Rotary News and Stories
Welcome to Rotary Karl Foskett.  Inducted on Tuesday 19th May along with his fellow Satellite Club members.
Thank you to PDG Ross Smith for joining Rotary Club of Stanthorpe's Monday zoom meeting.
He gave us a very informative presentation on Malaria and encouraged us to support the Griffith University in their endeavour to find a vaccine.
Malaria claims 438,000 deaths a day mainly children under 5.  Way more than our current COVID19.
Everybody in the group had a special story about the hat they were wearing, all wonderful stories, but Ross chose the winner as the Army Cap story from Jim Baxter.  "The cap has outlived the Super"  
 

Anna Henderson – YEP student sponsored by the Rotary Club of Stanthorpe is going to Italy on 17/01/2020. Anna has just attended her last briefing meeting before she leaves for her exchange. There are 150 Qld students leaving from the airport to their exchanges. All of the students are travelling to Singapore, then from Singapore they are separating to the countries that they are going to. Anna is going to Cremorna, an hour south of Milan. Her first host is a 61 year old single mother who has had many exchange students in the past. Past students shared their opinions at the recent briefing about being an exchange student. Anna has also met with the current inbound students. As an exchange student you need to give a presentation to the exchange club. Anna was required to share it in the host country language. Anna displayed the blazer that she is wearing as a part of the exchange with the badges she has received from the other YEP students. We wish Anna the very best for her exchange to Italy.

Nicole Clark, on behalf of the Satellite Rotary Club, presented to The Summit State School with a set of 24 Early Reader Series books which have been written for the Australian Curriculum in Science and Maths. These books are an initiative of Griffith University in collaboration with Rotary District 9640 and P&Cs Qld. The children in the Prep - 2 class eagerly selected a book at reading time and immediately engaged with their new reading material. The illustrations are clear and it is the intention that on return of the book after reading, the children will respond with a comprehension exercise about the book they have read. This will help the teacher gauge the value of these books. If the Club gets positive reports back, the intention is to provide more of these books to other schools in our area.
 We had a very enjoyable evening at St. Joey’s   on Monday night - great company, great food and         amazing pieces of work created by all the students  present.  Well done to the students, teachers, Jim ,    and Jim Baxter who was the judge.
 
Congratulations
to the place getters runner up Joshua Rowen for his welding table and
winner Brayden Spiller for his metal dog cage.
A lot of time and effort has gone into crafting their award winning masterpieces.  
and thanks
to their Teacher Scott Stone
