Merry Christmas to All and a very Happy New Year!

The Rotary Club of Modbury in partnership with The Salvation Army and “Ray White North East Real Estate” have delivered Christmas Hampers to 25 household in the northeastern suburbs of Adelaide. The business of “Ray White” have been busy collecting presents for the last 4 weeks, which we distributed to families in need. Our members worked hard to get it all done in time for the Festive Season.

Student of the Year 2016Sibrina Beukes (Golden Grove), Casey Stoneman (King’s Baptist) and William Fay( Pedare) receiving at the Rotary Club of Golden Grove Student of the Year awards.

As has been the case for many years the club has found it very difficult to pick the most outstanding student of the year as all the applicants were outstanding. However the selection panel finally decided on William (Billy) Fay as the overall student of the Year. Congratulations to Billy and the other two finalists and the club wishes well in the future and expects that it will continue to hear good things about them all.

Isabella and Robert are pictured above with our NYSF Co-ordinator, Rotarian Mathew.

In the very competitive field of National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) selection, we congratulate Isabella on her success. She will be attending the NYSF in Canberra next January.

Isabella and her father, Robert, joined us at last night’s meeting when she talked a little about her expectations and dreams of her future in the field of science.

All Club members are happy to be sponsoring Isabella and we wish her well. We’re looking forward to welcoming her back to a Club meeting in the New Year to hear about her experiences.

They have both kindly offered to assist our Club at a fundraising bbq next month.
