School’s char­ity project scoops ro­tary hon­ours

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

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’.
