, so anyone in Australia can buy and be in the running for a share of $25,000.

Enjoy a fabulous Sun downer at the MAAC:

 The Rotary Club of Karrinyup enjoys some fabulous sunsets 

at the Marmion Angling and Aquatic Club (MAAC)

. As a long standing supporter of Polio Plus,

 we have dedicated a Sun downer event to our fundraising

 for End Polio Now

Numbers are limited so book early to ensure you don’t miss out.

 Be sure to share this wonderful opportunity with family and friends.


A wonderful night was enjoyed by both the Rotarian's and Apex members.

 The night started with a delicious smorgasbord of food prepared by Tab from Apex.

 The MC for the night, Collin Fowler, introduced both sides and entertained us

 with witty conversations throughout the night

. Soon enough the debates began,

 with some interesting and, at times funny quips from both sides.

 The 3 adjudicators quietly went about their job, scoring each debater

. Michael presented the final decision to a hushed room of supporters.

 Unfortunately, Apex had won by 11 points.

The Rotarians would like to thank the Apex club for their hospitality

 and once again, congratulate them on their win.


Rotary social evening at Lynne and Brian Warrens’

 Members brought a plate. A fabulous evening shared.

 THANK YOU both.

Some of our passionate members got the opportunity to assess the 

2022 National Youth Science Forum applicants on their teamwork skills today

! The lead up to this event involved creating the activity, 

while finding an activity that could assess a wide number of skills 

and then sourcing the materials needed to make the activity as enjoyable as possible.

We assessed 17 year 11 students from the south district,

 and we observed their team work as it's such a big part of STEM careers.

One of our members, Jess, is a 2021 NYSF alumni and she loved being

 on the other side of the table, assessing students who are passionate as her in science


Did you know that there’s only around 400 

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander doctors in Australia?

 That’s fewer than 0.5% of our doctors. 

The Australian Rotary Indigenous Health Scholarship

 aims to combat this by supporting Indigenous Australians

 as they study medicine, nursing and allied health.

We were joined this week by some of our lovely Rotarians 

and got to celebrate together our clubs $500 donation to support this program 


💛💙Another great night with all 3 Rotary Clubs getting together 💙💛

a unifying night that celebrates each club's unique qualities and members

 while enjoying fellowship with like minded people 💛💙
