Tertiary Scholarship Students  Charlotte Eden and Naomi Nickels. Both students are now in their final year of Scholarship support from Rotary Club of Kalamunda.
Charlotte Eden - Arts Scholarship.  Fine Arts and Anthropology Degree
In the last year she has been involved in a variety of volunteer and paid work which has supported and enhanced her studies. These included: tutoring Art to Yr 5 pupils, acting as Production Assistant for small businesses eg Midland Railway Workshop, developing badges, tablecloths etc for sale on Rottnest and Kanyana Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, representing Curtin University as promotion officer for its Humanities studies, assisting with Mundaring Arts and Cultural Centre, designing and painting at new High Wycombe Railway Station, screen printing for Aquafest, assisting at Women's Health Workshop. The list is endless! She has won a number of Awards for her work.
Her Rotary grant has enabled her to purchase an iPad Pro for digital archive. She hopes to do a 4th year Honours degree and when completed, would like to be an Exhibition Co-ordinator working full time at Art Hub in the Northbridge Culture and Arts Centre.
Naomi Nickels - Science Scholarship.  Animal Science and Health Degree
Her main highlights from last year of study was all the work placements at farms and sanctuaries. These included: Horse Stud farm in Bullsbrook, Merino Sheep farm in Beverley, tagging and vaccinating animals, working on a cattle station in East Pilbara assisting the Vet, working at Wildlife Hospital in Mandurah and a Dairy farm in Northcliffe. Her Rotary Grant was used for plane tickets to Pilbara and Port Hedland during her work experience placements and purchase of new iPad. She regularly volunteers at Karrakin Cockatoo Sanctuary, Armadale Reptile Centre, Equine Hospital and is a Volunteer Firefighter and also a Leader in local Youth Club. She has finally achieved her goal of being accepted into the VET Course which will require another 4 years of study.
RYLEAP  Rotary Youth Leader Extension Award  Programme - Matt Alexander and Josh Crisp,  Kalamunda Rotaracters
Having successfully completed the RYLA Programme both Matt and Josh attended the above course at Woodman Point in January. This Leadership course provides Cert 2 TAFE qualification.
Matt went through his experiences and identified how these activities helped in preparation for individual development. He talked about Control, Presentation Skills, Visualisation etc. He enjoyed the rigidity of structure in the Programme. He was able to identify its progression from RYLA, which he completed 4 years ago. He is very grateful to Kalamunda Rotary for this sponsorship and reflected that 7 years ago, he was the recipient of the National Youth Science Forum grant.
Josh completed RYLEAP last year and found that this Camp pulled him out of his normal routine and provided opportunity to reflect and think for yourself. He realised having his own business was too much pressure and stress and this course gave him the confidence to change jobs and  work for another business. He found the section on Financial and information planning most useful. Anchoring, another facet of the course was reinforced from RYLEAP and involved mechanisms to use when in an uncomfortable situation. He gave an example of shutting the Roller Door at his work as a sign of saying goodbye for the day.
Proposed Alumni Programme for past Scholarship or other recipients of Rotary funding.  PDG Rob Lyons suggested having a group of past alumni and encouraging them to join Rotaract.
Krys will be sending RYLA information to the two most recent students.
