Hey, thanks to everyone who supported our End Polio 'Ride Like A Girl movie event at the Middleback Arts Centre last Friday. Thanks to our major sponsor Westland Leading Edge Jewellers who provided a gift voucher of $300 for our raffle. We raised over $700 which is matched 2 for 1 by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation so overall a sum of $2,100 goes to save children from Polio. Two drops of the vaccine cost only 10c, so that's 21,000 children saved from this terrible virus
 
 
We would like to say THANK YOU to our fantastic volunteers who gave of their time to support the 2019 Science & Engineering Challenge at the Whyalla Rec. Centre on July 31st and Aug. 1st. 

More than 300 students participated and were encouraged take up STEM subjects at school to develop the next generation of researchers, scientists, IT specialists.and inventors.


As reported in the Whyalla News, Cummins Area School won the Whyalla Rotary Club Science and Engineering Challenge for the fourth time in a row with a score of 1350. Pictured from left to right are Rotary President Keith Sichler, students Arila O'Brian and Mitchell Laube, and Rotary District 9500 Governor Jane Owens.
Music has been an important part of leading an ordinary life for students at the Music School for Children With Disabilities in Honor of Paul Harris in Lublin, Poland. Founded by Rotary members, the school serves 20 students with various disabilities, including Down syndrome, autism, and visual impairments. The Rotary Club of Lublin-Centrum-Maria Curie-Sklodowska has provided funding with help from Rotary Foundation Matching Grants and the Henryk Wieniawski Musical Society, which houses the school.
 
After their son Mateusz was born with underdeveloped eyes, Mariusz and Joanna Kania looked for ways to help him be active. When he showed an aptitude for music, they looked for a teacher and were thrilled to find the Paul Harris music school.
Throughout India and around the world, Rotary clubs are celebrating a major milestone: India has gone three years without a new case of polio. The last reported case was a two-year-old girl in West Bengal on 13 January 2011. To mark this historic triumph, Rotary clubs illuminated landmarks and iconic structures throughout the country with four simple but powerful words, "India is polio free."
 
The three-year achievement sets the stage for polio-free certification of the entire Southeast Asia region by the World Health Organization. The Indian government also plans to convene a polio summit in February to commemorate this victory in the global effort to eradicate polio.
