Many would have seen the North Shore skyline light up with the Northbridge Rotary Club’s annual community fireworks on the evening of 7 May.  And what a spectacular afternoon and evening of fun, food and entertainment it was. 
 
Well done to all those involved. 
 
The event, attended by some 4,000 people, raised close to $50,000 which the Northbridge Rotary Club will use to support a range of worthy charities and causes. 
 
Our special thanks to Willoughby  City Council and to Northbridge Plaza for what is now our 30th year of joint partnership with them for this event. Northbridge Rotary Club President, John Gidney, is photographed presenting a plaque to the Plaza management commemorating this achievement.

Year 2 students were very thankful for the donation of winter jackets and school readers
A ROTARY Club partnership has delivered a special gift to the students of Telegraph Point Public School.
 
A donation worth more than $9,000 will keep the 130 students warm this winter while also replenishing the book shelves.
 
The generous offer is more welcome news for the school community with every family impacted in some way by the devastating March floods.
 
Wauchope Rotarian Diana Reynolds reached out to the Northbridge Rotary Club in Sydney to make the donation possible. Northbridge Rotary Club raised funds from their local community.
 
Northbridge Rotarians Eleanor Chevor, Kevin Tattrie and Peter Russell delivered the new winter jackets and readers at a special presentation on Tuesday, June 8.
 
Principal Duncan Adams said the community generosity shown towards Telegraph Point School has been overwhelming and reaffirms the human spirit is alive and well.
 
The school's prime minister Leeara Elford and deputy prime minister Shaylee Wilcox thanked Rotary on behalf of the students.
 
 
 
 "It has been really refreshing for the children to be back on site," Mr Adams said.
 
The entire school was relocated to Hastings Secondary College's Westport campus after the floods while six new demountable buildings were installed at the school site.
 
"To have the consistency of school every day is very meaningful in their lives when many of them have lost everything in the floods.
 
"We have a lot of families who have lost everything, and many who are still displaced."
 
The tender process for the school's rebuild has closed with construction to commence later this year.
