RYLEAP 2018 applications are closing soon!!

RYLEAP is an extension program following on from where RYLA ended.
 This is an intensive program for people serious about
 learning cutting edge leadership skills.
 With fewer participants,
 a much deeper level of information can be taught
. Using technologies such as NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming) 
participants will walk away with a heightened sense of self empowerment
 and a clear pathway to achieve their goals including
 a 3 month mapped out action plan.
 They will be provided with the tools to help express themselves 
with confidence and passion and inspire others.
 Leading groups and mentoring individuals will also be covered.

Participants completing RYLEAP will also achieve
 a Certificate 1 in Leadership
. RYLEAP will take your leadership to the next level
 and will be a powerful tool in building your career.

Applications close the 31 of May!!

Autism Awareness Day 2018

Rotary Club of Scarborough
at the club meeting

Jim Joseph  introduced the guest speakers
 for the day from the Telethon Institute
 Dr Keely Bebbington and Dr Kiah Evans.
   Kiele and Kyar then gave an overview 
of how the Autism portal works 
and the information that can be obtained
 from its data source.

   The information included;

   Monitoring service delivery
   Categorise who uses the services
   The age and history of people in the registry
   Monitoring assessment standards
   Extacting data to assist families
 and link with other registries in the world

This is a project that the Rotary Club of Scarborough
 has directly funded and it was great 
to see the clubs funds being put to such a good use
   that can assist families and provide 
ongoing valuable information 
for research into the future.

Keely and Kiah then took many questions
 from the audience.
Jim Joseph then thanked Keely & Kiah 
for an inspiring & educational talk
 on their research into Autism 
and how the register will assist.

Rotary Club of Karrinyup

THE Karrinyup Community Men’s Shed is set to open 
after a two-year search for a home.
The Rotary Club of Karrinyup has been trying 
to establish a shed since late 2015
 and steering committee member Peter Polain 
said they were about to give up when the City of Stirling 
identified a suitable property at the former
 Balcatta Kindergarten site on Jedda Road.
“While this property is not as large as we hoped,
 it is in a condition that will enable us to commence 
operating very quickly,” he said.

Council approved a 12-month lease to the club
as a trial and Mr Polain hoped to show the shed was needed,
 especially as the closest group,
 Stirling Community Men’s Shed, 
had a wait list for new members.

Under a benefactors trust and in conjunction with the North Beach RSL Sub-branch,
 RC Karrinyup will sponsor two young Australians
 to participate in an organised 
commemorative tour of the Kokoda trek in June.
 The applicants were required to demonstrate a genuine interest
 in Australia’s military history.
 At our meeting this week, David Singer and Drew Sweet
 introduced themselves and told us why
 they will embrace this gruelling undertaking 
and why it holds a special significance for each of them.

Heather and Peter

Many people, and particularly Rotary Clubs 
throughout Western Australia, are familiar with
 RC Karrinyup's major 40th anniversay project, the Earbus,
 which was designed to work in the Kimberley region of our state.
The purpose built vehicle was completed
 and handed over to the Earbus Foundation in April of 2017
 and has been hard at work in the Goldfields
 and other areas ever since.
Under the WA Country Health Service,
 the State Government has committed to providing 
$2.7 million over three years to expand the Earbus program.
A key election commitment, the Earbus program,
 to be delivered by the Ear Foundation WA (EFWA),
 offers mobile ear health clinics to Aboriginal children 
in schools, day-cares, kindergartens and playgroups 
and works with local primary healthcare services 
to connect the community with general practitioners
, audiologists and ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialists 
without duplication.
The Earbus program is now ready 
for expansion in the Kimberley, and will be acknowledged
 with an official launch to be held on Friday 18 May 2018.
 Ms Josie Farrer MLA, Member for Kimberley,
 will be representing the Deputy Premier for the launch.

For RC Karrinyup the Earbus has finally 'come home' 
to work in the land for which it was intended.
