School’s charity project scoops rotary honours
NORTHWOOD School’s Interact Club has triumphed in a recent Rotary Club competition winning the first prize of £250.
The Potter Street school’s entry related to a project which the students had organised and raised funds for three charities – Shooting Star CHASE, St Mungo’s and Children in Need by holding a Christmas fair last term.
The competition, at the recent annual Rotary District Conference, held at Savill Court, Englefield Green, required entrants to demonstrate how their project was planned and implemented, as well as the outcome. The pupils had to show what they had learnt from the exercise and had to include a final evaluation.
The fair organised by the students, which was held in mid-December, was very successful and the three charities received cheques for a little over £300 each.
The Interact Club are now proposing to raise funds to donate to a multiple sclerosis charity and will use their prize money for this purpose.
The District Interact Competition, sponsored by Elthorne-Hillingdon Rotary Club, covers 60 Rotary Clubs in parts of Middlesex, the Thames Valley and beyond.
Rotary membership worldwide has a membership of approximately 1.2 million and the Interact Clubs involving 12-18 year old students are part of the Rotary ‘family’.
