Peace Pole @ East Para Primary School


This morning we joined the students and staff of East Para Primary School to unveil a Peace Pole in their garden. The Pole was donated by the members of the Rotary Club of Modbury Golden Grove as part of a project to mark the Centenary of Rotary in South Australia.

The unveiling today, on this, the International Day of Peace was a statement by the school community on its commitment in joining with Rotary and other Peace Pole Schools, to be a messenger of Peace to all of Australia.

President Alan read a message from the Secretary-General of the United Nations calling on us all that Peace is not only a noble vision for humanity, but a call to action.

For the students of East Para Primary school, preparing the garden and planting their Peace Pole is their first action to see Peace Prevail on Earth.

This is our club’s second donated Peace Pole, we hope to establish more in our community, please contact us if you are interested.

“May Peace Prevail on Earth”

Meeting #1757

Last tonight’s club meeting we had the privilege of have two special guests: 

Kathryn Button, from Global Connect Christian Schools & Owen Brown, a NYSF applicant.


Kathryn Button, Director at Global Connect Christian Schools who spoke to us about her work and her recent trip to Uganda, and the work with a particular school there.

Christian Schools Global Connect
is a relationship-based network, welcoming partner organisations and individuals to further Christian Education, Leadership School Partnership and Service Learning, globally.


During Kathryn trip to Uganda she visited SIMEKA Junior Primary School. A self funded primary/ boarding school who eagerly and passionately educates children in their area. Unfortunately, they are very poor with limited resources and with a building falling apart. Kathryn was very touched by this place and made it her personal mission to spread the word about SIMEKA and is trying to find support for this independent school.

We were proud to meet Owen, son of Rotarian Mathew Brown, who our club has selected to support to attend the next National Youth Science Forum. Check out future posts to hear about Owen’s trip.
