Last Weeks Speaker-Marika Mulqueen

Last week we had the pleasure of listening to Marika Mulqueen speak at our meeting.

Marika was thoroughly interesting dynamic and inspiring. Markita spoke on how in 2009  she attempted to ride the entire Tour De France route. On average Markita said she rode 200km a day through extreme heat, snow, rain and strong wind. How she endured falls, punctures, dehydration, hunger, being completely and utterly lost and run-ins with the police.

We would like to thank Markita very much for her time and presentation.

Lifesaving Victoria Headquarters

Cnr. Todd Road & The Boulevard, Port Melbourne

May is Australian Rotary Health Research Month

     Australian Rotary Health                                     


Rotary Bowelscan - A Community Awareness Project

A brief introductory description for those who might be interested in conducting this program.
The Bowelscan program is an initiative of the National Bowelscan Committee Incorporated and the Rotary District Committees and is run by those organisations.

Scan Kits are available from purchase for the District Committees.
Australian Rotary Health - Supporting healthier minds, bodies and communities through research, awareness and education.
Asylum Seeker Employment Project - Profiles

The Rotary Club of Albert Park

together with members from 

Brigidine Asylum Seekers Project 

are working together on the

Asylum Seeker Employment Project.   

The first  challenge facing new arrivals in Australia is to find a job.  Another big challenge is to become known in the local community.  These two challenges are connected. It is said that 80% of job vacancies are never advertised and that many jobs are filled through word of mouth or through networking. Networking is talking to people you know about jobs.

New arrivals in Australia don't have any networks, which are so important, especially in getting their first job. This is especially in the case of Asylum Seekers because their families, friends and people they worked with in the past are not in Australia.

In order to help them become better known locally the RCAP has offered to assist asylum seekers associated the  Brigidine Asylum Seekers Project by placing profiles of individual asylum seekers on their web site for their members. It is hoped that some of these members may be able to assist some of you with your job search or perhaps with work experience opportunities in Australian workplaces.

Note: Below profiles may take a little longer than normal to open. 

Country Sri Lanka, seeking career in Sign Writing or Painting


Country Chad, Seeking Career in Legal and Community Development.

Country The Democratic Republic of Congo, seeking career as School Teacher


Country Cameroon in West Africa, seeking career in Laboratory



Country Pakistan, seeking career in the Health Field and in particular in Aged Care


Country Sri Lanka, seeking career in the Computer Field, Customer Service or Food Service

Who Are Aslyum Seekers.  Countries which they have fled.

Book Store Roster

As you are already aware, the Club has been given the opportunity to use The (old) GalileeSchool building at the Parish of Sts Peter & Paul, Cnr Dorcas & Montague Streets, South Melbourne, for our second hand books.

We require 2 people each Saturday and I have split the shifts into 2 hours, if you are able to do the full 4 hours, please place your name in both time slots. Jenny Grebler will be on hand each week and she has a wealth of information about the books. Jenny will need 1 person in the morning and 1 person in the afternoon to help her out.

No prior knowledge of the books is necessary, ALL books will be priced and you will just be required to take money for the sales and help people where needed.

Please respond to Deb Renshaw-Jones  MB: 0438 250 908 and let her know what shifts you are able to do for the remainder of May and June.
