They were invited to speak to Mrs Scott, Primary 6/7 teacher who was keen to receive information on Rotakids.

Pupils from Primary 4 to 7 are actively involved with Rotakids, planning Community events and becoming involved the End Polio Now campaign and filling Shoe Boxes.
The first project undertaken by Knockando Rotakids was to plan and undertake a Litter pick within the local community. They contacted the Community Warden and with his assistance and the assistance of Elgin Rotary Club members carried out a Litter pick around the public park in Archiestown. Five bags of rubbish were filled. The litter pick was followed up by a poster campaign, the posters designed by the Rotakids, asking the community not to drop litter.
The Rotakids are taking delivery of Crocus Bulbs which they are going to plant into pots and sell at the Christmas sale. All proceeds going to the End Polio Now Campaign.
