This is Neil here and I have been presented with an amazing opportunity that inspired me to get involved and share it with Rotaract, as I need help from willing people to become facilitators and to take on a leading role in the project.

I have been asked to represent our State of WA on a Nationwide initiative called Project Australia, that aims to organise a nation-wide night of discussion to be held on 2nd of December 2006 for young people, asking the simple question of “what can we do about the future of Australia.”

On December 2, 2006, people in towns and cities around Australia will assemble in small groups to discuss what concerns them most about where Australia is heading and what they can do to create a better future.

I sent this to you because I know you might be interested and intrigued about what happens in Australia and the wider world. And it is something simple and relatively painless to get involved in. The idea is for facilitators to offer to host one of these meetings, with a map of meetings generated across Australia showing that youth do care, we are engaged and we do have opinions that count.

The night aims to stimulate new connections, ideas and directions forward for people who want to create a better state and Australia. The motivation was inspired by experiences of youth who feel misrepresented by left wing activism, frightened by neo-liberal ideology, distressed with religious conservatism and wary of joining an all-consuming political party. (This Project is not associated with any political party)

This is a totally new venture that has never been attempted by the youth of Australia and if you could read it and identify a few people that would be interested that would be brilliant.

We have an opportunity to make a difference or at least have some fun in the process and I am seeking any interested people willing to take on a leadership role and become a facilitator that is willing to host a meeting on December the 2nd for up to 12 or so people to discuss any and all issues they feel are relevant to the future of our country.

More information can be found at the projects website at

Cheers Neil

National Tree Day Sunday 30th
National Tree Day is Australia's biggest community tree-planting event.
Organised nationally each year by Planet Ark in association with Toyota and the AMP Foundation.

SCHOOLS TREE DAY- Friday 28th July
NATIONAL TREE DAY - Sunday 30th July

More than 350,000 volunteers celebrated National Tree Day's tenth birthday last year by giving the environment the best gift of all - the planting of one and a half million native trees and shrubs at 4,000 sites around Australia.
2,500 schools were involved in last year's event. Tree Day shows children how easy it is to help the environment, and that's what National Tree Day is all about.
Tree Day 2005 helped to repair, revegetate and restore Australia's landscape, with people from all walks of life coming together to green up Australia.
Last year, for the first time, Australians made a huge difference in their own backyards by purchasing thousands of Tree Day backyard planting packs from Coles. The planting of these local native trees will help to provide food and shelter for Australia's wildlife.
Thanks to last year's effort, the total number of trees planted since 1996 is over 9 million.Let's make this year even better as we plant our 10 millionth tree!

Australia's Biggest Morning Tea so far.

URGENT: Volunteers Needed
WHEN: Thursday 18th May
WHY: Travelling streets convincing businesses to help above charity

On Thursday 18th May a team of people are needed to travel around from 11:00am asking businesses to help support the Biggest Morning Tea by having tins or donating a part of there sales to charity for the event being held on the 25th May.

We need everyone to get involved and we have a letter from Neil thats been organised, with all the hard work completed! We need all the help we can get to walk the streets selling the event, so if anyone can help let me know. If this time is bad then let me know a time that would suit you and between us im sure we can all get out there and help spread the word and raise some needed money.

Thanks Guys,

“We had it all, fast cars, loud cars and an even bigger bang in a massive fireball of fireworks."

Cars were flying thick and fast around the corners, they were tipped over, ripped apart and stalled as roofs were ripped off and tyres fell apart before a roaring crowd. We had it all, fast cars, loud cars and an even bigger bang in a massive fireball of fireworks. One driver, was even spirited away by awaiting medics, leaving his body in ruins and me with an empty wallet. I think you know who got the raw end of that deal!! Ohh but for the love of the race!!

