From the President's Desk

Hello fellow Rotarians,
 
Last week we hosted the RYPEN students from Papakura High school and they did themselves proud. It was great to see the confidence they had gained over the weekend and it truly is a great programme to support.
 
Tracey and I are off to New York for ten days to celebrate Madison’s 21st Birthday with her so that should be fun. Will let you guys know how we go.
 
Also remember we will not be meeting on the 18th and 25th of April so enjoy the break and make the most of the Sun while it lasts.
 
 
Quote of the week;
 
This one is written by H. Jackson Brown Jnr. “Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more but actually those that are giving more.”
 
 
See you all in a couple of weeks,
 
Regards,
Jon.

Rotary Youth Exchange
A great update from our Outbound student Caitlin Norvil, who is in Austria on Rotary Youth Exchange.
 
September was an eventful month from spending a week in Salzburg with my best exchange friends, to hiking in -3 degrees, to switching host families and starting school again.

Rotary National Science & Technology Forum - Update
 
 
The 30th Rotary National Science and Technology Forum - Update
Lovely feedback from 1 of the 2 students who attended this forum in January.
 
Liam Nelson - Papakura High School 
Just emailing as sadly the forum has come to an end, a forum that was probably the best 2 weeks of my life and I just want to thank you and the Papakura Rotary Club for all your support and for giving me the opportunity to attend such an amazing event. The forum was quite frankly everything I expected and so much more. 
Thanks so much once again.
