Kyla Hislop, this year’s president of the Alford Academy Interact Club, received the trophy for the most active interact club in Rotary District 1010.

This is the district of Rotary International which covers all parts of Scotland from Stirling in the south to the Shetland Isles in the north.

Kyla was joined by Molly Spooner to tell the Rotary Club members about their experiences at the District’s RYLA (Rotary Young Leadership Award) camp in July, which Alford Academy and the Rotary Club sponsored jointly.

They were presented with their certificates from the week long camp, and spoke about the personal benefits gained during the week.

They went on to outline the Interact Club’s ambitious plans for fundraising this year which includes the Poppy Appeal and Children in Need, for which they are selling Pudsey memorabilia and have organised a number of fun events in the Academy such as a staff jelly eating competition and a staff talent show.
