May 2023

BusyFeet groups from across Melbourne performed at the Rotary International Convention in May.  They made a huge impact on the audience and were applauded for their participation.


Brighton North Rotary has been a long-term facilitator and sponsor of BusyFeet Bayside, a weekly dance and movement activity for children with special needs aged 6 to 16.  

BusyFeet is conducted in a fun, safe environment at the Castlefield Community Centre, Hampton during school terms.   

In 2018 Brighton North Rotary were successful in an application for a Bayside City Council ‘Inclusive Bayside Partnership Program’ Grant of $2630 for the running of BusyFeet. These funds covered the Castlefield Community Centre rent, teachers travel allowance, promotion, and purchase of equipment.  In 2019 we received a grant of $5000 from Freemasons Victoria which enables BusyFeet to continue for another two years to June 2021.  The grant was presented to Brighton North Rotary BusyFeet Bayside's coordinator, Lyn Mortimer, by former member and Freemason Garry Bradd.

In 2022 Bendigo Community Bank Caulfield Park became our most recent sponsor.
