There are two Rotakids Clubs attached to Shipston Rotary, Tysoe Church of England Primary School and Ettington Church of England Primary School.
Years 5 and 6 are eligible to join and after saying the 'Rotakids pledge' they are issued with their special Rotakids badges and become members.
Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer are voted in and they run the Club under the supervision of a Shipston Rotarian and with the assistance of a nominated Staff member.
This year the Rotakids decided to raise money for Guide Dogs for the Blind.
The blind penalty shoot out sounds a bit strange but it is recommended on the guide dogs website! A great success anyway. Then a dress down day and lastly a toy sale. Another great year, well done.
Tysoe CE Primary School Rotakids has been running for 3 years now and we have been involved with raising funds for various Charities chosen by the children including the RNIB, WaterAid,Starlight,the British Red Cross, the Dogs' Trust.
Some of these took the form of collections of recycling material e.g.We raised over £400 for Water Aid from the collection of old mobile phones and recently we had a Football Competition to raise funds but also for the experience of working together, encouraging positive team spirit and developing leadership skills.
