Junior Rotarians

A big thank you to the valiant office holders of Dungannon Rotary Club who set out for a snow-bound Academy on Thursday morning to recognise the Academy’s participation in the   Rotary Youth Leadership Awards. Mrs Joan Gormley presented the students with their membership pins and bestowed on one highly-favoured Year 13 student, Niamh Gormley, the Presidential Chain of Office. The Rotary Youth Leadership Awards is an invaluable initiative which promotes leadership skills among young people by giving them the appetite and the opportunity  to make a real difference in their community . And making that difference real was the Academy’s fundraising contribution of over £800 to Shelterbox Disaster, a humanitarian  relief organisation which provides emergency shelter and vital supplies to communities overwhelmed by humanitarian crisis.  We take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank the local Rotarians for their unique contribution to the extra-curricular life of the Academy across so many inspirational and rewarding projects.
