Sebastien Krueger, a student at Swinburne Senior Secondary College will be packing his bags this January to travel to the nation's capital for the twelve-day program designed to give students a broader understanding of the diverse study and career options available in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics), and to encourage continued studies in these fields. 
 
The joint Christmas Party with Rotary Hawthorn on Tuesday positively hummed with friendship and seasonal goodwill. More than 100 Rotarians and guests from the Rotary clubs of Glenferrie and Hawthorn were joined at the Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club by District Governor Amanda Wendt for a memorable evening of opera classics, musical theatre favourites and familiar Christmas carols. The revellers were treated to an evening of beautiful music from tenor Ben Glover, soprano Leah Phillips and pianist Alex Byrne and the undeniable Ellis(less) Carollers, the latter leading the throng in Christmas carols, one or two with some interesting changes to the wording.

Congratulations to the Christmas Party Committee led by PP Dr Mark Ellis AM and comprising Rotarians from both clubs on creating a wonderful event to finish the year.
 
The club is now on summer holidays. Wishing you all a very merry Christmas, and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

Rotary membership helps you build lasting friendships, strong networks, additional skills and greater confidence.
Programs often start with just one motivated person seeing an opportunity and then making it happen with the support of Rotary's global resources behind them.
Rotary celebrated 100 years of making a difference in Australia and New Zealand in 2021. Join with us as we embark on our next 100 years of service to our community.
