November 2018
World Festival of Magic

The World Festival of Magic at the Darling Harbour Theatre on November 10th 2018 was a great success for all concerned! Seeing so many disadvantaged children and their families totally caught up in the mysteries of stage magic so moved President Allan and our other members present, they can’t stop telling everyone about it! Our sincere thanks have already been passed to Bruce West, Mike Dillon, the performers and their teams who organised and presented this wonderful event so well. We also wish to acknowledge the very generous support of the northern Sydney business community, which sponsored all the families attending the Show. We look forward to continuing our involvement with the World Festival of Magic for many years to come!

July 2020
Australia Drought Relief

We have joined with Molong Rotary to deliver Financial Support to the families of Molong who were going through the greatest drought in living memory. We celebrated the success of our joint venture by visiting Molong and attending the Drought Relief Celebratory Dinner hosted by the Molong Rotary. The Molong Central School Captain and the Mayor of the Cabonne Shire made Thank You speeches.

Molong is situated about 40Km west of Orange. Financial Support was provided to a number of families via vouchers to be spent in the town at supermarkets, petrol stations and butchers etc. Thus, we were able to assist  both residents and businesses. Secondly, there are many farming families in need, the Rotary Clubs decided to help everybody equally through the schools; the children are victims of this drought, going without things that in the past were counted as needs. We supported 430 students of Molong Central School and St Joseph’s School.

June 2018
Books in Homes at Stuart Town

Three members of the Rotary Club of North Sydney Sunrise were delighted to be able to attend the book presentation facilitated by Books in Homes Australia at the Stuart Town Public School late in June. The 11 enrolled students and several staff were outnumbered on the day by many visitors to the school, who were also there to thank the retiring principal, Mrs Joy Wyner for her many years of service.

The RCNSS has been supporting the Books in Homes Australia project at Stuart Town since 2010 and it was very gratifying for us to see the growing library at the school, an important by-product of the offering of books to each student at the end of every term. Many of the books in the library celebrate Aboriginal culture and the students all now receive lessons in the local Wiradjuri language, a dictionary of which is available for reference.

Following the presentation of books, the students participated in planting trees to create a much needed wind break. This initiative was sponsored by the RCNSS in honour of the goal set by the 2017-18 President of Rotary International, Australian Ian Riseley for Rotarians everywhere to ‘make a difference’ by planting trees.
