From SunLive 25 March 2019 - Preparing the next generation of drivers.
 
Tauranga students took part in an interactive learning experience with Road Safety Education on Monday.

Tauranga students attended the second Rotary Youth Driver Awareness (RYDA) programme on Monday, organised by Road Safety Education.

Year 12 students were taken through a series of workshops involving road safety, as 16 and 17 year olds approach the age to drive.

Road Safety Education Programme Manager Maria Lovelock says it is important for the next generation of drivers to be aware of hazards on the road.

I’ve been in New Zealand for just over two months now, and I’ll just tell you about the coolest stuff I’ve done so far.
 
Vanessa took me down to Rotorua, Whakarewarewatangaoteopetauaawahiao, (yes, really) one of the first weekend with her. I witnessed a beautiful Maori dance and singing concert, which I didn’t photograph cause I was too blown away in the moment to acknowledge my phone sitting in my pocket. They also had mini live kiwi birds, which you could see in the dark. The geysers were very impressive, and as the sun was setting the smoke turned a very pretty yellow/orange colour.
The autumn is so lovely although it’s really dry here and we haven’t had rain for maybe over a month. I changed to my last host family a few weeks ago and they are so lovely, I have two host siblings my age and we have 3 dogs. We live in the country side so I’m seeing a lot of cows lately (smelling them too). I have met all the new exchange students and it’s so strange being an oldie, I’m the only oldie and the only one speaking much German so sometimes it’s like I’m the mother of 17 teenage children. I go back to school for another year when I come home, I really want to finish NCEA. I have attached some photos below from me with the new exchange students.
 
 
Dear Tauranga Te Papa Members,
I’m currently on exchange in Moscow, Idaho of the United States. Over these past nine months I have been to many places on my exchange I thought I would share some with you all, so you could all see what it is that I have been up to, so here goes….
So far, my entire exchange has been jammed packed with traveling, changes and excitement. 
 
Work continues at Edgecume and our Community workers are at it again caught this time by the Whakatane Beacon who had the following comment: "Support for recovery has extended well beyond the Eastern Bay.

Neil's Volunteer Army knows no bounds and unfortunately there's still plenty to be done.

There are many to thank and praise. But an indisputable reason for the remarkable inroads against polio is the critical role Rotary International has played from the start, from initially proposing the goal to walking stride for stride with us in public health to defeat polio.

Here they are the intrepid team from Rotary assisting one of the Edgecumbe house owners to tidy the grounds of her home, following the breach of the Rangitaiki River stop banks protecting the BOP township of Edgecumbe  This is just one of many homes damaged by the disastrous effects of water flowing up to 1 metre deep through the area. The interior of the house was refurbished throughout by building professionals and Rotary lent a helping hand with the garden restoration work.
