“We seek to encourage our young students to meet fresh challenges and to perform at their very best”Come mid-November we will promote our ‘Youth Speaks’ events featuring 8 First Schools and 2 middle Schools from Royston and nearby villages who seek to express themselves on a chosen subject to their parents and their teachers and Rotarians. It is their opportunity to present their ideas and experiences, an important feature of everyday life. The first Wednesday in February sees 96 students from the 6 Middle Schools and 2 Upper Schools assemble for the Technology Tournament. It’s a chance for team building and improving communication skills and encouraging young people to see Design and Technology as attractive and challenging.This year we have the challenge of organising Youth Makes Music as always it take a lot of planning and coordination with the Schools. We will once again showcase the depth of Royston’s musical talent. The concert covers a whole range of musical talent presented by 200 pupils and students from our First, Middle and Upper Schools. This year, for the first time, it will be staged at the superb Saffron Hall, in Saffron Walden. We would hope that this year Rotarians will make the journey To Saffron Walden to support the concert because in previous years there hasn’t been enough room..“Kids Out” is a day out for disadvantaged children at Wimpole Hall. These youngsters visit the rare breed farm animals, ride the mini railway, bounce on the castle, fly their kites, laugh at the puppets, have their face painted and picnic. We expect about 150 youngsters from Cambridge, Baldock and Haverhill enjoy a day of fun.We are sponsoring the “Rotary Club Art Inspiration Award” at this year’s Arts festival as part of the Young Royston Art Society programme.We are looking forward to interacting with other clubs in our new district 1260 gaining new ideas and possible collaborations. An exciting year in prospect!If you would like to know more about our youth activities pleas contact us here.
