New InterAct Club Launched at Ellesmere

A new generation of Rotarians have joined the Club of Ellesmere movement after a new club was launched. The Interact Club formed of pupils aged between 12 and 18, was officially recognised by the Rotary Club, when District Governor Lynne Marshall presented the new committee with a certificate.

Interact is a Rotary Club-sponsored organisation of young people, whose passion for community service aligns them with the ideals of Rotary International. Year 11 pupil Isabel Ward is the first president of the club along with vice president Olivia Hughes. Isabel said: "I think the fact that it's a group run by young people for young people makes it really unique."

An Interact Club allows students to join together to tackle service projects in their community or school while working with an International Organisation dedicated to "Service Above Self". Olivia added: "It's really interesting especially because we get to help people in the local area." The Club will meet twice a month and will carry out two service projects a year: one that helps their school or community and one that promotes international understanding
