The District 9920 RYDA team Left to rt; George Wilson, Peter Wilcock, Lisa James, John Overall; Chairman

They were recognised by the National RYDA organisation as the leading District committee for New Zealand. All based on their level of effort, commitment and focus on spreading RYDA across the District

The Rotary Youth Driver Awareness programme (RYDA) was established in NZ about 12 years ago. The take up by Clubs varies by district but they are led by 9920. This year in our district there are 11 Colleges and approximately 2,000 students participating in the exercises.

Since its inception approximately 70,000 students in 97 Schools have attended.

Feedback by both Teachers and Students remains very positive.

Ongoing efforts by George Wilson, Peter Wilcock (both Papakura Club) and Lisa James (Somerville Club) make this programme  successful.
