Model United Nations Assembly
The Rotary Club of Kenthurst sponsored students from Hills Grammar School at MUNA this year. Model United Nations Assembly is a project organised and sponsored by Rotary Clubs to build international understanding and promote goodwill for world peace.
Christa, Alex, Anshita and Satvik presented their experience to our club members at a recent meeting. The students represented Jordan and India during the two-day event. It was evident that they valued the opportunity and enjoyed the event.
Our members remarked afterwards how wonderful it is to see such vibrant and enthusiastic members of the upcoming generation.
Congratulations to our newest Kenthurst Rotarian, Dawn Chang. Dawn is passionate about helping people and has no problem working on projects and getting her hands dirty. Welcome to our Rotary family.

Kenthurst Transitional Housing Project
After months of fundraising and hard work, an unused house has been transformed into housing for women over 55, giving them a chance to rebuild their lives and get back on track.
