A SCHOOL group has been set-up to operate in partnership with Barnard Castle Rotary Club.

Teesdale School, in Barnard Castle, established the Teesdale Rotary Interact Club to develop links with local, national and international communities.

The initiative will be run by the students and its president, year eleven student Emma Turner, was recently elected.

Emma, who has just completed her GCSEs, thanked club members for voting her into the position and said: “I am looking forward to working with them as we move forward in the next academic year.”

Chrissie Michaels, president of Barnard Castle Rotary Club, who visited the school to congratulate Emma on her election, added: “Interact Clubs are a great way for young people to develop their leadership skills.

“I am already impressed by the leadership shown by Emma as we work together to develop the club at Teesdale School.”
