Interact is a Rotary citizenship program for young people 18 and under.Our Club is 7 years old – just about to start its 8th – the second oldest in 1090 district!
Across our District we have over 20 Clubs, all different and focusing on different ranges of ages as required. There is no wrong or right – it’s more about what works in each location. Our Club started an Interact Club at Wye Valley School, now Bourne End Academy 7 years ago. Originally just for year 13 it has now expanded to include both years 12 and 13 – the sixth form.
Our Club has been very active, has appeared at District Conferences, and has raised money for local and international good causes,
Here we are, collecting at Heathrow T5 for children in need, with Judith Diment DG for Rotary area 1090.
Our Interactors are always welcome at our Club and visit regularly as well as help the Rotary Club – a prime example being the Christmas collections with Santa.
The Interact Club is “twinned” Libala High School in Zambia who also have a Club and a number of exchange visits have taken place.
For every year of its existence our Interactors have been awarded a Presidential Citation from the RI President. – no mean achievement!
