Content Item - ROADEC (Rochester Driver Education Complex)

The aim of this program is not to teach young drivers how to get their licence, but how to ensure they stay alive once they do. The program is designed to provide young drivers with the skills and techniques to ensure they are safe, responsible road users. It is run at a purpose built facility at Elmore Events Centre. The complex consists of classrooms and a purpose built road system that features all types of road surfaces, traffic lights, hills and a large sealed area.

Content Item - Computers 4 Community

This program liaises with business and organisations to facilitate donations of late-model superseded PC and IT equipment that are then re-furbished with licenced Microsoft Software and a tutorial installed. These are then provided to disadvantaged students and needy groups in communities.

How Clubs can assist:

  • Source computers, screens, keyboards and mice (computers need to be Pentium 4 and above with DVD reader)
  • Source worthy recipients, either individuals or organisations to receive the refurbished computers
  • Fund a $60 charge to cover license fees and refurbishment costs
  • Consider funding computer refurbishment cost and freight for overseas projects.

Program representatives: Rick Westcott (Melbourne), Joe Butler (Brimbank Central), Jack Watson (Brimbank Central) Peter Sutherland (North Balwyn)
