The Rotary Club of Auckland Harbourside wishes to extend an invitation for all those interested to attend our club meeting to hear Sir Graham Lowe.
Where: Royal New Zealand Yacht Club 181 Westhaven Drive, Westhaven
When:  Wednesday 18th September 2019
Time:   6.30pm
The decorated former rugby league coach has been made a Knight Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to youth and education.
Lowie is now Sir Graham Lowe.  However, that does not mean he expects to be called Sir Graham.
"I don't mind [what people call me]. I respond to a whistle at times," he said.
Unusually Sir Graham has been lost for words, choking up when asked what it is like to now be a Knight Companion.
"I can't begin to explain to you how it sounds and feels," he said.
"I'm humbled, I'm proud, I'm grateful... it's just all of those things.
"I've got a lump in my throat. I can't compare it to anything."
Lowe thought he was hearing things when he got the call from the prime minister's office, asking him whether he'd accept the honour.
"I said yes to him about a hundred times in case he didn't hear it.
"There's never any question about accepting it.
"Just that one moment when I got that phone call it reminded me so much of what it's like when the final hooter goes at Wembley if you're winning the Challenge Cup.
"It was such a great feeling...[but] you know it's not going to last," Sir Graham said.
While renowned for coaching Manly and being the only non-Australian to coach a State of Origin team, Sir Graham has been honoured for services to youth and education.
He founded the charity The Lowie Foundation, which initially partnered with the New Zealand Institute of Sport, and now operates through The Lowie Foundation Ltd and Lowie Institute Ltd to deliver a programme for teenagers struggling with school or looking for a vocational pathway to employment.
"I always felt that the philosophy that I had towards coaching could help support the challenges, that particularly disadvantaged people have, when they were trying to get their heads around numeracy and literacy.
"I have these 12 basic principles, they were the principles I was applying while I was a coach, and I just knew in my heart those same values and principles would work anywhere.
"My passion is to those who are disadvantaged, because when I reflect on my career as a coach I owe so much to so many people, particularly some of the younger guys who could have quite easily gone down another path."
Sir Graham's coaching philosophy was inspired by New Zealand running icons Arthur Lydiard, Sir Murray Halberg, Sir Peter Snell and Bill Baillie, who used to run past his house in Mt Roskill, Auckland every Sunday morning when he was a child.
"I realised then that effort was required for whatever you were going to do."

Music has been an important part of leading an ordinary life for students at the Music School for Children With Disabilities in Honor of Paul Harris in Lublin, Poland. Founded by Rotary members, the school serves 20 students with various disabilities, including Down syndrome, autism, and visual impairments. The Rotary Club of Lublin-Centrum-Maria Curie-Sklodowska has provided funding with help from Rotary Foundation Matching Grants and the Henryk Wieniawski Musical Society, which houses the school.
After their son Mateusz was born with underdeveloped eyes, Mariusz and Joanna Kania looked for ways to help him be active. When he showed an aptitude for music, they looked for a teacher and were thrilled to find the Paul Harris music school.

For years, Angalia Bianca had slept in abandoned buildings throughout Chicago. She stole. She did drugs. She spent time in and out of jail for forgery, theft, trespassing, and possession of narcotics. But after she landed in prison for the seventh time, something changed -- Bianca knew she wanted a better life. She just didn’t know how to make it happen.
After serving her time, Bianca sought help from a local homeless organization, A Safe Haven, and moved to its shelter in the Rogers Park neighborhood. Bianca followed the program closely -- she attended all the required meetings, passed drug tests, and volunteered at every opportunity.

What is it like taking a large team to Africa?  It has probably been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. In mid February, I began leading Rotary members from all over the East Coast of the United States through Ghana. I’ve tried to give the team a warm Ghanaian welcome like I’ve received on my earlier trips. A large trip is a real blessing because each person sees Ghana and our work in a different way.

A highlight for the team was greeting the chief of Sagadugu. The team got excited about buying goats and food for children in the villages where I support eight churches. It was good to see the pastors of most of the eight churches, and I had to explain that we were just passing through on our way to Bolgatanga.

Throughout India and around the world, Rotary clubs are celebrating a major milestone: India has gone three years without a new case of polio. The last reported case was a two-year-old girl in West Bengal on 13 January 2011. To mark this historic triumph, Rotary clubs illuminated landmarks and iconic structures throughout the country with four simple but powerful words, "India is polio free."
The three-year achievement sets the stage for polio-free certification of the entire Southeast Asia region by the World Health Organization. The Indian government also plans to convene a polio summit in February to commemorate this victory in the global effort to eradicate polio.
