Interact Club

Our Interact Club was the first to be created in the district and has now been established in the Academy for over ten years.

The Club benefits from sponsorship by individuals from the Rotary Club of Bexley who provide fantastic support and guidance for our young members.

It is a self-governing and self-supporting club for 14-18 year olds who meet fortnightly on a Tuesday in the Conference Room.

The club met at the start of the year, quickly and unequivocally electing its board of directors, who have led the activities throughout the year ably supported by the club members.

The Interact name is a combination of the words international and action and this is what we strive to achieve in the activities we are involved in. This year the club has concentrated its fundraising activities in helping to raise money for the forthcoming Kenya trip where students will, over the course of ten days, trek to a remote village and assist the renovation of the school to provide for the next generation of young learners. The Interact Club has raised monies through the sale of Christmas Candy Canes, roses for Valentine’s Day and even homemade chocolate cakes for Easter. A number of the club's members also braved the wintry elements to help the Rotary Club Christmas collections raising £8400.

In recent years, the Interact Club has organised events and raised monies for a variety of good causes both locally and internationally: Demelza House, Age Concern, Shelter Boxes for the displaced in far-flung corners of the world like Myanmar and Swaziland and even provided a PC, printer and educational resources for our partner school in Witkop, Namibia.

In addition to which, there is the organisation of the Sixth Form Ball at Leeds Castle which, despite being a fantastic occasion, also helps to raise money for charitable causes.

There is a forthcoming meeting soon wherein the group will decide which cause(s) will be the recipients of £300 worth of goodwill.

Come along and join us to decide what we do, when we do it and who we give to.
