Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment (RYPEN)

Earlier this year Rebecca attended the RYPEN weekend.  This evening she will tell our members about her weekend.

'The Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment (RYPEN) provides a group of young people aged 14-17 an opportunity to develop valuable leadership skills.

This weekend-long program will see you engage with like-minded people while having fun and learning new skills in areas such as problem-solving and public speaking.

On top of learning these skills, RYPEN will give you a chance to put them to practical use, through debate and physical activity'.

Royal Automobile Association (RAA) Road Rules Quiz

Penny was born and raised in Adelaide she trained as a Primary Teacher and then taught at a range of Primary and Secondary Schools.  Apart from brief stints as a waitress in Harrods, an invoice Clerk in Liberty's of London, and an insurance teller, she worked mostly as a teacher-librarian and ESL teacher for forty years before retiring from full-time work to spend more time with her grandchildren and traveling.  She has presented papers on South Australian Tourism and Resource-based Learning to teaching students in China.

Having used the services of the RAA since she was sixteen she is happy to talk about their wonderful service to the South Australian Motoring Community to make up for all the times her old Mini broke down in early teaching days.

 

RAA works with

The SA community, schools, and other like-minded organisations to deliver a range of education programs that aim to improve road safety in our state.
From practical demonstrations on how to set your car up for a safe and comfortable drive, to hosting the largest youth road-safety event in SA, we have programs for all ages. Plus, they’re completely free. 

Years Ahead: Road Rules Quiz is an interactive presentation that covers both general road rules and give-way rules. We have two different sessions to test your knowledge with well-established, misunderstood, and new laws while, having a bit of fun. Each participant receives a ‘clicker’ at the presentation to record their answers; the group’s responses are then displayed in real-time on the screen. The presentation covers:

  • often misunderstood road rules
  • new road rules
  • what to do after a crash.

StandBy
StandBy

StandBy Support After Suicide is a national, federally funded, free service operating across Australia. Anglicare SA provides the service to the whole of South Australia.  StandBy is a suicide bereavement response service that provides a 24-hour coordinated community crisis response to families, friends and associates who have been bereaved through suicide.

StandBy is available to people, families, friends, associates, witnesses, schools, workplaces, groups and individuals, emergency and community responders and whole communities affected by suicide.  This service is available to people bereaved by a recent or past suicide.  Because people grieve in very different ways, support services may not be required for many weeks, months or even years in some cases.  Whenever help is needed StandBy will be there to provide support and assistance.

Standby can also provide professional development sessions, briefer information sessions, and run community workshops - all without cost
