It has been quite a high profile week for RC Stanthorpe in the community, particularly engaging and encouraging excellence among our youth. Below are several stories on various ways that we have been active in the community. 
The youth focus continues this Monday night with our French Student, Marie, as our guest speaker. Julie Beddow is taking a couple of weeks off so please RSVP to John Vichie should you be bringing along a guest.
Jim Barnes has been a very busy lad lately, organising the JCA awards at St Josephs last week and also arranging some upcoming Mental Health First Aid Workshops early in the new year. More on this below...
Many thanks to Morwenna for this and last week's bulletins.They didn't want to keep me in China so I'm back on deck again for any stories you may have for fellow members.
Rotary Sponsored Youth Awards
Stanthorpe Rotary sponsors several secondary awards each year at both SSHS and St Josephs.
The worthy recipients of the Rotary Senior Award for Outstanding Service and the Rotary Junior Service Award for 2018 at Stanthorpe State High School are Tenille Abraham and Alicia Paech.
And the winner of the Junior Craft Award from St Joseph's, with his wooden blanket box (or glory box as Bill called it), Franco Pozebon. Runner up, Lachlan Mahoney. Thank you to Stanthorpe Rural and Stanthorpe Mitre 10 for their sponsorship of the prizes for these awards.
Aldi Sizzle
The Royal blue and gold were very visible at the reopening of the Aldi store last week. Not only was this a successful fundraiser but the members all enjoyed the fellowship created while turning snags or slicing onions and chatting with the many locals who visited. Thankyou to Store Manager, Peter Aldridge for offering us this great community service.
Interact Farewells Josh
Interact President Tessa gave a farewell presentation to Senior Mentor Josh Clark this week. Josh has been in the struggling Interact Club since Year 8. He was very happy to have seen it Re-invigorated this year. He encouraged all members to bring a friend at the start of next year. Tessa thanked Josh for his enthusiasm and wished him well now that he has graduated. Josh intends to stay connected to Rotary. 
Mental Health First Aid Workshops
Stanthorpe Rotary is proud to offer the community this 12-hour Mental Health First Aid course. The course teaches adults (18 years and over) how to provide initial support to adults who are developing a mental illness, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Like physical first aid, mental health first aid is given until the person receives professional help or until the crisis resolves.

Course participants learn about the signs and symptoms of the common and disabling mental health problems, how to provide initial help, where and how to get professional help, what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective, and how to provide first aid in a crisis situation.

Please note this course is not a therapy or support group, rather it is an education course to learn how to give first aid to others.
Talkwise offers this MHFA Course as authored by MHFA Australia and delivered by accredited instructor Sallyanne Keevers
