Year 10 RYDA Program
On Thursday, 14 September, all Year 10 students will take part in the Rotary Youth Driver Awareness (RYDA) program.
This is a road safety program aimed at reducing death and injury amongst young people on Australian roads. It focuses on attitude and awareness of young people as both drivers and passengers.
This one-day program at the Hobart Showgrounds will consist of six interactive sessions conducted by local police, driving instructors, crash survivors, drug and alcohol experts and financial counsellors. All sessions are conducted by professional speakers in their field of expertise.
Students will need to make their own travel arrangements to and from the Showgrounds Grandstand via the Howard Road entrance, for a program beginning at 9.15am and concluding by 2.30pm. Rotary have asked that students not be dropped off inside the Showgrounds except if using a school bus.
All students are required to wear their formal school uniform for this program. Bring a coat if the weather is wet.
Rotary will be holding a barbecue for the students. Costs are $2 per sausage, $2 per can of soft drink or $5 for 2 sausages and can of soft drink.
Any queries can be directed to Ludmila Vitesnikova, especially concerns regarding the nature of the program. If any students have had a personal experience of road trauma could Ludmila please be informed prior to the event so that appropriate support is provided on the day.

Chumkriel Cambodian School Goods Drive
Chumkriel Language School is located in South-East Cambodia and provides education to over 900 low socio-economic families who are so poor that most children have to work in the fields daily and are unable to complete their education. The school is run almost entirely from donations, and they are in dire need of good quality, second hand recreational, educational and health related materials, such as stationery items, picture books, board and card games, soft toys, tennis balls, old soccer boots, skipping ropes and new toothbrushes. If you have any of these items please bring them to the donation boxes in the High School Library from Monday, 11 September.
Items will be collected from 11 September to the 27 September. Any queries to Ruby van Ommen-Brown or Karina Churchill (High School Service Coordinator).
