Rotary Youth Leadership Award

Report from Mrs Sinclair

Congratulations to Sophie Tougher Mitchell, Emily Tougher Mitchell and James Mullen who were awarded the Rotary Youth Leadership Award last night in the Bentley Hotel. We were all made very welcome and had a lovely meal followed by the presentations. At the presentations we were delighted to hear that Sophie had won the The John Mair Award.

The Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) is an amazing opportunity and experience for young people. It was clear from the action-packed week that RYLA really does develop leadership skills and instils a sense of pride in achievement. It stimulates the mind and body and it incorporates great team spirit and sportsmanship.

The John Mair Awards are presented to the two individuals who, in the judgment of their peers, have shown the most overall improvement during their respective weeks at RYLA. Young people from all over Scotland attend for one week in July.

Mrs Mair was on hand to present the award in memory of her late husband.
