The Rotary Club of The Hills-Kellyville

The Rotary Club of The Hills-Kellyville  is an active and enthusiastic Club which was formed from the amalgamation of the Rotary Clubs of Baulkham Hills, Kellyville (2009) and Winston Hills (2015).

Our Club is involved in many activities at both a local and international level covering aspects such as community service, international service, vocational service and youth. 

 Some of our current and recent projects are The Sydney Hills Garden Competition, Jazz at the Pines , Christmas Tree Sales, Writing Competition for local schools, Australia Day ceremony,  sponsorship of the Bourke Public School breakfast programme,  a hands on project in Vanuatu building a classroom, Youth Exchange students, Rotary Youth Leadership, numerous partnership projects in India and Sri Lanka and supporting local causes such as North West Disability Services and the Children’s Hospital at Westmead.

Of course while our projects do provide good fellowship as well as good service we also also like to have fun and fellowship at our social events.

  If you would like to give something back to the community and enjoy fellowship and fun with like minded individuals you are always welcome at one of our meetings.

 The night was well received by all and the attendance of our dignitaries certainly made the Awardees feel valued and special.

It was a great opportunity for employee/employer relationships, pride in achievement, recognition of service and a great showcase for our Rotary Club and Rotary in general,

Research Grant for FoxG1 Foundation

Fox G1 is a rare genetic disorder affecting children in which one critical gene (FoxG1) does not develop properly and has a mutation. As this gene affects brain development it causes significant problems for the children affected such as not being able to walk, talk or sit up. The aim of the research is to find out if this condition can be corrected using  some of the newer gene editing techniques.

 FOXG1 Scholarship - Our club is sponsoring a research scholarship to find a cure for FOXG1 through an Australian Rotary Health PhD scholarship in partnership with International FOXG1 Foundation.
