Earlyact Club Established at Charles Campbell College

story thumbnail
At the end of 2020, the Rotary Club of Campbelltown sponsored and helped establish the Interact Club of Charles Campbell College. Interact Clubs involve members between the ages of 14 and 18 – our secondary students. At the same time, through Nikki the chair of our club’s Youth Committee, we supported Charles Campbell College to establish an EarlyAct Club for students in the primary years, up to the age of 13. The mission of EarlyAct is to promote goodwill, understanding and peace through student service - so that with the committed citizenship and effective leadership they can improve the quality of life of their school, local and global communities. At a young age, students can easily be encouraged to be caring and helpful. Young people are open to recognise the dignity and worth of each individual, thereby building their respect for others. Earlyacters engage in character building activities that prepare them for leadership roles - they carry out projects which benefit others. In addition to supporting their school’s Breakfast Club, the EarlyAct Club has initiated a Backpack Project to help those experiencing homelessness. Three members of the board of the new Earlyact club - President Lily, Vice President Tahlia, and Treasurer Ruby discussed their project to the club below.

RAWCS Bushfire Relief Fund

story thumbnail
Rotary Donations to those affected by the Adelaide Hills and Kangaroo Island fires in 2019-2020
 
Following the fires in the Adelaide Hills in December 2019, then District Governor Tim Klar assembled a Bushfire Recovery Committee to start planning ways in which Rotary could assist those adversely impacted.  A fundraising appeal through Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) was established with the original intent to support those affected by the Adelaide Hills fires, however as a result of the devastating fires on Kangaroo Island this RAWCS appeal was extended in scope to cover all of South Australia.  The major focus was on medium to long term recovery projects such as providing fencing materials and volunteers to install fencing – a service that Rotarians have provided with great success in past fire recovery projects. There were many organisations, as well as all levels of government, who are more appropriately placed as first responders in times of natural disasters so the bulk of our efforts will be in the recovery phases and we expect that this will extend well into 2021.  
 
The Rotary Club of Campbelltown donated $15,000 to this project and has provided additional funding to local CFS in other projects.
