A STUDENT has said thank you to Bridlington Rotary Club after taking part in the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA).
Jasmine Clarke, a sixth form pupil at Headlands school, attended the RYLA course in July this year.
The course, sponsored by the Rotary Club, is designed to develop leadership skills within young people through a number of outdoor team building exercises.
Jasmine said: “It was one of the best weeks of my life, it was fun and you get so much out of it you couldn’t get anywhere else.
“My favourite activity was bell boating on the canal.”
Jasmine explained that her organisation and time management skills definitely improved as a result of the course.
Earlier this month, Jasmine gave a presentation to the Rotary Club where she shared her experiences of the course with members.
Jasmine said: “The presentation went really well, I was confident about what I wanted to say and it went fine.”
The Rotary Club sponsor two young people from Bridlington to take part in the course each year in the hope that youngsters who take part will reap the long term benefits throughout their careers.
Competition for places on the week long course is high and 100% effort is required from those selected to take part.
Jasmine hopes to go to university next September to study Biomedical Science.
