“Our Greatest Natural Resource is the Minds of Our Young Children”, Walt Disney
The Rotary Club of Hornsby District (RCoHD) believes in assisting the future generation with their career goals and providing opportunities within and outside of Rotary programs. In addition to our work with Rotaract Clubs, the RCoHD also supports students from regional schools in New South Wales. The program offers mentorship to Year 10 students, who are placed in different organisations in Sydney to gain practical work experience.
The first school the club coordinated with was Trundle Central School and then later Tottenham Central School. Funds are raised by members through a fun and light session during weekly meetings through club members.
The club’s Vocational Director coordinates with a nominated teacher from Tottenham Central School to transport the chosen students to Sydney for a week. Funds by the club are used to support the students during their stay.Tottenham Information
Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (A1AD)
The Rotary Club of Hornsby District was graced by the presence of Dr. Gaynor Heading who gave a very informative presentation of this common genetic disorder. Since then, we have taken it upon ourselves to not only learn more about the condition but raise awareness about it too.
