On the 19th of November, Cowbridge Rotary held its annual Rotary Youth Night. This was the first year that the parents were invited to listen to presentations. The evening started with the first presentation done by Head Boy Jack Jenner and Head Girl Jess Wadey. They spoke about their involvement in the school and the youth services that Rotary are involved with – this includes Rotary young chef and Rotary young musician.
Then the chair and vice chair of Cowbridge Interact, Megan Bailey and Sophie Oakes, gave a presentation on Interact and its work with the citation. The group meet up every Thursday lunchtime and work towards completing a set list of objectives on the citation. The citation changes every year to focus on the different areas of Rotary and must be achieved in different ways e.g. fundraising/raising awareness of polio eradication. They spoke about fundraising done over the last year and were also presented with the previous citations of the last two years which are the highest achievement in Rotary.
The third presentation was done by Rhys Potter who spoke about the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards held in Storey Arms. Finally, Megan Bailey and Treasurer Rhian Crossman spoke about their Rotary youth exchanges to Italy and Romania. The evening also included speeches by the Head teacher, Mr Ling, Bob Wilson, Mrs Adams and Paul Tromans who is the chair of the Youth Services Committee.
