STUDENTS at South Bromsgrove High School have been developing their leadership skills and gaining a better understanding of the international world thanks to a link-up with town Rotarians, writes Sophie Nixon.
The Rotary Club of Bromsgrove has joined forces with the school to start an ‘Interact club’ for young people, aged between 12 and 18, who want to connect with their peers and have fun serving their communities whilst helping causes around the world.
The Interact Clubs organise two projects each year – one to help their school or community and one to promote international understanding.
The club was only formed earlier this year and members have already chosen two organisations to support, the Basement Project in Bromsgrove and a partner school abroad in Tanzania.
Last week, Rotarians visited the school to present the pupils with their Interact Club Charter.
Bromsgrove Rotary Club President Tony Docherty said: “It is immensely pleasing to witness young people volunteering to work for the benefit of others less fortunate than themselves.”
