On Tuesday 10th October students and staff attended a Charter Night held by Southport Meols Rotary at the Hesketh Golf Club to officially launch the Stanley High School Interact Club.
Interact gives students ages 12-18 the chance to make a real difference while having fun. Every Interact Club carries out two service projects a year: one that helps their school or community and one that promotes international understanding.Clubs meet at least twice a month and are sponsored by their local Rotary club, in this case Southport Meols Rotary. Involvement in Interact is extremely rewarding for members and can mean that they connect with community leaders, develop leadership skills, make international connections and discover even more opportunities to connect with Rotary including Rotaract, RYLA and Youth Exchange.
Southport Meols Rotary have worked alongside Stanley High School Headteacher, Mr Moore and teacher Miss Donnelly and has successfully introduced 11 members already, with a potential to grow even more. The small club are extremely enthusiastic and have already been involved in a number of fundraising events so they’re off to a fantastic start and epitomise the Rotary ethos of #PeopleofAction.
During the Charter evening members of the Rotary Club, Stanley Interact and friends and family enjoyed a delicious meal. Southport Meols Rotary Club President, Mr Ged Whittle officially installed Year 9 student Georgia as Stanley Interact Club’s first President, adorning her with the ceremonial regalia.
