Vocational Projects


Kimberley Planning Underway     

Many people, and particularly Rotary Clubs throughout Western Australia, are familiar with RC Karrinyup's major 40th anniversay project, the Earbus, which was designed to work in the Kimberley region of our state. The purpose built vehicle was completed and handed over to the Earbus Foundation in April. Up till now it has been hard at work in the Goldfields and other areas but plans are now underway for service in the Kimberley Region, for which it was designed.


Earbus Handover & Launch     

Members of RC Karrinyup turned out in force for the handover and launch of WA’s first community-funded mobile ear clinic at the Stirling Farmers’ Market. The completed Earbus is the realization of a dream for Professor Harvey Coates AO, Clinical Patron, Earbus Foundation of WA, who three years ago envisaged a mobile 'go anywhere' clinic, capable of travelling to remote areas of the northwest of Western Australia. Thanks to the passionate 'fund, design and build' campaign of the RC Karrinyup, this dream has now become a reality. 


A Vision Realized     

Over three years ago, Professor Harvey Coates AO, Clinical Patron, Earbus Foundation of WA, envisaged a mobile 'go anywhere' clinic capable of travelling to remote areas of the northwest of Western Australia. For patients unable to travel to a town clinic, it was necessary to take the clinic to them in the battle against the exceedingly high incidence of ear disease among the population of that area. Professor Coates is thrilled that, thanks to the efforts of the RC Karrinyup, this vision has now become a reality.    


Kimberley Earbus     

Our major undertaking in Vocational Service involves working with the Earbus Foundation WA to design and purchase a suitable vehicle, which will be fit for purpose to operate throughout the Kimberley Region of Western Australia. It will undertake ear diagnostic tests to improve the health of Aboriginal Communities, particularly young children, who are most at risk. 


Nurse of the Year Award     

The Rotary Club of Karrinyup Nurse of the Year Award was created some 26 years ago to honour outstanding nurses working at the Osborne Park Hospital.  This annual perpetual Award recognises a nurse (or midwife) whose daily dedication and care epitomises the highest standard of quality and personal commitment.
