The institution of Rotary is built upon the ideals of caring, honesty, dignity, respect, social justice, equal opportunity and co-operation and although these ideals were identified as being important in the early days of Rotary they are still very relevant to us today. They underpin how our members feel and think and are very evident in all that we do.

The Four Way Test

The Four-Way Test was created by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor in 1932 and has since been translated into more than 100 languages. It is applied by organizations and individuals throughout the world to ensure high ethical standards.

Of the things we think, say or do Rotarians should ask themselves …

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
