The St Johns Rotary Club and Yachting New Zealand have broadened their relationship recently to cooperate in the ‘Have-a-Go’ project, which seeks to expose youngsters from schools in the Glendowie and Glen Innes suburbs, currently, to the challenges and thrills of yachting.
Rotarian Gary Key, one of the initiators of the scholarship, adds: “’Have-a-Go’ was introduced last year to students from St Pius School, and this year will include Glendowie College, Glen Taylor School(4 th year of participation), Stonefields School(4th year) St Pius   (2 nd year), and Point England School.
“We are endeavouring to add this project to our ‘Gardening in Schools’ and ‘Dictionaries in Schools’ initiatives, to name a couple; as well as our RYLA Programme which has grown rapidly in recent years, following our being selected to run the project in 2015.
“The RCOSJ Inc see these projects as part of developing our young people to have a variety of stimulating, useful and challenging experiences in their formative years.”
