Rotary Youth Exchange Information Evenings
Rotary operates one of a select few real exchange programmes - for each student we welcome to our Club/city/country, Rotary sends a student out to another place around the world.
The most powerful force in the promotion of international understanding and peace is exposure to different cultures. The world becomes a smaller, friendlier place when we learn that all people regardless of nationality desire the same basic things: a safe, comfortable environment that allows for a rich and satisfying life for our children and ourselves. Youth Exchange provides thousands of young people with the opportunity to meet people from other lands and to experience their cultures. This plants the seeds for a lifetime of international understanding.
If you know a 'stand-out' young person who is ready to seize this opportunity, please speak with Tracey and let them know about the upcoming information evenings!


Entries for this year’s event are trickling in as is sponsorship from participating Clubs and with the deadline for entries set for a March 6th cut-off. We hope that no one gets missed out through lateness as Ainie Kwok our Director is strict on the date, due to operational difficulties.
The event is on March 27, 28 & 29th and is again being held at Kokako Lodge at the Hunua Falls with a maximum of 70 Students plus leaders.
Help Required!!!!!!!  Due to trying to fit in an expanded programme we have decided to drop the Saturday and Sunday Breakfast Duties from the Students which will save over 30 minutes.
By doing this we need some help. So, we are seeking 3 or 4 volunteers for each morning to take up the after-Breakfast Clean-up Duties. 
Please contact me if you would like to assist? 
Cheers George

In previous years this walk in the Park has been a massive hit.  Get along and enjoy the outdoors ... full details below.  FREE event.
  • Come enjoy a morning walk before Winter hits……..
  • 9am start at Cornwall Park Rotunda (the one by the café & close to carpark)
  • The park is approx. 5km long with no need for a map, as route will be laid out for you. Just need to follow the colourful windmills showing you where to turn. (Please note you can turn around at any time during walk & do at your own pace etc. It is not a race……)
Some points to note:
  • Cornwall Park don’t allow any type of fundraising, so please respect their wishes on this.
  • We are however allowed to do this ourselves, so a gold coin donation for the walk would be awesome, & proceeds going to Polio Plus.
  • Dress up in Rotary colours, whether it be your green Woman in Rotary colour, club colours/t-shirts. Feel free to add tutu’s or other Rotary bling.
  • Bring your friends & family as the more the merrier. Everyone welcome
