30 Drums at The Boys School should make some noise ;)

Windsor & Eton Rotary Club have just helped fund 30 traditional drums for Windsor Boys School and I went along today, in my capacity as Chair of Youth Committee, to give James Mainwaring the cheque. Joel & Josh, keen drummers, were on hand to carry the cheque to the bank 😉

He also gave me the contact details of the new head’s PA so I can arrange a meeting to talk about our Youth Speaks Competition.

We’ve had to cancel the last 2 years and it was proving difficult back then to get the right teachers’ attention within the local schools, so that challenge in itself is getting tougher!

If you know who we should talk to at the various middle and high schools across Windsor then please, point me in the right direction. Thank you.

There are also a number of other competitions teachers may be interested in… I have emailed the following to all the local schools and contacts I have but they keep changing, so if you can help I’d appreciate it… thank you.

Re-invigorating Rotary Youth Competitions in Windsor

For many years Windsor & Eton Rotary Club has been running the Rotary Youth Speaks Competition which encourages young people in groups of 3, to compete initially within their school and then against other Windsor schools in a speaking competition.

Excellent for teaching presentation skills which will hold them in good stead in the years to come.

Covid rudely interrupted the 2019 competition, bringing it to an abrupt end and 2020 didn’t happen, so we’ll definitely be getting this back on track, with your help, in 2021-22. 

Youth Speaks: A Debate details….

There are two age groups 11-13 and 14-17

What I need to do is run the first heat in November. I’m hoping we can secure Jafar Hall at Eton College and so need to know which teacher to liaise with at each school.

Please forward this email to the relevant teacher in your school and ask them to contact me as soon as possible. Thank you. 

Young Environmentalist details…

I had been hoping to launch the Young Environmentalist competition in 2020 but obviously this didn’t happen.

Which teacher in your school would find this competition interesting and be happy to lead the way? Please forward this email and ask them to get in touch so we can lay the ground to get this started in 2021. Thank you.
