My Experience at the Rotary National Science and Technology Forum

My name is Holly Goble and I am currently a Year 13 student at Southland Girls’ High School. At school I am one of a group of 11 amazing prefects and this role is one that I have taken on wholeheartedly.

My academics are an area in which I pride myself, which is why I am coming to share my experiences at the latest Rotary National Science and Technology Forum.

Outside of school I am a member of the Waihopai Rowing Club. This sport has been a part of my life for the last 4 years, and even with the 8 trainings a week, it remains as my passion

‘Good Guise’ – Roger & Julie Guise

In 2014 we converted our farm to dairy as part of our farm succession plan. Struggling with the impact of the slump in dairy prices, we looked at what was in our hand and how we could add value to it.

An Indian immigrant family approached us to source milk to manufacture paneer as it was unavailable in New Zealand.

That this product was unavailable in New Zealand seemed implausible to us but after 6 months of research we agreed; everything we could find was either frozen imported Indian product or a milk powder substitute.

This is a fascinating story which Roger and Julie will explain in more detail at our Rotary meeting on 7 May.
