Some Current and Recent Projects

Partnership with Eastbourne Primary School develops further


Students at Eastbourne Primary School will soon be able to enjoy the benefits of having a new Wellbeing Hub which is currently being built.


The Club has furthered the partnership with the school in providing funding to assist with the purchase of furniture and fittings for the new Wellbeing Hub, which includes consulting rooms, break-outs, a quiet space, and a place for just discovering yourself! 

National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) Students share their experiences


On 27 July 2022, three Year 12 science students from Rosebud Secondary College gave an impressive and informative report on their interaction with like-minded students, presentations with scientists and the opportunity to network with others, through the National Youth Science Forum. 


It was heartwarming to hear how they had grown and gained so much from their experience. Their teacher also provided updates on past students who had attended previous NYSF Forums, also sponsored by the Club, and the work they have gone on to do. 

Support for Drought and Bushfire Relief for East Gippsland


The ongoing plight of so many farmers affected by the horrific bushfires while they work to regenerate their land has been recognised by the Club in a grant for re-pasteurising of damaged land.

We were pleased to be able to support the Drought and Bushfire Relief Fund with a top-up of funds raised through the highly successful Ride to Conference.

Peninsula Trail Project

New BBQ Shelter to be built on the Capel Sound Foreshore

A new partnership with the Capel Sound Foreshore committee leads to next development in bringing the Peninsula Trail Project to fruition.  

As part of the project which brings together all of the Rotary Clubs across the Mornington Peninsula in partnership with the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council, Rotary Rosebud-Rye is partnering with the Capel Sound Foreshore Committee in building a BBQ Shelter adjacent to the Peninsula Trail, as it winds through the beautiful Capel Sound Foreshore reserve.

After a presentation at the Club Meeting, the Board approved this project at its meeting on 17 August, 2022. It is to be finished by Christmas 2022, just in time for enjoyment of campers, bike riders and local community members.

Watch this space for updates as this work gets underway.
