Interact Handover to new President

Interact Handover to new President

At Great Marlow School Interact is a student run club, with the help of the local Rotary, a team of sixth formers plan events to raise money for two chosen charities. This year the President was Kai McKenzie and Vice President was Kirsten Barretto. They have run multiple fund raising events such as cake, doughnut and sweet sales as well as raffles to raise money for the Build on Books Foundation as well as the Kyrece Legacy Foundation. They also organised a book drive in which the whole school helped in bringing together fiction and non-fiction books as well as school supplies for to Build on Books Foundation to send to children in Sierra Leone. They have also helped out with a few local events such as the Santa Fun Run in December, the Cookham fete and a fun day out for young carers.

This year they have made £637.70 which will be divided between the two charities. Build on Books helps children in Sierra Leone get back into school and learning again after many schools were shut down by the Ebola crisis. The Kyrece Legacy Foundation was set up after former student Kyrece Francis drowned in the Thames. They promote water safety and provide and maintain life rings up and down the Thames.

Kai will be handing over his duties to Dennvar Chikoto as President and Kirsten will be handing over to Nicole Imperio the new Vice-President. “I think this is a great opportunity to improve your organisational skills and also mature as a person, while working towards a cause you care about” Kirsten said. “I’m sure that Dennvar and Nicole will do a great job in carrying on the work that we’ve started to do here” Kai commented. Nicole and Dennvar are both great students and we look forward to seeing what they are able to accomplish in the year to come.
