Banbridge Academy Rotary youth leadership success

Congratulations to Banbridge Academy pupil Joseph Garvey who has successfully progressed through two stages of the Rotary Youth Leadership competition.

Joseph competed against a number of candidates from other Rotary clubs including Portadown, Lurgan, Dungannon and Armagh.

The group will have the opportunity to spend a day in Dublin and Belfast meeting politicians and then visit Strasbourg, where the highlight of the visit will be meeting young people from all over Europe in the European Parliament. Joseph will be joining a party of 24 young people from Ireland on this all-expenses paid visit to Europe which will take place in February 2020.

Banbridge Academy were delighted to be presented with a cheque for £100 by Rotary. This money will be used to provide facilities for the sixth form centre in the school.
