Fisher & Paykel Vocational Visit

A good turnout of Rotarians from local clubs, together with some partners and children, met at the Fisher and Paykel Healthcare premises first for an introduction to the generous programme initiated by Michael Meredith to provide lunches for needy children in Auckland schools.  By enjoying a sample of his lunches – a very healthy salmon, potato and salad mix with light dessert – attendees contributed approximately 80 servings into local schools.  A win-win for all.

Hosting a Rotary Exchange Student

In a few months Pakuranga Rotary is hosting another Exchange Student - Viktoria Melber from Austria.

We need more host families to make Viktoria's year successful.

Host families come in all shapes and sizes. They can be Rotarians or non-Rotarians, and may include young children, older children, grand children or no children at all.

Hosting a student brings the world to your place - you meet someone from another country, share their culture, their language, and their perspective of the world. At the same time they will learn about you and life in New Zealand which makes if a fun and enjoyable two-way experience.

Can you help with hosting or do you know someone that may be interested?
If yes, then please phone me on 0272046471 or email
