4 September Meeting

  • Alyah-Rose Narbey-Nimeti is a young woman who is going places. As well as being deputy head girl at Northland College, Alyah is also a member of the Far North Youth Council, while next month she will represent her country at an international youth conference held in Rarotonga.

  • This week Alyah was a guest of Kaikohe Rotary as she told us of her experience aboard the sailing ship R Tucker Thompson. Alyah joined 11 other young people and four crew for a week-long voyage. She told us she shared in all tasks onboard ship including the scrubbing the deck, peeling potatoes and climbing the mast. Every morning the young people were expected to swim around the vessel at sunrise. While the swim was not compulsory, you could not have a shower unless you got into the water. And it was cold!

  • Aliyah said the trip reminded her how vulnerable our environment is to the effects of climate change and how we have to work hard now to preserve the Earth for future generations. She has no hesitation in recommending the R Tucker Thompson experience to her schoolmates.

  • Kaikohe Rotary is proud to sponsor talented local teens like Alyah to enjoy the T Tucker Thompson experience.
