Vocational Training Team (VTT) visit
The Rotary Club of Elizabeth hosted the visiting VTT (Vocational Training Team) from the Philippines. The five members (Czar, Mimi, Ron, Veron, Devie) are all involved in the field of Education and with their Rotarian team leader (Bobbie), are visiting educational establishments in the area.
The Vocational Training team is a Rotary Project, a unique opportunity to develop leadership skills, work on team building, and increase self confidence. The programs are designed to have an invaluable impact on the career of a young professional in the global workplace by creating network opportunities and lifelong friendships. Individuals who participate in this rewarding, once-in-a-lifetime experience will broaden their cultural perspective. In exchange, our district sent a team of young professional educators to the Philippines.

|As it was easter and the schools were closed visits were arranged to some areas that the visitors might not have experienced. A visit to SA Mushrooms delighted the guests who delighted in tasting the fresh product.
|Farm machinery dwarfed the visitors who were surprised at their size. Malcolm Wilson demonstrated to the guests how a modern Australian farm works.
|A visit to an Olive grove completed the tour. Each member was presented with a bottle of Trevi Extra-virgin Olive Oil by proprietor Robyn Trevilyen.
