Rotary Eaglehawk makes starting school as simple as ABC

Getting the right start at school is the aim behind a community service project resulting in hundreds of “Prep Packs” being donated to six local primary schools by the Rotary Club of Eaglehawk.
The annual project serves to assist prep students and their families with free educational items including stationery items and a voucher from the Rotary Club Book Shop in High Street, Eaglehawk.
“Rotary is committed to supporting education not only globally but locally,” President Gary said.
“The Eaglehawk area has six primary schools that attract students from families of diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds and it’s vital Rotary plays a part in getting our next generation’s schooling off to a good start.” said Gary.
The mix of primary schools include Eaglehawk, Eaglehawk North, California Gully, Lightning Reef, St Liborius and the nearby town of Raywood.
Last year parents and students were thrilled with their Prep Packs with one parent posting on the club’s Facebook page, “I am writing to thank you for the pencil case of supplies … my son has really enjoyed using all of his gear during remote learning.”
“Globally, our goal is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy,” said Gary.
“We support education for all children and literacy for children and adults and our Prep Packs are a local initiative that makes starting school as simple as ABC.
“The Rotary Club of Eaglehawk manages a Primary School Scholarship Program which aligns with our international focus on supporting education across diverse and disadvantaged communities,” said Gary.
As prep students settle into their fulltime school hours, Rotary members have been busy ordering supplies and attending working bees to collate and fill hundreds of Prep Packs for delivery.
At our annual Rotary District Conference members of our club were delighted to present to District 9800 yet another rather large cheque - a contribution we strive to make annually.  Our members are super proud of our efforts over the last couple of years - even with reduced fund raising opportunity we have still managed to lead the way in terms of our club's recognition and support of our very own Foundation.  Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our PP Ron Payne in his role as our Club's Foundation Director. 
The Dolly Parton Imagination Library has long been a program close to our club - aligning with both the literacy and youth areas of focus of Rotary.  Andy Coldwell recently updated our club on the current broad reach throughout our community so we took the opportunity to present him with our annual contribution - this year totaling $3,000.  Pictured are L to R Andy Coldwell, Gary Frank - President RC Eaglehawk, Rotarian Rita O'Brien - manager of our Club's Second Hand Book Shop and PP John Jones - a passionate supporter of the Imagination Library.
