Proceeds from the Swim will go to Vital Wheatbelt Literacy Projects
The Swim proceeds will go to vital literacy development programs at Bruce Rock District High School, and earn matching literacy grants for Narembeen and Quairading District High Schools.
We have three important fundraising channels for the 2017 Swim.
Our Rotary Club Members are Leading the Way with Donations!
Our Rotary Club parks cars at the Perth Makers Market to raise funds for charitable and community projects across Western Australia and internationally. The members have decided to dedicate a portion of these funds to top up the generous contribution made to Bruce Rock Swim fundraising by our charity, The Rotary Foundation. These member-generated funds will flow to all three schools participating in the Swim.
Offline Fundraising is Underway!
You may have seen the swim posters and associated offline sponsorship forms being used by supporters of each participating school. These sponsorship forms are school-specific and funds raised via a particular form will go to the credit of the school named on that form.
In addition to these forms, we’re operating a dedicated account on Chuffed.org to give the Swim the best possible chance to connect with potential supporters anywhere in the world. Chuffed is a very convenient and quick way to contribute, with special digital “thank you” items to those who donate more than $10.
The great news so far is that our account on Chuffed.org has received donations of more than $300 in support of the Swim and associated literacy projects.

Our Rotary Bruce Rock Swim is less than a month away! We want to share news about an incentive scheme that we’re offering students at Bruce Rock, Narembeen & Quairading District High Schools, in order to encourage them to fund raise for and participate in the 2017 Swim, which will be held on 25 March 2017.
Incentive #1 – Rotary Community Service Certificates
We will award Rotary Community Certificates to those who fund raise and participate in the Swim. These certificates will confirm that the recipient has supported their community and one of the participating schools by fundraising and taking part in the Swim. Community certificates are useful in many ways, including work experience and job applications. The Rotary E-Club of Western Australia (“E-WA”) will be happy to confirm the contributions made to the 2017 Swim by certificate recipients.
Incentive #2 – Places on Rotary Personal Development & Leadership Programs for Young People Aged 14-17
The Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment (RYPEN) is a popular leadership and personal development program for young people aged 14-17. We will book a number of places on the RYPEN program for those students aged 14-17 who excel in their efforts on behalf of the 2017 Swim. RYPEN places are in demand because the program is enjoyable, challenging and helps participants achieve their potential.
We are delighted that three Wheatbelt schools will participate in the Swim at Bruce Rock Aquatic Centre on 25 March 2017. Quairading and Narembeen District High Schools have accepted our invitation to participate in the inaugural Wheatbelt Swim for Literacy (“Wheatbelt Swim”) to be held at the Bruce Rock Aquatic Centre on Saturday 25 March 2017.
The Wheatbelt Swim and our third annual Swim for Bruce Rock Kids will be held as one event (“Swim”), with registration starting at 4pm.
The Swim is a fundraising and community event for participating Wheatbelt schools. E-WA and our charity, The Rotary Foundation, will provide grants to Narembeen and Quairading. E-WA will continue to support Bruce Rock DHS by way of the successful Reading Rabbits and Reading for Life reading incentive programs, funds for which are raised via the annual Swim event.
The Swim is a non-competitive event held to encourage participation by students and the community. The primary fundraising for the event is by way of sponsorship of swimmers.
Registration for the Swim on 25 March will commence at 4pm, with swimming commencing at 4.30pm and the Swim will conclude by 7.30pm. Entry will be FREE.
