Happy World Interact Day

Interact Clubs are service clubs for young people aged 12 to 18 and are part of Rotary International.

Members of Interact clubs organize at least two projects every year, one that helps their school or local community and one that promotes international understanding.

These projects give club members the opportunity to make a difference in their school and community as well as internationally at the same time as developing leadership and team working skills and making new connections.

The Interact Club at the Royal School Wolverhampton celebrates its 10th Anniversary this year.

Since its formation in June of 2012 under the sponsorship of the Rotary Club of Tettenhall the Royal School Interact Club has, with the support of teacher Jane Kyle, prospered and become well established at the school.

Club members have experienced how to hold regular formal meetings and debate, keep accounts and how to work together to achieve the initiatives that they have set for themselves. The Club has provided entertainment for others whilst experiencing the satisfaction that comes from helping others and having fun along the way.

The enthusiasm and dynamics of the ever changing membership has seen the Club involved in a range of student led community, school, national and international initiatives and fund raising activities.

Internationally it has raised support for Shelterbox, with the school funding 5 boxes over the years, Polio Plus and Project Gambia 

More locally Club members have fundraised for Compton Care, Macmillan and the Haven and have carried out anti-litter and recycling campaigns.

The Interact Club members have also supported the City’s Rotary Clubs and have taken part in such local initiatives as Tettenhall Summer Fete, Best Foot Forward, the Christmas Santa Sleigh and Dragon Boat Racing at Himley Park.

With the ongoing support of the dedicated staff at the school and the work of the enthusiastic and talented Interact Club members we’re looking forward to seeing what the next 10 years will bring.
