Rota Kids 2018-2019

A huge thank you to all of the children who filled in an application form to become a Rota Kid! We now have a great team of children ready to start work.

Rota Kids President: Faith

Rota Kids Secretary: Sophie

Rota Kids Treasurer: Demi


Out new President, Secretary, and Treasurer went with Mrs Hill to East Rainton Primary School on Friday 12th October to meet with members of the Rotary Club plus, Eppleton and East Rainton Rota Kids! The children spent time getting to know each other over a drink and lovely buffet.

We now have a clear plan for Rota Kids in the Coalfields and can't wait to start work.


Rota Kids have started to collect pre-loved glasses to send to Africa - the collection point is in the school entrance.

The team held their very first tuck shop on Friday 1st February - the next tuck shop will be Friday 1st March at 10:30pm.

The Rota Kids are now running a successful healthy tuck shop every Friday morning on the school playground. If you would like a drink of orange, apple or blackcurrant juice or raisins, see us on the yard! 

Hetton Primary School is now recognised by the Rotary Club of Hetton-le-Hole with the setting up of: ROTA KIDS!


RotaKids  is an exciting way for those 12 and under to lead and engage in important, lively activities that will make a positive difference in  their school, in their local community and globally. At the same time RotaKids develop the ability and confidence to take up their place in society as responsible, successful, effective citizens both now and in the future.
It is sponsored by a local Rotary Club in or near the town in which the school or group is located. It is chartered through RIBI. 
As citizenship is part of the school curriculum this is an opportunity for Rotary to support and expand the work already happening in school. The decisions made always involve the RotaKids.  Jobs for fundraising or service projects can be divided up between the class in lesson times.  This develops team work.
