Our Primary Schools Rotary Four-Way Test Speaking Competition was the focus of our latest get together which took the form of an evening meeting. Six Schools – City Beach, Wembley, Churchlands, Floreat, Hale and Kapinara – were represented by Students, Teachers and Parents and together with Rotarians and Partners, there were about 80 people present to enjoy a very successful speaking competition. There were 2 Speakers from each School and they were all outstanding. The subjects were very relevant to today’s world and covered ‘Freedom of Battery Hens’, ‘Being Equitable in our Society’, ‘Children’s Rights’, ‘How Music can Benefit Society’, ‘Technology is getting too much’, ‘Communism’, ‘Substantial Farming’, ‘Organ Donations’, ‘Re-grow Australia’, ‘The Truth about Food’, ‘The Activ Foundation’, and ‘The Impact of Social Media’. All speakers were of high standard which made the judging very difficult, but the winner was Meg White of Kapinara (‘The Activ Foundation’) and the Runner-up was Zephyr Thomas of Wembley (‘How Music can Benefit Society’).  Meg and Zephyr will now go into the Rotary District Finals in the near future. Our thanks go to the Adjudicators Matthew Lane from Rostrum, Jean McSkimming and Peter Burns, as well as to Don Holywell as Timekeeper and Jeremy Wood as MC for the evening.
Libby Larsen organised two raffle Hampers which were won by a member of the Churchlands Primary School and by Cate Barlow.
Thanks go to Jeanette Wood, Eileen Nathan and Leonie Pearse for the organisation and the baking of the delicious food served during the evening. This was another successful project by our Cambridge Rotary Club!
