Knockando Rotakids

Knockando Rotakids Certificate Presentation with President Andy Jamieson

The Rotakids at Knockando Primary School started after a visit from PP Sandy Ritchie and President  Andy Jamieson. They were invited to speak to Mrs Scott, Primary 6/7 teacher who was keen to receive information on Rotakids.  After the meeting Mrs Scott decided to proceed with in introduction of Rotakids at Knockando.

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.

A number of other activities are being planned over the coming years, all of which will be supported by the local community, Knockando Staff and Elgin Rotary Club members.
