Vocational service aims to enhance the skills of individuals and businesses within local and international communities.
Rotarians are classified in their clubs on the basis of their vocations.
Once or twice per year we arrange vocational visits to companies or organizations to expand our members knowledge about business and community activities.

Pride of Workmanship Award
Held in Oct each year, the Pride of Workmanship Award was launched as a Rotary project at the District 9680 Assembly in June 1975 and later adopted by our club. The aim was to encourage pride in personal performance in the workplace, and to help create a national attitude for the benefit of our country.
The award is designed to recognize an individual employee nominated by his or her employer for demonstrating responsibility to do a job well. Having such employees is one of the greatest intangible assets in our community.
Each year the club presents the Citizenship Award at the Healesville High School Awards Night. The Award, of a gold Citizen watch, is presented to the student who contributes the most to a wide range of school and community activities.
