Rotary Maleny empowers individuals to create positive change in themselves through personal development, networking opportunities, contributing to their local community, and enjoying activities.


RYDA happened again this year for our Maleny State High School Students in Year 10. These young people will soon be obtaining their Learners Permits so it’s vital to educate them on road safety and how to speak up if they’re a passenger in a car.

RYDA provides students with the tools, habits and motivation to take action and stay safe on our roads as both drivers and passengers throughout their lives.

RYDA features a highly engaging and memorable one-day workshop that front-loads students’ understanding of road safety. The workshop sessions are designed to be held in small classroom-sized groups (approximately 25 students) and are led by a team of trained facilitators including Police, driving instructors and other community sector specialists.

This is now a yearly event on the calendar and the day is spent at Corbould Park in Caloundra. 4 members from our Rotary Club were there to assist as group leaders on the day and even we learned some interesting facts. It goes to prove you can always learn something!
