PP Rob Sturrock will be giving a short Anzac orientated talk on Women and Children left behind when their menfolk went off to war in 1914-18.
Anica Wong + Bethany Walker on the National Youth Science Forum (NYSF)
Anica and Bethany are from Queenwood School for Girls. Our club sponsored each of them with $500 towards the fee for the NYSF Year 12 program.
The NYSF is a not-for-profit organisation that runs a number of programs to encourage young people in their passion for science. Rotary is the Founding Partner of NYSF and today the 21 local Rotary districts across Australia continue to conduct selections for the NYSF Year 12 Program on behalf of the NYSF.
The NYSF is delivered by youth for youth. Past participants return each year to participate in the Student Staff Leadership Program and help run the program the year after they first attend. https://nysf.edu.au/programs/year-12-program
The program that Anica & Bethany attended ran on weekdays between 10-24 January 2023 and was delivered as a mixed-mode experience – a combination of in-person and digital events.
Throughout the program, participants engaged with optional activities such as the STEM Challenges, The Great Debate and the NYSF Talent Show.
