Dictionaries were again presented to Year 6 pupils of Dame Dorothy Street, Seaburn Dene and Redby Primary schools at leaving events held in each school.

President Brian, accompanied by other Rotarians, visited Dame Dorothy Street Primary School on the afternoon of Thursday 21st July and distributed dictionaries after seeing pupils perform a play that they had written about their time at school.

In the evening, they were invited to Seaburn Dene Primary to watch the Year 6 pupils give a Fashion Show before receiving their dictionaries.

On the morning of Friday 11nd July, Redby Primary School was the scene of further award presentations to the pupils as well as the dictionaries.  District Governor Tony was also pleased to present the Chairman of the Governors of the school with a Rotary Recognition Award for his service in that capacity over 25 years.
