The Wirksworth Rotary Club has built up close relationships with the local schools over a number of years and we are very proud to be involved where we can to help in the development of young people of Wirksworth and the surrounding area.

Our activities include assisting with reading at the infants school and providing and presenting dictionaries to each year 6 child at the primary schools.  

At the Anthony Gell School we facilitate and judge the following Rotary International of Britain & Ireland (RIBI) competitions:

  • Young Chef
  • Young Musician
  • Young Photographer
  • Young Poet
  • Young Speaker
  • Young Writer

We also try to use the vocational skills and experience we have within our members to help young people in areas such as job applications, CV writing and interview skills. As part of this we have a programme in place to help the year 10 students at the Anthony Gell School produce their CVs.
