 In 2021, Rotary in Australia and New Zealand is celebrating the first 100 years of service.


In 1921, four Rotary Clubs were established in Melbourne, Wellington, Auckland and Sydney.  From there, Rotary and Rotaract Clubs were created everywhere across Australia and New Zealand. 


As we celebrate our first 100 years, we continue to aspire to 

- connect in many dimensions

- explore infinite possibilities

- demonstrate that we are fresh and ready for regeneration

- envelope and embrace people, wherever they may be, whatever their background


Converting our celebration into action, we are working on a number of projects that will further demonstrate our commitment to our community - locally, nationally and internationally. 

Turning the first sod of the Wellness Pavilion, Rosebud Secondary College.


The Rotary Club of Rosebud-Rye is proud to partner with Rosebud Secondary College in the bold new and innovative creation of the Wellness Pavilion.


This has been a long time coming - and we're delighted that the building is finally underway. Some years ago, the Rotary Club of Rosebud-Rye provided seed funding to assist the College to get their fundraising underway, and we have continued to work with Geoff Seletto and the team at the College in bringing this project to reality. 

District Interact Conference

Saturday 27th March, Nossal High School, Berwick


What is Interact?

Interact clubs are one of Rotary’s Youth Programs and are for 12 to 18 year old Secondary Students. They provide opportunities to –

  • connect with the community and school,
  • develop teamwork and leadership through service projects
  • encourage international understanding

Paul, Adele, Jo and Claire represented Rotary Rosebud Rye at the Conference which was hosted by Kate Wilde (Human Development Workshop), with District Governor Mark Humphries leading the opening and closing ceremonies.  They were treated to a wonderful display of Interact in action. 


Four Interact Clubs operate within District 9820:

-        - Interact Club of Frankston High School sponsored by the Rotary Club of Frankston Sunrise and Peninsula Rotaract Club;

-        - Interact Club of Monterey Secondary College, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Frankston North;

-        - Interact Club of St Margaret’s and Berwick Grammar, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Berwick;


-       -  Lowanna College Interact, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Moe.  


Each Interact Club made a presentation covering their Club’s unique projects. They included

- a Donation Drive for pantry items and personal (hygiene) items, and

-        - a Backpacking event which involved three levels of interaction within Rotary - Interact, Rotaract and Rotary Club.


A model for the development of ideas was presented - ALTER - from Vic SRC (Student Representative Council).  ALTER stands for- Ask, Listen, Think, Enact, Reflect - and embodies a process of participation and collaboration.


A further exciting event for District 9820 was the launch of ‘Padlet’ – an online platform specifically for Interact Clubs to connect, share information, photos, ideas and feedback with other Interact club members.  It is simple and easy for Interactors to join - just scan a QR code or go to a District 9820 website. It was clearly stated - this is not for Rotarians!
