The show will be held in the auditorium on the first floor so if you need to use the lift to get to the first floor please ensure that you arrive in good time.

RI President 2017-18 Ian Riseley's message to all Rotarians



Rotary’s 2017-18 International President, Australia’s Ian Riseley, wants a trachoma-free Australia by 2021, Rotary’s 100th year in Australia. We are the world's only developed country with trachoma, an infectious eye disease that can be prevented with good hygiene practices. It is still present in remote Aboriginal communities and can lead to permanent blindness.

Razzamatazz 2018 NOW AT THE MASTER BUILDERS WOLLONGONG




Members of The Fairy Meadow Rotary Club would like to announce the names of the organisations who will be supported in 2018 with the proceeds from our next Razzamatazz shows to be held at  The Master Builders Church Street Wollongong. The show date is Thursday 19th April 2018 which is during school holidays. There will be three shows; at 10:30 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Sponsorship by local businesses provides tickets for the children to see the shows and the Festival also raises invaluable funds for local and overseas causes. 
 
Hundreds of local children will be thrilled by the antics of the performers at one of the three Razzamatazz shows put on by International Entertainers.

This fantastic, international variety show delights the children with magic, clowning, juggling, balancing, puppetry, acrobatics and exceptional comedy routines. 

Many of the audience have to deal with illness, physical disability, emotional trauma and/or severe financial difficulties on a daily basis so an outing like this really lifts their spirits and brings them well needed joy and laughter.

If your community group is not on our mailing list to receive tickets to one of the shows please apply to the secretary at secretary@fairymeadowrotary.org.au  

Proceeds this year will also benefit:



Fairy Meadow Demonstration School Sensory Garden Project. 

The school has been developing a sensory garden along the Princes Highway fence line over the past few years. Children with Autism or Sensory Processing Disorders find challenges with socialisation, communication, play and imagination. Sensory play playgrounds attract children and encourage exploration and discovery, and provide a "just-right" experience for those seeking sensory stimulation.

The Rotary Club of Fairy Meadow will be providing Astro-Turf for the next phase of the sensory Garden project and looks forward to being a long-term partner with the school and other sponsors.

Imagination Library for SCARF Illawarra.

Rotary Clubs in The Illawarra have been sponsoring many children in the 0 - 5 years age group with a free age-appropriate book each month for some years now. 

The Rotary Club of Fairy Meadow is expanding the reach and including children who have arrived as refugees in this country and are being supported by Strategic Community Assistance for Refugee Families (SCARF).

The Imagination Library project was started by Dolly Parton.

School of St Jude Tanzania.

 At 22 years old Gemma Sisia travelled to Uganda to volunteer as a teacher, where she taught girls science and sewing. This experience led to a fervent belief that a free, high-quality education should be the right of all children in the world and that education is the strongest weapon in the fight against poverty, corruption and political instability. 

Upon returning to her native Australia, Gemma fundraised to help underprivileged children in East Africa complete their schooling. She would raise enough money to start an official fund to invest in the education of East Africa’s poorest children. Along with the gift of a small plot of land in Arusha, Tanzania, Gemma began to build The School of St Jude with the help of friends, family and Rotary groups.

That was over a decade ago and The Rotary Club of Fairy Meadow, along with many others, continues to support the school financially and the school now provides free education to over 1,800 children a year.

Members of The Rotary Club of Fairy Meadow would like to thank all the local businesses who sponsor tickets for these shows and bring so much pleasure to so many children and their families as well as supporting other worthy local and overseas organisations.
