Newman School

Last month saw the traditional "Kids Out" visit to Cleethorpes by pupils from Newman School. Rotarians John Walton and Phil Crutchley accompanied 14 pupils, staff and carers from Newman School on the annual visit to the seaside. The visit was led, as always, by Rotarian Catherine Bridge.

Tom Knight was invited to the Fortem Trainee of the Year Awards which was held at London Zoo on 17 November. Team North had presented the Newman School path as their entry in to the Team Challenge competition and they WON the award. Tom was very proud and honoured to be asked to join them on stage on behalf of the Club to collect the award.

Lots of very nice people are using the new woodland path at Newman School, and later this week we are being joined by Ray Mathews and members of the school, Eurovia and Fortem to celebrate the project.

After four weeks of hard physical labour by 15 Rotary volunteers, 42 Fortem volunteers and several experts from Eurovia, the adventure path at Newman School was completed on 1 September. The path was officially opened on 12 September by the Mayor, Councillor Eve Rose Keenan and her consort.

A brilliant partnership between Rotherham Sitwell Rotary Club, Fortem and Eurovia means pupils at Newman school can appreciate the world outside.

Further to an earlier news item on Newman School, a number of Sitwell Rotarians including incoming President Ann visited Newman School last Friday for their "Rotherham by the Sea" event.

Instead of the usual “Kid’s Day Out” when we take pupils to the seaside, we have donated £300 to Newman School. Teacher Catherine Bridge says they will use the money to “bring the seaside to Newman.” To achieve this, she is ordering a new sand pit and other fun toys and is even trying to arrange for an ice cream van to come as well. “Cleethorpes Day” will take place on 24 June.
