Meeting 27th August 2019
Notwithstanding the number of members being overseas there was a good roll-up on Tuesday.
President Sam has received a call from Barry Antees imploring him to have members involved in the Graffiti Removal Day as there are some non-Rotary volunteers in Liverpool who want to work but need Rotary leadership.
Treasurer Gary advises that there are a couple of stragglers in attending to their membership dues.
He also reported that the bucket collection that Frans Buskermolen organised at his birthday party raised $1765 for drought relief
Youth Director Tissa Perera has informed local schools of Club funding being available for school projects. He also advised that the Sri Lankan Education Project has commenced funding sponsored students.
Vocational Director Shiva has received two nominations for Pride of Workmanship Awards and one application for the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards.
Jim Rudling has made a presentation to the sub-clubs of Mounties to interest them in the work of Rotary generally and Liverpool West specifically. Within the sub-clubs there are two golf clubs and they both expressed interest in the Club’s Golf Day.
Jim has collected Natalia after her final operation which lasted seven and a half hours. She will recuperate at Jim’s home for the next five weeks before returning to West Papua.
Jim showed a presentation of the Natalia Project from start to current which he had also shown the Mounties sub-club meeting.
Jim Leahy has spoken the members of Oberon and Narromine Clubs to ask about what assistance Liverpool West might provide. Both clubs report that they do some local fundraising but have received little support from elsewhere.
The Guest Speaker was Chris New from The Story Factory. Founded in 2012, Story Factory is a not-for-profit creative writing centre for marginalised young people aged 7 to 17.
The Story Factory believes that stories have the power to change lives with research showing that quality arts-based learning significantly improves social and emotional wellbeing.
Story Factory workshops have been designed by creative writing and literacy experts to build literacy, confidence, and creativity: essential skills young people need to shape their future.
Story Factory programs are delivered exclusively in areas with a Family and Occupational Index (FOEI) above 100, with high populations of young people who are Indigenous or from non-English speaking backgrounds - those most at risk of poor literacy, leaving school early, and significantly reduced life outcomes.
Currently, there are Learning Centres at Redfern and Parramatta
The Story Factory not only works with young people, but also with their teachers, schools, family members, and communities to build a supportive, sustainable learning environment unique to their specific needs. Programs range from a one-off workshop to year-long school residencies and Teacher Professional Learning programs.
The Story Factory is conducting programs in several Liverpool schools
To demonstrate the work that the Story Factory does Chris engaged the members in a simple task of constructing a poem by writing down the answers to a series of questions.
