Year 5 pupils form the first ever RotaKids club in Stafford!

24th November 2016

Some of our current Year 5 pupils have formed the first ever RotaKids club in Stafford!

RotaKids is an exciting way for those aged 12 and under to engage in important, lively activities that will make a positive difference in our school,  our local community, and global communities. Through weekly meetings we learn important life skills such as: commitment, decision making, leadership, empathy, responsibility, integrity, justice and entrepreneurial skills.

We have already organised a successful fundraiser for our school, which was linked to World Book Day, and we are currently collecting donations to help an important charity in our local community – House of Bread.

RotaKids is sponsored by our local Rotary Club and on Friday 20th May 2016 we were presented with our Charter from them in a special assembly. Mr Winkle, President of the Stafford Rotary Club, presented us all with a certificate.

We were very proud.
