Annual Rotary Wheatbelt Swim for Reading 2022 & Community Challenge

Eighth Annual Rotary Wheatbelt Swim for Reading on 5 February 2022

The Rotary Wheatbelt Swim for Reading will be held at the Bruce Rock Aquatic Centre on Saturday 5 February 2022!  We’ll fundraise for reading programs at Bruce Rock and Narembeen District High Schools. Importantly, children will earn places on Rotary youth programs through their participation in the swim.

But, Wait, There’s More!  The Community Challenge for Reading is On!

Narembeen Shire President Kellie Mortimore and Bruce Rock Shire President Stephen Strange  challenge their communities to support school reading programs.   Stephen and Kellie are offering a $500 prize that will go to the school which receives the best support from their community through the Swim.  You can help your school win!

About the Swim Event

Our Swim is on at the Bruce Rock Aquatic Centre on Saturday 5 February 2022, commencing at 12.30pm. We’ve brought our swim forward in 2022, because we want to avoid clashes with seasonal swim competition events.

The Swim is a fun event that brings our Rotary team, schools and the community together, promoting a love of reading and fundraising for reading programs, as we enable future leaders to earn Rotary youth program places.

About Sponsorship for the Swim

This year we have again partnered with Rotary Australia World Community Service so that we can offer not only tax-deductible receipts, but also matched funding. That’s right, every dollar we raise together (up to $1700) becomes two!

Please encourage all sponsors to use the online donation form at

This is the easiest way to obtain a tax receipt and secure the matched funding. Donors who enter their details in the form can choose to pay by credit card, bank transfer or cheque. All the instructions are in the form. In the Request(s) to Project Manager box, please name the school and swimmer being sponsored. The online form is also great for encouraging family and friends anywhere to support local kids.
