A Rotakids Club is a properly formulated school club that works in partnership with its host Rotary Club (Borderland Rotary) to undertake an annual programme of events, fundraisers and to have FUN!
The Rotakids pledge says it all:
“As a Rotakid, I endeavour to be fair to all, serve my community and to show respect to others”.
To make a difference to: Our School, Our Community, Our World
Oswestry School filled and delivered 50 boxes to Hope Church, for distribution to children through the “Operation Christmas child” organisation. They are hoping to repeat this again next year. A big thank you to teacher Paul Bentley, who organised this with the students.
Not every idea planned works out, but these should : -
Rotakids Schools will be offered potted tree whips to look after and plant out next year as a community project.
In spring 2022, Borderland Rotary Environment team will take a party of Rotakids/school children, by train, to build a “Bug Hotel”/Hedgehog retreat, and prepare the ground for a tree planting excursion in autumn 2022.
2020/21 has been a difficult year for Rotakids, being unable to undertake projects, because of Covid.
St Martins Rotakids Club fundraised for "Guided reading books" in July 2020 for the school library.
Gobowen Primary School RotaKids Club held a fund-raising event for ‘Purple-4-Polio’ to help eradicate Polio worldwide. The whole school paid to wear purple for the day instead of school uniform.
