District Governor Ron Payne, an Educator whose career spanned 47 years, was delighted to present the 2023 Hobsons Bay Rotary Teacher Awards to the following teachers nominated by their schools:
  • Three Encouragement Awards for early career stage teachers.
  • One Achievement Award to Dean Commons, an experienced Drama teacher at Williamstown HS for his role in coordinating the Music Production Fame which ran for six shows with a 90% sell out rate in a 350-seat theatre.
  • One Team Award for a team which had collaborated effectively to address an important new development.
Education fuels innovation and progress. That's why Rotary members encourage lifelong learning, exchanging ideas and inspiring generations of problem solvers.
How appropriate that D9800 showcased our Australia Day Community Event Recognition with a photo of School Principal Lenore Thornton (retired) in action...
And congratulations to DG Amanda Wendt and Club Service Chair Rosemary Waghorne on revamping the District Recognition Program based on ten "People of Action" criteria.
Attending the Rotary International Convention in Melbourne is a remarkable achievement for any Rotaractor, particularly those from developing countries. While in Melbourne, the students will have the opportunity to connect with the global Rotary community and showcase the community service projects of the Rotaract Club of Siem Reap at the House of Friendship, as well as speak at several of D9800's clubs. They are eager to gain new insights and experiences during their time in Australia, which they can then bring back to Cambodia and share with the students of CRST and the Rotaract Club of Siem Reap.
We are excited to have received a West Gate Neighbourhood Fund Grant for our Hobsons Bay Wynspeak Heat at the Altona Theatre on 4 May 2023. 
Wynspeak is a Youth Public Speaking Competition for Secondary School Students in the Western Suburbs of Melbourne.
The West Gate Neighbourhood Fund is a Victorian Government initiative that is helping not-for-profit organisations in Melbourne's inner west to support their communities while the West Gate Tunnel Project is being built.

Past President Jan Douglas was delighted to present the inaugural Rotary Altona City Citizenship Award to Alex Gatt, a member of the inaugural Year 12 graduating class at Altona College. Congratulations Alex!
We look forward to further discussions with Altona College, in the new year, about potential interest in Earlyact, and a Pilot Mock Job Interview program.
Altona City Rotary's cycling group conducted a bicycle safety lesson for members of the Vietnamese Association in Hobsons Bay. A great use for the Louis Joel Carpark, and a wonderful afternoon. Many of these women grew up riding bikes in Vietnam and came out to Australia in the 80s as boat people. Afterwards, a Vietnamese banquet was shared.
