Developing our Youth for the future
Applecross Rotary is pleased to have sponsored Liam Martin from Mt Nasura School to RYPEN. Congratulations Liam Martin.
RYPEN provides a group of young people aged 15-17 an opportunity to develop valuable leadership skills. This weekend long program will see them engage with like-minded people, while having fun and learning new skills in areas such as problem solving and public speaking. On top of learning these skills RYPEN will give them a chance to put them to practical use, through debate and physical activity.
Applecross Rotary is sponsoring Su-En from PERTH MODERN School to the National Youth Science Program. Congratulations Su – En.
The National Youth Science Forum - NYSF is for Year 11 students passionate about science, NYSF gives an opportunity to visit a large variety of some of Australia’s leading scientific facilities and talk to many of our top scientists enabling informed career choices to be made. It's also a fantastic opportunity to meet like-minded people and establish professional relations and life-long friendships.
