Check Rotary’s six Areas of Focus


Detailed description

We arranged for Rotary Peace Scholar Susan Carew, who promotes peace through clowning as Peacefull the Peace Clown, to come from Perth to teach peace to school children, community groups and Rotary Clubs. A one and a half week comprehensive program was developed in which she used her clowning skills to teach elements of peace in our local primary schools. She covered areas of violence, anti-bullying and anti-discrimination in a way that was fun, yet prompted the children to deeper and reflective thinking about the issues. The program extended beyond schools to community groups: the Hazara refugees at the Migrant Resource Centre where the emphasis was on building bridges between communities, and the local aged care hostel. Peacefull addressed 8 Rotary clubs. About 700 children and adults had face to face contact with her while another 5,000 plus were reached through a radio interview and newspaper articles. The project was very successful and excellent feedback was received from all.
