Portishead Rotary Club is committed to the development of our local youth, and have a number of projects and ongoing activities to support this.
In conjunction with the other Rotary clubs in our District and also nationally, we organise a number of public competitions aimed at improving the skills of our youth. These competitions are organised both at District and National level giving a significant platform and experience for our young to showcase their talents. We are working with both Gordano & St Katherines schools locally to promote these competions and provide opportunities to their pupils.
Rotakids is a a great way for youngsters aged between 7 and 12 years old to get together and enjoy working on a fun project. We have set up Rotakids groups within Portishead Primary and Trinity schools, and are planning to extend this to other schools in the Portishead area.
