South Australia Police Officer of the Year 2018
 
The South Australia Police Officer of the Year Award has been a major vocational project of the Rotary Club of Unley each year since 1978.
 
Nominations are received from organisations, local government, service clubs, community groups and individuals from across the State of South Australia. All nominations are considered by the Club and, following consultation with the Commissioner of Police, a deserving recipient is selected.
 
This year, unlike previous years, it is proposed that nominations for the SA Police Officer of the Year will change to July 2018. It is also planned for the first time that this award will be presented at a public ceremony at the Royal Adelaide Show on the 7th September 2018 at 12.00 noon. Our hope is that the change in locality will bring Rotary more media exposure.

Summits Education
 
INTRODUCTION
 
Summits is a Boston and Haiti based non-governmental organization operating a network of 40 primary schools serving approximately 10,000 students and 350 educators in Haiti’s Central Plateau. Most families in this rural, mountainous region are subsistence farmers and live on less than $2 dollars per day. We work in partnership with local communities and governmental entities to ensure that schools meet the needs of the whole child, promoting a school environment where each student is healthy, safe, engaged, challenged, and supported.
 
Over the past decade, important progress has been made to ensure that children have access to education and school attendance rates have increased significantly with a leap in new infrastructures nationwide. However, despite the efforts of the Haitian government and partners, the impact on school quality is still limited in terms of student achievement, teaching practices, and educational facilities. Dire needs are not met such as water, sanitation and canteen programs, and the Haitian education system suffers from persistent dysfunctions such as weak governance, poor teacher capacity, insufficient and inappropriate infrastructure, lack of instructional materials, outdated curriculum and instructional practices, and low primary school completion.
 
Conscious of these issues, Summits has engaged all its resources to support the efforts undertaken to improve the Haitian education system and improve students learning outcomes in the communities we serve. Summits is not just another NGO doing business as usual. Where others see obstacles, we see opportunities. At Summits, we partner with the Ministry of Education to reinforce the quality of the public education offered in the Central Plateau and we unite with a coalition of partners to ensure efforts are impactful and sustainable.

Teach English Online
 
Volunteers are needed to teach English to disadvantaged adult students in Burma online and from your home.
 
No qualifications required.
 
Training will be provided by Rotarian Ian Stanford from the RC of Norwood. Ian is an online IELTS (International English Language Testing System) teacher. IELTS is the English testing system used by the Australian Government and universities to assess English language competence.
 
Mostly what is required is support and encouragement for adult students to listen and read materials and to give feedback as to their progress in speaking and writing. The teaching methodology Ian adopts is in keeping with Stephen Krashen, a world expert and Steve Kaufmann, a world renowned polyglot who speaks 17 languages.
 
The basics are that learning should be fun, easy and effective. So you will be involved in a fun type teaching environment where the students do their own learning rather than the teacher teaching. You will also have fun in learning why you speak and write as you do as most native English speakers know what is correct but don’t know why.
 
This program with be in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Yangon, Myanmar and with President Elect Haymar who is an IELTS teacher and examiner in Yangon who shares Ian’s passion for fun, easy and effective teaching.
 
Come and share in the fun and excitement of making a difference in Burma. Learning English is the quickest way to take people out of poverty.
 
Ian will provide optional information / training sessions in a classroom situation on Saturday mornings for those who like personal face-to face contact and live in Adelaide however online communication will be the norm so where you live is not important.
 
Ian can be contacted at ian@learn-english.com.au  or 0431 364 136 and you can view his IELTS training website at www.learn-english.com.au

Campbelltown Council's 2018 Citzen of the Year
 
(Rotarian) MR PETER ALLEN
 
 
Peter has demonstrated his willingness to serve the community since joining Rotary in June, 1971.
 
He was President in 1984 and has served on the many Committees in Rotary over the years. During the past 11 years, he has been very active in working with the regional Domestic Violence Service which covers Campbelltown and almost a quarter of metropolitan Adelaide. His continuing efforts to assist survivors of domestic and family violence in rebuilding their lives, together with his involvement in Rotary and the Rotary Shed is the basis for this nomination.
 
Peter’s community work with the Eastern Adelaide Domestic Violence Service is outstanding and continues to maintain the existing partnership with the Rotary Club of Campbelltown. Peter’s connection with both services highlights the importance of community connection, building community capacity and best practice when growing partnership opportunities between Service Clubs and Non-Government Organisations. His positive influence has been a conduit in the building of relationships between the two organisations which has ultimately resulted in better outcomes and benefits for the most disadvantaged within our Community.

Project to Honour Our Fallen
 
As a fellow Rotarian I am writing to all District Governors to introduce a new project called "HONOUR OUR FALLEN" which is a not-for- profit organisation (registration pending) formed to honour and preserve the memory of those deceased military personnel, buried in Australia, who served our Nation in all conflicts and theatres since the Boer War.
 
In partnership with local Schools, who will research and locate ex-Service personnel graves in local cemeteries, in any area and thereafter, on each Anzac Day beginning in 2018, place an Australian flag on each gravesite or memorial plaque.
 
