Morton Music Awards

Each year The Rotary Club of Belmont presents the Morton Family Music Award to a talented and deserving musician or singer attending high school or primary school in the East Lake Macquarie region. The monetary award is provided to assist in the payment of fees and costs in relation to their music tuition and development.

Musicians, parents or teachers can contact the club for further details and how to apply. Applicants are auditioned by a panel consisting of club members and musicians before awards are made. A Morton Music Awards night is conducted annually by the club.

Model of the United Nations

Year 10 students are provided with the opportunity to experience how the United Nations works.

Rotary Model United Nations Assembly or MUNA is all about building bridges of goodwill for world peace and understanding in the minds of our youth.
MUNA challenges our youth to respect and tolerate differences of race, religion and nationalism whilst retaining their own individualism and the best of their national traditions. MUNA as a concept arose in North America from the desire of young people to simulate the great debates of the United Nations Assembly.
The Club is willing to consider some level of sponsorship for local school students.
