If you want to participate in fun, meaningful service projects while developing leadership skills and meeting new friends, Interact is for you!
The aim of Interact is to complete at least two community service projects, one of which furthers international understanding and goodwill.
Interact is now in its 3rd year at Bodmin and has already had a wide range of experiences, including being visited by a resident of Christchurch, New Zealand , who told the students about the 2011 earthquake and showed some pictures of the damage caused. Bodmin Interact was also invited to the Oxfam Conference on Global Poverty at Ashton Court Manor in Bristol and met a survivor of the typhoon that hit the Philippines in 2010.
This year Interact has voted to arrange events in aid of “Send a Friend to School” (www.sendmyfriend.org) and “CHICKS” (www.chicks.org.uk). To support these causes, and others, we already have activities planned, including shopping for Christmas gifts for the White House residents, before visiting to present them, and a trip to the CHICKS retreat, in addition to selling hot chocolates.
Meetings are every Tuesday lunch time in H12.
Further details will be available on our Moodle page and questions can be directed to Miss Gulledge (Interact Advisory Teacher).
