On 11 August Queenscliffe Rotary Club brought RYDA (Rotary Youth Driver Awareness) to Geelong for the first time.
The focus of the award winning program is "My life. My choices" and students were challenged to evaluate their decisions as drivers and passengers.
Students from Bellarine Secondary College, Geelong Lutheran College, North Geelong Secondary College, St Josephs College and Western Heights College, joined the over 450,000 students in Australia and New Zealand who have participated in the program.

Rotarians, partners and friends celebrated another successful year on July 9th at Athelstane in Queenscliff.
Projects the Club has supported in the past year include: a new response vehicle for Queenscliff CFA, a surfing weekend for refugees, picnic tables for Point Lonsdale and Queenscliff Primary Schools, a drug awareness forum, lighting the Point Lonsdale Christmas Tree, Rotary Bowelscan, books for newborns, literacy awards for primary students, sending an exchange student to Denmark, Udalo School in the Philippines, Vietnam autism project, Fiji tsunami appeal and the RYDA road safety program.
Pictured are ongoing President Wayne Pecar and Assistant District Governor Kathy Ryan standing in front of our new promotional display.
Almost 1300 people were amazed by the imaginative and detailed creations from members of Melbourne LEGO User Group. The display was opened by Hon. Lisa Neville MP, Member for Bellarine and Minister for Police & Water. Hundreds of children spent many happy hours creating in the LEGO play area and at the colouring competition provided by Ocean Grove Supertoys/Dizzy Toys, who also ran their popular retail area.
Part of our local literacy program is the provision of books for newborns in the Borough of Queenscliffe. We have been doing this for several years and well over 200 books have been handed out over this time.
Seen in the photo is Rotarian Marianne Deacon (at right) providing a new supply of books to Jackie Petersen, nurse at the Queenscliff Maternal Child & Health Centre.
The Rotary Club of Queenscliffe, supported by a grant from our Rotary District 9780, has provided significant funding to YMCA's Camp Wyuna at Queenscliffe.
The funding was for the construction of an adventure challenge course that will both be fun and help develop leadership skills.
