Yandelora School - Cortical Vision Impairment

Guest speaker at our Club on 3rd June was Ana Levar, a Vision Support Teacher for the Department of Education. Ana works at Yandelora School to support the teachers to meet the needs of students with significant vision impairment and intellectual disability. At Yandelora School Ana’s role is to build the capacity of staff to meet students’ needs in all of their aspects of school life. 

Ana has a special interest in a particular type of vision impairment called CVI, or Cortical Vision Impairment. This is a complex and poorly understood form of vision impairment, however is also the most common cause of vision impairment. 

Camden Rotary Club supported, through a Rotary District Grant and Club donations, the purchase of some amazing and unique teaching aids for students with CVI at Yandelora which Ana showed to Club members. Our Club members are pleased and proud to be able to make a difference in the lives and education of young people at Yandelora School.

In celebration of Australia Day, Rotary Clubs from Greater Sydney to the Illawarra have handed out 20,000 lamingtons and coffee vouchers to frontline emergency services workers to thank them for supporting our community.
All lamingtons were purchased from local bakeries, coffee vouchers from local cafes, and printing and other stationery all done through local businesses.
The Australia Day Council provided $8 million in grants to local government and community organisations to help make sure Australia Day events could go ahead in a COVID safe way.
Macarthur Rotary Clubs delivered lamingtons & coffee vouchers to local hospitals, police, fire stations and other emergency workers.
