THE STUDENT PROGRAM THIS YEAR
In the Rotary/corporate year commencing the 1st of July 2019 Rotary will run two youth training voyages on the One & All. Both voyages are for five days and are timed to run in the school holidays in 2019 and again in 2020.
The 1st Voyage will commence on Sunday the 29th of September running to Thursday 3rd October. The second voyage will start on Sunday the 12th of April going through to Thursday the 16th of April. The voyages commence at 8:45 a.m. and students their parents, Rotary mentors, corporate sponsors and friends will gather on the wharf at 8 a.m. for a little ceremony where students, corporate sponsors and Rotary club mentors will be recognised by the Rotary District Governor. The vessel will then sail down Gulf St Vincent into Investigator Strait and along some of the northern coast of Kangaroo Island. Weather permitting the vessel’s zodiacs will take the students ashore for a beach visit before the return trip to Port Adelaide. The vessel will probably take a somewhat different route returning to Port Adelaide on Thursday afternoon. (Exact departure and return locations will be confirmed closer to the time of the voyages as they are dependent on the Port River Expressway Bridge opening schedule)
All Rotary students will be allocated a Rotary club and a Rotarian to be their mentor. The Club mentor will meet and get to know their student and be at the wharf to see them depart on the Sunday morning and if possible greet them on their return on Thursday afternoon. Some students, beside their Rotary Club attachment will also be connected to a corporate Rotary sponsor, a business which sees the value a One & All Rotary training experience gives to the community, the individual students and their company.
On returning the student will be expected to make a 20 minute presentation about their experiences and what they gained from the voyage to their Rotary Club at one of the club’s meetings. If applicable this student may also be asked to give a similar presentation to their corporate sponsor.
