June is a busy time for Rotary members, each year we present to year 5 of local primary schools an Illustrated Dictionary, this year the two Sherburn Schools were included. 26 Dictionaries were presented to pupils at Hungate and 32 to Athelston. The Dictionaries were well received and as teachers explained they will be important in year 6 and as they transfer to their secondary education. As expected the behaviour of the children was exemplary we look forward to seeing them again next year.
We will continue to celebrate the success of Hannah Buckley from Sherburn High who succeeded in the Rotary Regional Young Chef competition. Hannah will meet and receive a presentation from Rosemary Shreager on August Bank Holiday Monday.
Two students from Sherburn High have been supported to attend a week long Leadership course, one in the dales, the second sailing a ship along the west coast, these “scholarships” are awarded each year so if you have children at Sherburn High watch out for information for next years event. This years students will be feedback there experience to the club members on September 6th, it is great to see how this experience changes the students comparing interview to feedback.
Work has started with Sherburn High on this years Young Chef and Young Voice competitions.
