For several years now the Rotary Club of Osgoldcross and Elmet has sponsored a student on the Rotary Youth Leadership Award scheme (RYLA), this year Rhianne Downey from De Lacey Academy represented the Rotary club in the scheme.
RYLA is a 5 day residential courses held in August for young people. The chosen candidates attend a week’s course, run by Rotary, at the outdoor centre at Hebden Hey.
The week is designed to develop leadership potential and teamwork. Rhianne felt the week greatly benefited her, and was a fantastic opportunity which she thoroughly enjoyed.
