Regular Meeting highlights:
On 28th August, 2014, we welcomed the 2 students from Saint Paul’s School that our club sponsored to the Summer Camp in Manchester, UK. Ricky and Cherry visited Rotary International District 1280 and 1050. They were in Great Haywood, Albert Dock and Wales. They began the Summer Camp in Petty Pool meeting with other countries youngsters from France, Hungary, Turkey, Spain and Portugal. Both gave a very pictorial presentation of their trip experience, added with a pleasant surprise in seeing PP Ip and his better half inside some photos. PP Ip kept a big secret from us as he had a timely graduation ceremony to attend for his nephew and took the opportunity to visit them and meet with their host Rtn Eric and other fellow Rotarians from the local clubs.
It was a huge comfort to see Cherry and Ricky delivered a confidence-filled presentation in English which ended a Mandarin song singing, same as what they did during their farewell party in the camp. Equally heartwarming is to hear the very positive feedback and appreciation from the School teacher Mr Lai and Principal Alex on the valuable benefits this UK summer camp has on the chosen students.
Box Collection: $620.
