The Rotary Young Leaders Award
Two sixth formers Cara & Josh were selected and sponsored by The Wareham Rotary Club to attend the “Rotary Young Leaders Award”. They embarked on an action packed weekend at The Tile Barn in Hampshire where they participated in team & leadership challenges.
Josh said “I had such an amazing time. It allowed me to become so much more confident within myself and my ability to help others as part of a team and leading that team to be the best they could be. Overall my favourite part was the Nightline Challenge as it made me rely on the team for guidance and support as we were all blindfolded, it was literally the blind leading the blind! The weekend has enabled me to develop my communication, teamwork and leadership skills, which I am very grateful for.”
Cara said “Although I was initially nervous, once I settled in, I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and my confidence improved. We did various team and leadership activities including one blindfolded; with the help of my team mates I completed the task successfully. I have learn many new skills and made some great new friends. I would like to say a huge thank you for all who encouraged me and the Rotary who sponsored us to attend.”
