Rotary strongly encourages personal development for all young people and Pembroke Rotary supports the ‘Rotary Young Leaders Awards’ (RYLA) course which develops confidence, social awareness and leadership skills. Outdoor activities, problem solving challenges and social activities make for a demanding but rewarding week and by the end new friendships will have been forged and personal aspirations met or exceeded.
All the young people without fail say that they will never forget the experience so we are looking forward to hearing back from the young people this year about their adventures.
Our last fundraiser was “A Night at the Proms” concert by the CPO (Cardiff Philharmonic Orchestra) at Folly Farm on the 6th April.
Our Club has been bringing this musical opportunity performed by the CPO to the people of Pembrokeshire for over 15 years. This great musical event is always appreciated and enjoyed by an loyal and enthusiastic audience who once had a fantastic evening out.
New this year is the Technical Tournament competition. Eight schools with 28 teams of all ages met at Pembrokeshire College on the 28th March. The brief was to design and build a crane to travel a set distance to pick up a container and then return to the start.
Teams were assessed on teamwork, their idea development, portfolio, manufacture and design and finally how well their design worked!