I understand you all have a long list of projects for this year, however, please consider Honour Our Fallen to be added.
 
I have attached a  Media Release , and some  images  of what we are aiming to be the end result every ANZAC DAY.

Calperum and Taylorville Stations
 
Calperum Station and Taylorville Station are pastoral leases near Renmark in South Australia, comprising of 242,800 and 92,600 hectares of predominantly open mallee bushland and Murray River floodplains. They form part of Riverland Biosphere Reserve, which is located in the Riverland area of South Australia. The Riverland Biosphere Reserve was previously known as the 'Bookmark' Biosphere Reserve, a name derived from the Aboriginal word Pukumako meaning flint stone axe or sandstone grit hole.
 
Calperum and Taylorville are important locally, nationally and internationally because of their intact mallee vegetation, the presence of several threatened bird species, and their wetlands and related species. The properties form critical habitat for the endangered black-eared miner (Manorina melanotis). They are also important for the conservation of the nationally vulnerable malleefowl (Leipoa ocellata), the regionally vulnerable bush stone-curlew (Burhinus grallarius) and the nationally vulnerable southern bell frog (Litoria ramiformis).
 
Calperum Station with its significant Mallee and Murray River wetlands, was purchased by the Chicago Zoological Society in 1993 with assistance from the Australian Government. Taylorville Station was purchased by the Australian Landscape Trust in 2000, with assistance from the Australian Government, as an addition to the Riverland Biosphere Reserve. Both properties are deeded to the Director of National Parks.
 
Location of the Riverland Biosphere ReserveThe Mallee scrubland of Australia is one of the most endangered vegetation types in the world, with approximately 80 per cent cleared for agriculture in the past 150 years. The mallee, like many parts of Australia, has not responded well to imposed European style land use. In the past the fragile soils and vegetation have been overexposed to grazing and inappropriate land use.
Calperum and Taylorville Stations are managed by the Australian Landscape Trust under contract to the Director of National Parks.
Calperum Photographic Competition
 
As most Rotarians in D9520 and D9500 already know, Calperum Station has become Rotary’s greatest environmental project in Australia.  
 
To celebrate our achievements to date, and to appreciate that our best work at Calperum is still into the future, the CALPERUM & THE ENVIRONMENT Committee (CATE) are conducting a Photographic Competition to become part of our Calperum Display at the forthcoming Joint District Conference.
 
Subjects can be anything you choose, but must have been taken at Calperum Station. For example, they may be wildlife, vegetation, water or even Rotarians having fun.
 
Entries can be electronic (preferable) or printed (B&W or Colour, prefer 10 x 8 size, and they will be laminated for the display) and retained by CATE for our files. By entering you will be granting CATE permission to use your photo.  Entries can either be
  • emailed to will4444sa@gmail.com, or

  • Posted to Rotary Photo Competition, C/- CATE, Lvl 3, 97 Pirie Street Adelaide 5000

 
Entries are now open, and will close on Monday 12 March 2018.
 
Riseley Forest Update
 
 ***   UPDATE  &  THANK YOU   ***
 
The CALPERUM & THE ENVIRONMENT Committee (D9500 & D9520) is pleased to advise that we have achieved our original target of $12,500 towards creating the
 
RISELEY FOREST @ CALPERUM
 
The target was set towards the planting of a minimum of 2,500 trees, shrubs and ground-covers at Calperum as part of our major revegetation program commenced over a decade ago. At the CATE meeting in February it was decided that some experimental plantings with an alternative watering system should be funded, and that this should also become part of the RISELEY FOREST.
 
Thirty out of 90 Club in D9520 and D9500 have to date contributed, but we still need further support for the additional scope of work we have now committed towards, meaning that the total planting will exceed 3,000.  We hope Ian Riseley won’t object to us exceeding his expectation.
 
A full list of Clubs who have supported the RISELEY FOREST will appear in the Autumn edition of  CALPERUM NEWS.
 
 
RISELEY FOREST @ EVERYWHERE
 
In addition to the CALPERUM FOREST to acknowledge Ian Riseley’s vision of tree planting around the Rotary world, quite a number of Rotary Clubs are planting a local FOREST, many in conjunction with a local school.
 
We acknowledge the efforts of innovative initiatives in this regard.  One Club plants a tree for each guest speaker this year, another is seeking to beautify the O-Bahn tunnel in the parklands (good luck), and another held a Club working bee at the President’s farm to plant the trees he needed as windbreaks.
 
As a photographic tribute to be shared with RI President Ian when he is in Australia in coming weeks, please URGENTLY send photos and more details of your tree planting projects to Don Will at will4444sa@gmail.com.
 
Health of the River Forum
 
After a short break whilst the program was being revamped, it is pleasing to advise that in November 2018 this valuable youth project will be hosted again at Calperum in the Riverland.
 
The program is designed for Year 10 students with a special interest in the environment, and in the past has energised students to pursue this interest into a career. Choice.
 
As it is envisaged that a maximum of 30 students only will be able to participate this year, early registration from Clubs wishing to sponsor a student is encouraged. The anticipated cost per student for the week long forum is only $500.
 
