Youth Activities Committee -

Chairman Brian Whittaker

“We   seek   to   encourage   our   young   students   to   meet   fresh   challenges   and   to   perform at their very best” Come   mid-November   2019   we   will   promote   our   23rd   Youth   Speaks    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   2020   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.      We   are   aiming   to   introduce   Junior   Technology   Events   this   year,   this   is   for   pupils   age   8   to   11   years old. Discussion with the local schools to begin soonest. This   Rotary   year   we   have   the   challenge   of   organising   Youth   Makes   Music .      As   always   it   take   a   lot   of   planning   and   coordination   with   the Schools   and   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.   I   would   hope   that   Rotarians   will   make   the   journey   To Saffron Walden to support the concert. Kids   Out    is   a   day   out   for   disadvantaged   children   to   meet   up   at   at   Wimpole   Estate.   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   Royston   Arts   festival   as   part   of   the   Young   Royston   Art   Society programme. It   is   hoped   we   can   select   a   suitable   Candidate   for   the   Rotary   Youth   Leadership   Award   (RYLA)   during   this   coming   Rotary   year.   District 1260   offer   a   3   day   leadership   course   at   Amersham   Woodrow   High   House.   If   any   club   member      knows   of   any   18-30   year   old   who   would      be benefit of such a course please let the Youth committee be aware. An exciting year in prospect!   If you would like to know more about our youth activities pleas contact us here.
