Youth Exchange Student Visit
Our Six Exchange Students with Shona
It was a busy night at Papanui Rotary last Thursday with Club Member Shona, who organises our involvement in the programme, introducing us to six of the Rotary Youth Exchange students currently being sponsored by Rotary Clubs throughout the South Island. 
They are:
  • Calix from France based in Waimate.
  • Hanna from Sweden based in Queenstown.
  • Ana from Brazil based in Christchurch.
  • Lilly from Austria based in Invercargill.
  • Eugenio from Chile based in Cromwell.
  • Erina from Switzerland based in Wanaka.
We also had Kegan join us who will be going to Brazil.
Each student spoke briefly about themselves and how their experiences or planned experiences are going so far.  They are finding it a great opportunity to experience a variety of new activities, learn about Rotary and make new friends. 
Kegan also spoke briefly about being proud and excited about his upcoming overseas placement and the opportunity this gives him to develop and grow.
It has been suggested that Rotary Exchange experiences can move participants up to seven years ahead in their personal development when they return home. 
Shona closed the session by suggesting that one of the key advantages of this programme is: “We can change the world one student at a time.”
Nick thanked Shona for her hard work and the students for their visit and commented on the resurgence this valuable programme contributes to potential new generational membership.
Visitors from Abroad!
Karen & Andy with Exchange Students
We were privileged to host Karen and Andy McKean from the South Jeffco Rotary Club who visited us last week.
Andy shared some of the activities they are involved with which includes a big involvement in working side by side with Roterac that brings people aged 18-30 together to exchange ideas with leaders in the community, develop leadership & professional skills and have fun through service.
Club banners were swapped by Andy and President Keith.
E-Day This Saturday

Are there computers, monitors, printers, mobile phones, small household appliances and TVs gathering dust in your garage? This is an opportunity to give your old electronics a new home.
The team at Kilmarnock have partnered with Rotary to host this year’s E-Day in Christchurch.
When: Saturday November 23rd 
Where: outside all Warehouse Stationary stores.
Time: 10am - 4pm
The concept behind the E-Waste programme is one person’s trash is another person’s treasure.
The Kilmarnock team dismantle a variety of electronics that are deemed to be at the end of their life to recover the maximum amount of recyclable materials. This process also ensures that hazardous substances don’t make their way into landfill.
Once dismantled, products are sent these to another local organisation who converts them into raw materials that other industries require to produce new products.
Kilmarnock will really appreciate your support and donations.
Gift Wrapping
After 10 years working in conjunction with Northlands Mall, they have radically revised the criteria for gift wrapping.
Following a survey of club members where the response clearly indicated low numbers being able to attend the compulsory training, the Board have regretfully advised Northlands that our club will not be involved in the gift wrapping project this year.
Xmas Rotary Papanui Entertainment Group

A reminder from Kate that an invitation to entertain residents has been received from Bupa Parklands Care Home for Saturday 30 November and 7 December from 1:30pm until 2:30pm.

If you can make it please feel free to dress in your Christmas regalia to delight the residents.

Songs we will be covering include Snoopy's Christmas, White Christmas, Winter Wonderland plus some Christmas carols.

All welcome.
Ladies Breakfast Reminder
Our speaker for the 28th of November is Gary Quarless, Principal of Allenvale School, accompanied by Bev Wall, parent and recipient of gift wrapping last year.
Allenvale is a special school in Christchurch catering for young people with disabilities. The school has staff comprising teachers, therapists and teaching assistants and provides programmes for students aged between 5 and 21 across a variety of settings.
Allenvale is focused on meeting the needs of each student and engaging with parents, whanau and community. Senior students are often involved in work placements, polytechnic courses and a variety of community programmes.
We look forward to hearing from Gary and Bev.
Thought for the week …
It’s really hard to listen to the William Tell Overture without thinking of the Lone Ranger.
