Youth Service/ Rotary Young Leader Award 2016
"One of the best experiences of my life."
Croydon Rotary Club members were pleased to welcome to their meeting on 12 July 2016 two students from the Thomas More Catholic School.
Two students,Maxine Alleyne-Pacheco and George Burlat attended the Rotary Young Leadership Award event held at High Ashurst, near Box Hill, in May sponsored by Croydon Club. Clearly the young people had gained a great deal from the experience and one of them said "One of the best experiences of my life" and the other "It was a great experience. I met new people who have become friends and I did lots of things I did not think I could do"
The students were accompanied by the Head of 6th Form Abdul Chowdry, who will be retiring shortly, his replacement Leanne Yost and a Foundation Governor Elizabeth Budiar.
At the same meeting, we were delighted to welcome Rotarien Mildred Tettey who was visiting us the Rotary Club of Accra Spintex.