All this and more crashed and roared at the Quit Motorplex stands as the Rotary Club of Claremont raised funds for CANCER RESEARCH. Our club was represented by Jules and Neil, who after a fortifying Indian Dinner donned on crazy wigs and fluoro shirts, sweeping the stadium for donations. We liked to call ourselves the silver team for our crazy silver wigs and we managed to help raise over $2166 dollars for cancer research. It was good fun and for a bloody good cause!

The BBQ was a huge success and a massive THANKYOU to everyone that gave there time to help on the day, there time organising the event and their efforts to gain donations. Also a big thankyou to all our sponsors who donated food goods, with a special mention for Bakers Delight Whitford City for their huge contribution.

As a club we managed to riase about $500 dollars for Youth Focus and after the sale of cadbury chocolates we will present Youth Focus with a final cheque. Once again a big THANKYOU. The day was a huge success, a good laugh and we were even helped by the Ref fire alarm going off! A thankyou letter also needs to be sent to all those organizations that donated food stuff, signed by the President, so I need to know all the names of the businesses that we need to thank!

Twas indeed a big success :)

Poor Pip, Donatello and the Cabinet who will spend hours fixing that hair stlye!

Our Pre-Drinks Meeting & Teenage Mutant Ninja Tertle Night was a great success. Champagne was flowing, turkish bread disappeared and Tertles were falling on their backs everywhere. We had a big turn out for the event, with it being our first Guest Speaker. However the relaxed manner, helped deal with the sombre issue of youth sucide which our special Guests, Amy and Katie, from Youth Focus helped explore. It was an informative and social night, where we now have some idea of how Youth Focus helps youth in need.

A big thankyou to Amy and Katie for coming and chatting to us and even the daggy game was a good laugh! A special thankyou to Liz for purchasing all the essentials and setting up the night and Lauren for arriving in the nik of time with the all important champagne glasses. Cheers to everyone that attended and I hope you had a good night. Now lets get stuck into helping out Youth Focus.

“We had it all, fast cars, loud cars and an even bigger bang in a massive fireball of fireworks."

Cars were flying thick and fast around the corners, they were tipped over, ripped apart and stalled as roofs were ripped off and tyres fell apart before a roaring crowd. We had it all, fast cars, loud cars and an even bigger bang in a massive fireball of fireworks. One driver, was even spirited away by awaiting medics, leaving his body in ruins and me with an empty wallet. I think you know who got the raw end of that deal!! Ohh but for the love of the race!!

All this and more crashed and roared at the Quit Motorplex stands as the Rotary Club of Claremont raised funds for CANCER RESEARCH. Our club was represented by Jules and Neil, who after a fortifying Indian Dinner donned on crazy wigs and fluoro shirts, sweeping the stadium for donations. We liked to call ourselves the silver team for our crazy silver wigs and we managed to help raise over $2166 dollars for cancer research. It was good fun and for a bloody good cause!

"We laughed, we cried and then we had Hungry Jacks."

Prosh was a complete success for both UWA and for those in Rotaract that got dressed and attended. "We laughed, we cried and then we had Hungry Jacks." There was a massive turn-out and a big pat on the backs to all those who attended because our two tins were bloody heavy by the end of the event! Very heavy!

So our first event as a club group was a social, crazy outing that helped raised money for WA Disabled Sport Association, The Samaritans, Alzheimers Australia, The Palmerston Association and THE CANCER FOUNDATION :) Insiders joke.

Cheers for everyones stellar effort!

Info on Different Youth Suicide Groups operating in Australia.

Well, ive done a bit of research into the yellow ribbon program and things like that as our charity for the year. Turns out that the program was actually started in America after two parents started talking to schools because their son commited suicide. The people who came to talk to my high school were running the same program, but a western australian version. I asked and they're child died of suicide too, so they got involved. So its not western australian, though its run locally. Also looks like they are quite well supported, telstra is behind them as well, so i dont know what everyone thinks but maybe it is better to pick another charity that needs our help a bit more? With yellow ribbon there is yellow ribbons avaliable, help cards, posters and things we can distribute to promote yellow ribbon as well.

