KINVER ROTARY CLUB WORKING EVEN CLOSER WITH LOCAL SCHOOLS

The Rotary Club of Kinver has been strengthening its links with local schools in Kinver and Wollaston.

During the run up to the end of term the club presented commemorative personalised dictionaries to every pupil leaving Brindley Heath, The Ridge and St James, Wollaston, primary schools – a total of 186. Cheques were also handed over to The Ridge and St James as contributions towards a visit to each school by the Life Education Caravan.

Also before the end of term President John Brown joined staff and pupils at Edgecliff School to present prizes and certificates to successful entrants in Rotary‘s District writing and photography competitions.

Foley Infants school in Kinver has already had a pledge of cash from the club - £150 – towards the refurbishment of a “boat-shaped shed” and during August the school will have a physical input when members will be assisting in the actual refurbishment work.

Rtn Alan Millichip, chair of Kinver Rotary Club’s Youth Opportunities initiative says: “We have always tried to maintain links with our local schools since the club was formed in 1985 but recently we have been able to identify more projects than ever in which we can bring the Rotary ethos into school life , and not just from a financial perspective.”
