Club News

The Rotary Club of Alice Springs has the honour to announce that Jordyn Kindness, of St Philips College Alice Springs, was awarded the 2019 John Hawkins Memorial Scholarship.
Jordyn will study in Adelaide, either Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (BM BS or MB BS, depending in which university) or Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS).
Good health and good teeth - people spend a lifetime trying to hold onto both.
May Jordyn have a long and rewarding career.

The Rotary Education committee and had the pleasure of interviewing seven very worthy candidates for the scholarship and the pain of selecting just one among equals.
Congratulations to Jordyn and to all who've applied.

 

The Bill van Dijk Post Graduate Education Award is awarded annually in recognition of a past Rotarian, the late Willem ('Bill') Van Dijk, for his services to Education.
 
After careful consideration the panel awarded the scholarship to Jeanette Shepherd for her Graduate Diploma of Emergency and Disaster Management at Charles Darwin University.
Given the disasters that are happening in the world I am sure that this will be beneficial.
 
The Selection Panel, after much discussion, also awarded an encouragement award to Amy Wilson who plans on studying for a Bachelor of Primary Education (Hons) at the University of South Australia.
When you meet these applicants one realizes the impact that these scholarships can have on a person’s life. Education has many challenges and it is always very rewarding to receive their reports and to watch their progress.
 
Rotary’s 2017-18 International President, Australia’s Ian Riseley, wants a trachoma-free Australia by 2021, Rotary’s 100th year in Australia. The World Health Organisation has a global goal to eliminate trachoma by 2020. Trachoma is an infectious eye disease that can be prevented with good hygiene practices. But it is still present in remote Aboriginal communities and can lead to permanent blindness. The work of the Australian Government, the Fred Hollows Foundation and Indigenous Eye Health to treat trachoma infections has seen rates in affected communities reduced substantially. But now, we need to ensure that hygiene practices and the community environments are improved to completely eliminate the disease.