Best email address to do so is to Don Will at will4444sa@gmail.com
 
ShelterBox Annapurna Trek 2018
 
My name is Peter Pearce, Rotarian, ShelterBox Ambassador & Response Team Member.
 
After 20 deployments as a ShelterBox Response Team member in various locations around the world, I am more than excited to inform you that I will be joining the ShelterBox Nepal Trek with the team departing in September 2018.
 
In 2015 I was deployed to Nepal after the devastating earthquake, therefore,I know firsthand of the hardships this type of disaster causes its people. ShelterBox responded with enough aid to provide shelter for more than 67,000 people.
 
Your fundraising efforts to provide ShelterBoxes & ShelterKits will transform lives & rebuild communities that have been affected by disaster & humanitarian crisis.

I would love to have your company on this stunning adventure

Maldives 2018
 
 
Based upon the success of the last D9520 trip to the Maldives, and the special relationship between our District and introducing Rotary to the Maldives, another Rotary trip is planned in around August 2018 (likely in second half but exact dates TBC) to coincide with the induction of Ahmed Ranesh (the first Maldivian Rotarian in 2011) as the President of the Male Club.
 
The itinerary of around eleven day will include some time in Male, the bustling capital, a few days relaxing aboard a safari boat exploring the stunning islands and Rotary's work, and then a few days of relaxing on a tropical island.   Hard work we know, but someone has to do it !!!
 
The ideal tour group will be around 20 participants, and early registration is encouraged by those interested. Travel arrangement to and from Maldives is flexible, and as the Maldives are about half way from Australia to Europe, this visit could be incorporated into a trip elsewhere.  A budget for the component of the tour within the Maldives (eleven days) would be around $1800/$2,000 per person including accommodation, and most meals.
 
 
 
If interested please contact Don Will on dwill@wilkingroup.com.au, or ring 0414 645 402 on or before 16th so that the level of interest can be established.
 
Rotary Adventure in Citizenship

“Creatures of Habit”
 
Our former District Membership Chair Mark Huddleston has just written his first book.
 
“Creatures of Habit” is being launched at the District Conference in March. RRP is $24.90. It can then be either picked up from the conference or Mark personally, or pay $8.95 to be posted to you. Please visit www.sfzpublishing.net to place your order.
 
Mark says:-
 
"In Creatures of Habit I explain how yesterday's actions brought about today's membership predicament, and why today's response is so important for Rotary's future. I'll also discuss how to overcome the recruitment barriers we put in place, and will point out the biggest and most counterproductive mistake clubs make when facing membership decline. 

Make no mistake: new members are out there just waiting to join the right version of Rotary.

Creatures of Habit shares every membership tip I've picked up along the way, and explains how we can deliver the right message to the right audience and plot a path to recovery".
 
RYPEN Applications Now Open
 
Last year, the District RYLA/RYPEN Committee launched a website specifically for the RYPEN program at http://www.rypen9520.org.au. This website had provided all of the information clubs have been asking for, and includes a Frequently Asked Questions section, along with the “For clubs” section. It has had over 5,000 views over the past year, and contributed to our most successful RYPEN program.
 
As we receive questions from clubs we will be updating it so that all clubs can have the most up to date information. It is adaptable to PC, Mac and all mobile devices. So check it out, and let us know what you think.
 
Another component which we introduced, was that we could accept online applications. While we continue to recognise that many clubs circulate hard copy forms (which are also available on the website), this provides the opportunity for your club to promote the program to a young person (between the ages of 14-17) and for them to apply ON THE SPOT.
 
One challenge that many clubs face is finding their own applicant. RYPEN is an opportunity to develop young people in our communities in many areas. It also provides a source of new young people in to our club… a gateway to Rotary experiences.

Rotary Leadership Institute
 
Like to meet Rotarians from other clubs and learn more about Rotary? Then Rotary Leadership Institute is for you.
 
We still have places available in all courses – get started now and register (see below for details) for this exciting Rotary experience.
 
The Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) is a series of fast paced, interactive, (one weekend) courses offered to refine a Rotarian’s leadership skills and increase their base knowledge of Rotary.
 
Courses are fun, topical, interactive and geared to busy business people and professionals who would like to be more dynamic as leaders and members of their vocation and club. The training provides a better understanding of Rotary and its programmes, thus developing more effective Rotarians.
 
The Rotary Leadership Institute was formed in 1992 and it has been adopted by 192 Rotary Districts in 94 countries around the world. Participants are expected to contribute their experience and ideas in facilitated discussion groups (not more than 15 participants) and the aim is to acquire leadership skills and grow Rotary knowledge. A deeper understanding of the unique nature of each Rotary club is fostered and participants are encouraged to learn from these differences. The style of the courses is conversational and learning comes by sharing knowledge, ideas and opinions.
 
The Institute offers courses in two full day sessions (9:00am to 5:00pm) and participants must complete day 1 before proceeding to day 2. Rotary Clubs are asked to select at least two candidates for RLI annually and encouraged to send as many members as show interest in attending. Graduates return to their club with enthusiasm, new contacts, fresh ideas, an increased understanding of their potential as Rotarians, adding valuable skills that will impact on the club.
