Leo Straczek Renaud aged 11 years from Ysgol Meidrim, had a fantastic afternoon meeting one of his rugby idols Mike Phillips. Leo was particularly interested in Mike as he will be starting in Ysgol Dyffryn Taf in September, the same school that Mike attended. They also share another connection, Mike has recently married a French lady, and Leo’s Dad is French; from Clermont Ferrand, the home of ASM and where he met Jonathan Davies another local rugby player who has inspired Leo. Leo is a keen rugby player and has played for St Clears since the age of 6 years. Coming from a French and Welsh family Leo is able to speak 3 languages, Welsh, French and English. Leo hopes that all of these languages will help him in his pursuit to become a sports journalist when he is older.
Leo and all of his school mates were very excited to become part of the Rotary Family. Ysgol Meidrim were the second school to receive the charter for the Rota Kids club from Whitland and Narberth Rotary. This is particularly close to home as both Leo’s Mamgu and Tadcu are also Rotarians with Whitland and Narberth. The whole school is looking forward to getting involved and are hoping to be linked very soon with a school in Malawi.
