RYLA Students visit the Club
On Thursday 2nd November, the Rotary Club of South Queensferry held a fellowship meeting in the Hawes Inn. Following the meal, members were addressed by four Rotary Young Leaders' Awards participants who had been sponsored by the club to attend a week-long programme of outdoor activity, physical and mental challenges and team-building exercises in the Perthshire hills. Kathryn Hope, Fiona Stoddart, Cameron McArthur and Ssarien Liddell, all students at Queensferry High School, gave a short, often amusing presentation outlining their varied experiences and how they reacted to the sometimes surprising tasks they had to complete. Each student brought home individual memories, but all agreed that the course had broadened their horizons and faced them with tasks that could only be solved by co-operation and teamwork which would stand them in good stead during future studies and careers.
The quote of the evening which sums up RYLA and their experiences has to be
"It helps you become the person you could be."
