Ro­tary Round-up

Midweek Visiter - - Rotary Round-up -

FORMBY Ro­tary Club re­cently held a pre­sen­ta­tion evening for their RYLA can­di­date Joe Mitchell.

He came to the club to talk about his ex­pe­ri­ence of the Ro­tary Young Lead­er­ship Award.

The Ro­tary Club had spon­sored Joe to take part in the course which took place in the sum­mer at Arthog Ac­tiv­ity Cen­tre in Wales.

The award aims to build con­fi­dence, com­mu­ni­ca­tion, team build­ing and lead­er­ship skills.

Joe was in­ter­viewed with a num­ber of other candidates from Formby High School.

The course com­prises a mix­ture of Duke of Ed­in­burgh award, Out­ward Bound and the Kryp­ton Fac­tor and aims to take the par­tic­i­pants com­pletely out of their com­fort zone.

It was ev­i­dent from Joe’s ex­cel­lent pre­sen­ta­tion that he had thor­oughly en­joyed the ex­pe­ri­ence and gained a tremen­dous amount, not to men­tion the new friend­ships that had been forged over the five days of the chal­lenge.

Joe joined the Ro­tary Club with his mum An­drea and Formby High’s head of sixth form Mark O’Shaunessey for a meal be­fore giv­ing his pre­sen­ta­tion.

The Ro­tary Club would like to give thanks to Joe’s par­ents, and to Mark, for their sup­port of Joe’s ef­forts.

Thanks also go to Formby High School for their con­tin­ued sup­port of this ini­tia­tive.
