Rotary Club of Swan Distri



We are very proud of Head of Science Bill Offer,
 who has been honoured by the Swan Districts Rotary Club with a Paul Harris Fellow Award.
 Rotary members surprised Mr Offer at this morning's assembly
 - here's what they had to say about the award:
"The award is in recognition of Mr Offer's efforts in selecting and mentoring students 
towards nomination to attend the National Youth Science Forum (NYSF)
 in Canberra each year.
 In a partnership with Swan Districts Rotary spanning over a decade Helena College 
has averaged a selection of two outstanding young students each year
 to attend the NYSF in Canberra. 
This is an outstanding achievement and reflects highly of Mr Offer,
 the science department and the high academic standards
 in place at Helena College."
Mr Offer says he's honoured by the award, 
and the standing ovation he received from his fellow staff members at the assembly.

Rotary Club of Karrinyup



Rotary Foundation Chair Brad Martin and President Tony Muse 
honored Lauren Darge, our GRSP (Georgia Rotary Student Program)
Georgia Gwinnett College student from Perth, Australia,
 as a Paul Harris Fellow for the fine qualities she has displayed 
during her academic year with us. 
From the delightful recap of her experiences and the insights she gained, 
which she also presented to Duluth Rotarians this morning, 
Lauren, no doubt, will be a wonderful goodwill ambassador
 wherever life takes her.

Sister Amelia Whitely


Many Northam residents will be sad to learn 
of the passing of Sister Aemelia Whiteley, last week.
 Her funeral will be held at Karrakatta on Friday at 1215pm. 
following a Church service at Shelley, at 1030.
Sr Aemelia a member of the congregation of St Joseph of the Apparition 
which taught for over a century at Northam, 
was one of the last Nuns to reside in Northam.
 Sr Aemelia also claims membership of the Rotary Club of Northam,
 perhaps the first Nun to ever be a Rotarian.
(from her photo can be seen no less than five Rotary badges,
 the Rotary centenary 1905-2005 square badge; 
with Angels and a boomerang badge alongside)
Sr Aemelia was a well known identity, performing community work
 especially Friday nights visiting Hotels etc.
, assisting the disabled and disadvantaged.
 Later she would be enlisting aid of youth to search bins 
and take the ring pulls from drink cans.
The community of St Joseph in particular has
 a great awareness of this lady, 
but the whole community in the early 2000s
 would have had contact with her.
For the past 4 years Sr Aemelia has been a resident of aged care facility,
 Margaret Hubery House, Shelley.

Kalgoorlie born and raised she is survived by a brother.
