Rotary Club Of Warwick

Oct27 - Young scholars come to lunch

Rotary Club of Warwick welcomed young students from local secondary schools to their annual scholar’s lunch recently.

Eight final year students from Myton, Kings High, Warwick and Aylesford sixth forms, together with their teachers, joined Rotarians for lunch at Warwick Hilton and talked about their aspirations for the future.

A further five students from Aylesford school came to tell the audience about their recent visit to South Africa as part of Operation Wallasea. The Rotary Club had helped some of them raise the necessary funds to go on this Conservation based study tour. The first week was spent in a game reserve in Kruger National Park where a mixture of lectures and game drives focussed on the conservation of endangered species. They also spent a night under the stars in a camp, and met with local people. On the second week they moved to the coast where they learned to scuba dive to investigate the underwater habitats. The young people returned passionate about the need to protect the wildlife and said the trip had been life changing for them.

President John Taylor thanked everyone for taking time out from preparing for their exams and wished them all every success for the future.
