The club supports local schools by arranging mock interviews and sponsoring the dux awards. It also organises a Young Musician of the Year award and in 2016 has invited P6 and P7 pupils to enter a Young Photographer competition
This year our main focus will be our highly succesful partnership with local schools. An enthusiastic group of club volunteers will work with our contacts at Lochgilphead Joint Campus and Tarbert Academy to offer practical interview experience to their students. We will also continue our suppoprt in sponsoring the award of Dux medals at the end of the academic year.
The Young Photographer Competition is a new and exciting competition promoted by Rotary Club of Mid Argyll, aimed at children in Primary 6 & 7. It is designed to support and encourage development of photographic skills. This competition aims to encourage young people to:
• Experiment with photography
• Use digital or traditional methods of photography
• Show interpretation of their chosen topic
• Express their ideas through the medium of photography
Although arrangements are still at a very early stage, the club is keen to maintain its involvement in presenting talented young musicians to the District Young Musician of the Year competition. Watch this space for updates!
