Have you thought about a Student Exchange?

Every year Rotary International offers students the chance to go on a 12 month exchange in countries like France, Germany, Holland, Argentina, plus more.

It is not as hard as it might sound because Rotary gives you a lot of support and you will have your own support person in your exchange country while you are away. You don’t have to know the language before you go. One of the highlights is a summer trip around Europe or your host country.

"It’s amazing I’ve come this far, I never would have guessed this is where I would be right now. Looking back on the year I’ve had so many once in a lifetime opportunities and it’s the mind set of being willing to say yes to anything offered that really makes a great year.  You learn to be part of a different culture and end up with friends all over the world."

Students that have been on exchange tell Rotary that it is the best thing they have ever done and hey come back with great confidence and independence and really ready to get on with university or whatever they are doing next.

Nominations for District Governor

I am sending this message out on behalf of PDG Dr Iain Wakefield who is Chair of the District Nominating Committee which each year selects the District Governor Designate for two years time.

This year we are seeking nominations for the Governor for 2021-22 or 2022-23. This person will lead what will be one new and larger district made up of what is currently Districts 9910 and 9920. 

Both Districts are following the same selection process and will be working together to each select a candidate. Hence we are seeking candidates to be Governor in either 2021-22 or 2022-23.
