2021 Rotary Christmas Parade


It is with great disappointment that Te Awamutu Rotary in Partnership with Coresteel Buildings Waikato and with support from Waipa District Council and Te Awamutu Community Board have to announce that the much-loved Rotary Christmas Parade will not be able to go ahead this year for the first time in decades.

But kids and adults do not worry, nothing can spoil the spirit of Christmas and Santa will be here on time on Christmas Eve and making his way to your place.

Te Awamutu Rotary Christmas Competition


We can’t hold the traditional Santa parade this year, but we wanted to give everyone in Te Awamutu and surrounding rural areas the opportunity to transform their letterbox or sign or team in the theme of Christmas. 

Dress up your letterbox or business signage or your whole team in Christmas cheer. 

Demonstrate your Christmas spirit, take a photo and send it in. Let your imagination run wild! 

Its all about showing that Christmas tradition of Peace and Goodwill to all.

Then fill in the online entry form and upload a photo of your creation. It’s free to enter.

There is Three Categories

- Commercial / Businesses

- Service Clubs & Societies 

- Family                                

Spot prizes every week and 1st, 2nd and 3rd awarded 

Photos will be published for everyone to enjoy.

RYLA 2021 applications will be advertised early next year

Rotarys RYLA program is open to any young people in our district who have left secondary school. They can be tertiary students, farmers, teachers, electricians, and shop assistants … young people who show, through their actions, that they are emerging leaders.

RYLA is not a program to “sort out” wayward young people – it is to develop leadership skills and build support networks for focussed and enthusiastic young leaders.

TE AWAMUTU CANDIDATES WILL BE INTERVIEWED BY ROTARIANS FROM TE AWAMUTU ROTARY CLUB to determine their suitability for RYLA and that they are prepared to commit to this week-long, intensive development program.

RYLA offers the awardees an outstanding opportunity to grow as a leader in a week filled with challenge, new learning, teamwork and fun. The week long program has been professionally designed to cover the many aspects of leadership, and is based on a well-respected Leadership model. Leadership skills are developed through introducing new learning, meeting people who are living it, and giving it a go. There’s a mix of indoor and outdoor activities, some at the camp and others off site.

Next year’s program will be advertised early next year RYLA participants contribute $100.00 to Te Awamutu Rotary club and the club pays the total fee of $850.00 ($750 from the club and $100 from the Awardee)

This fee covers accommodation, food (including the formal dinner) facilitator fees where necessary, and all off site activities and buses for the week.

2021 Enrollment forms will be available upon request
