One of our club members, ALICIA READE, has been engaged in VIDEO-MAKING and SONG-WRITING for projects in our District 1220…………

The Matlock-based charity, Aquabox, asked Alicia to create an ad for them to help promote their cause, an amazing project started by our colleagues in Rotary, The Rotary Club of Wirksworth.

Our own District 1220 Conference, which takes place on 4th-6th October 2019, has its own promo video! We hope you can join us in Scarborough! Register here……

Our corporate members, XP. School have published a book on their inspirational and successful vision, entitled ‘How We XP’. Please see their post below to purchase the book!Our latest book 'How We XP' on sale now!

When XP School in Doncaster opened as a Free School in September 2014 the story of its journey was only known to a handful of people. Now five years on, the 'How We XP’ book launched this Summer, shares the journey to Outstanding and internationally acclaimed school and growing Multi-Academy XP Schools Trust.

Written by the CEO and Executive Principal for the XP Schools - Gwyn ap Harri and Andy Sprakes - the book’s narrative charts their journey and focuses on the design principles which make the school different and dynamic.

‘How We XP’ - a 200 page paperback - is, as described by the authors, a true story, a manual, a guide, a document to share and an invitation to try something different - to be the change.

The school signage carries the words ‘Above all Compassion’ - ‘How We XP’ is all about that. It’s an inspirational piece of work too, which has been described as ‘half story, half instruction manual, half call to arms. That equals one and a half - it’s that good’.

Preparing students for the real world is one of the most important things a school can do. This book answers many questions often asked at XP - including, how are you different, do you still follow a curriculum with expeditions at the heart of what you do and quite simply - how does XP work?

It’s all here in ‘How We XP’.

You can purchase your book from the school office or order online by clicking below:

Our member Alicia Reade has been out and about with the Aquabox water filter talking to children about the advertising campaign she undertook for the charity.

Our immediate past president Paul West supported Aquabox during his presidential year and there is an upcoming event to support Aquabox on 6th November 2019 at The Keepmoat Stadium.

You can get tickets for this event by emailing events@doncasterrotary.org.uk or by calling Paul West on 07885 610980.

If you don't know much about Aquabox, please watch the video that Alicia put together for them, and wrote the piece 'Aqua' for.

youtu.be/W5kzQf9Ha2oI had great fun at Hayfield Lane Primary School last month when I went in to talk to the children about advertising. I decided to use my recent video ad for Aquabox to explain to the children how I went about the process of gathering the info and photos needed to put the video together, and then going on to writing and performing the music for the ad as well as Reade-Music. The children were so amazing and well engaged and went on to create their own adverts for a product at their upcoming school fair. Here you can see me playing a game of 'What is it?' with the water filter right at the beginning before they knew anything about it!