So i looked into some other organisations and things too, beyond blue is definately a good one too, completely australian based and every year each state government contributes something to help it keep running because they see the need to help people with depression, though WA is the only state that dosn't contribute anything! Its more focused on depression and they have a really great program for youth, effected by depression, suicide and those just needing help providing counselling and support for youth. They have some great stuff for distribution too, very funky badges, posters, postcards and things. Maybe its a better organisation because we know all the money goes directly to australians needing help, and theres hardly any western australian base, so we could generate a bit of publicity. Check it out and let me know what you think.. the youth initiative the australian wide initiative

and then, theres one more thats a lot more local, Youth Focus, which is a similar organisation again, its completely perth based. Youth Focus is to prevent depression, suicide and deliberate self-harm in young people between 12 and 18 years of age. Youth Focus provides youth-centred, community-based counselling, combined with family therapy and peer support services that are not provided elsewhere in Perth and west oz. They run camps and programs for kids and all that sort of thing. Things that we can help them with to get involved. theres a ball too that we can get people to go to to help raise funds and the have a specially designed umbrella that we can help sell if we want too,

So just things to think about. Get back to me on which charity you think we should support, and i'll organise what i can with them. Thought id just give everyone the opportunity to learn a little more about the people we can help though, no one seemed to know anything about the yellow ribbon program!



If you click on the link above you will be re-directed to the UWA Prosh 2006 Website!

Get involved!


There’s more to being a part of the Rotaract Club of UWA than simply attending meetings. Find a position from the list below that interests you and help take the club in a positive direction for 2006. The club’s livelihood depends on passionate, motivated people like you to lead the way!



The head honcho of the club. You must be present to chair all meetings and be ready to support, delegate to, represent and motivate the rest of the team. You are also the official representative of the club to communicate with sponsoring Rotary clubs and the community at large.


 Vice President

The VP is the President’s Wingman. You know everything the head honcho knows and offer support and assistance wherever needed. You take the meetings when the Pres can’t make it, and are the keeper of the Club diary for the year ie you liaise with other Rotaract clubs to organise events around important uni and community events.



The Secretary manages all of the club’s correspondence, except for email. You write letters and regularly check the club’s mailbox in the Guild Village. You are also the minute taker at all meetings, which you prepare after each meeting for distribution with the weekly e-newsletter.



The Treasurer holds the golden key to the club’s loot. You must watch and accurately record the money trail, using firm methods of receiving and paying out cash, collating the end of year financial reports and auditing these reports as per Rotaract policy. All training is provided by the guild and the previous treasurer.


Guild Liaison

The Guild Liaison is the communication link between the Guild and our club. You will need to represent the club at monthly Societies (SOC) Council Meetings, and haggle with the rest of the club reps for financial grants and the like. You will also help to get the club involved in Guild events like Club Olympics!


Publications Officer

You are the marketing guru for the club. You manage the website (with assistance from intelligent computer-literate people) and compile the monthly newsletter “The Beak” which is distributed to other clubs and community organisations. You are also the person who knows everything there is to know about printing and producing publicity material (don’t worry, we have a file with all the information in it).


Membership/Email Officer

You are the Rotaract Yoda. You keep the club communicating by making sure all emails are forwarded to the appropriate people, or replied to directly. You produce the weekly email bulletin which goes out to club members, other Rotaract and Rotary clubs and you maintain the contact list and keep track of the club. Good organisational skills are essential for this role.


Committee Director

The committees are the creative hands-on groups in the club. Usually, each Rotaractor is assigned to one or two committees, to bring projects to fruition under the coordination of directors for the following:

Club Service – coordinate club meetings social events and membership formalities

Community Service – coordinate projects to benefit the community

International Service – coordinate projects to benefit the international community, liaise with Rotaract clubs in other countries

Professional Development – coordinate opportunities for professional development/mentoring for the club’s members
