High Mill & St Athanasius Primary Schools RotaKids

It is never too early to start making a difference in the community, and RotaKids gives those aged 7-12 the chance to do just that.

Having fun and making a difference.

What is RotaKids?

RotaKids is a fun and exciting way for children aged 7-12 to make friends and get involved with important activities in the community, all while having a great time in the process.

RotaKids clubs are based in schools, youth groups or community centres and with the help and support from teachers, youth leaders and the local Rotary club, children can gain a valuable experience in helping others and learning interesting, new things.

It also brings an exciting and practical approach to supporting the citizenship element of the national curriculum.

By doing so, children enjoy a boost to their confidence and self-esteem at a key age and develop and understanding of how their actions can impact on others.

Both RotaKids and Interact support the #iwill campaign to create genuine opportunities for young people to generate social change.


What do RotaKids clubs do?

The great thing about RotaKids is that children can come up with ideas and see them become a reality.

The groups can do just about anything which springs to mind to help others.

It shows children that by working together, there is so much you can achieve. Examples of RotaKids activities include:

  • Filling shoeboxes with toys for underprivileged children around the world as part of the Rotary Shoebox Scheme
  • Raising money for charities in your area with a sponsored bike ride, non-uniform day, cake sale or school fun days
  • Supporting the environment by setting a nature project in the school playground or local community
  • Collecting books for children in countries around the world

Head Teacher Marion Girdwood and children from High Mill Primary School gave an excellent talk on the benefits of being part of RotaKids to an audiance of Rotarians at Growing Rotary Day in Carluke Lifestyles Centre. Well done to the members of RotaKids from High Mill Primary for a truly inspiring talk.

Our other RotaKids group is in St Athanasius Primary School and eagerly supported by head teacher Mr Frank Farrell
