many took up the offer. We want to thank everyone who attended the night and supported us over the journey. What started as a fragile idea over 3 years ago has eventuated the birth of a new Rotaract Club to inspire a group of young leaders who want to make a difference in the community.
We want to give a special shoutout to DG 9465 Patricia Schraven for attending the night and driving up all the way from Rockingham. It's fantastic to have the whole Rotary WA family coming together in support of us.

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.

Chartering the Swan Rotaract Club
 
MatthewPham.......Last week I was on Membership Voice alongside Tom to speak about Swan Rotaract and what we've learnt in starting up the Club. As you're aware it's been a lot of work over the past 3 years to get to where the Club is today. Hopefully it'll be a guide for other people and Clubs who are interested in starting up a Rotaract Club. It could also be extended to those asking how to attract new young members and keep them engaged within the Rotary network.
