Rota Kids was set up at Bowerham in 2013 and is a great opportunity for kids in school to learn to volunteer and contribute to their community. We are always very happy to hear from any children (and families) who would like to get involved with Rota Kids so please contact Mrs Steel for more information.

What are we doing at the moment?

Meetings

We meet every other Tuesday at 12.30pm.

Interested in holding a committee position or just fancy helping out ? Come and collect a Job Description and an application form from the Rota Kid information boxes outside the Deputy’s Office!

At the moment we are:

  • Collecting tinned goods to give to the Olive Branch as they are in desperate need of food to help out their families. We want to collect four shopping bags full of food please. All donations gratefully received.

Past Achievements

On the 30th June we helped the “Friends Of Greaves Park” with a litter pick. We met at 2pm and worked really hard in the sun collecting litter from around the play area and surrounding trees. Thank you to everyone who came to help.

This year we have raised nearly £50. We will be splitting the money between buying water filters for Hawaii and a baby changing

unit for top school. Thank you for coming to our coconut shy!
