Interact Club Activities
On Friday 10th February, Prince Henry’s Interact Club hosted the 2017 fashion show. A range of students from different year groups came together to make the evening a fantastic success. The atmosphere was wonderful and everyone who came along had a great time. The raffle raised a lot of money thanks to the generosity of local businesses who donated prizes. Our hosts, Liam and Ed, kept us all entertained with their dancing and their jokes. We would like to thank the students who performed drama and music during the night, and our very own amazing teachers’ band! There was a First Dates sketch along with a Gok Wok makeover. The clothes sale afterwards was a superb way to end the evening. The proceeds from the evening will be donated to Médecins Sans Frontières and St. Richard’s Hospice.

Interact support the Tree of Light Switch On.
Members of the Interact Club supported and helped Rotarians for the Tree of Light Switch On event.Ella Wright and Megan Betteridge helped Rotarian Mike Hill with the candle holders, and Laura Bennett and Sophie Whitley were kept busy all evening dishing out the mulled (non-alcoholic) 'wine' and mince pies. They all did a brilliant job, and their help was much appreciated.
Thank you to Interact for their support!

Visit of new President & Secretary to hear the Nepal Trust
Ella Wright, this year's President of the PHHS Interact Club, and Pippa Bayliss, the secretary, visited the club on 18th November to hear the presentation from the Nepal Trust. Perhaps they were suitably impressed and motivated to take part in the extended Gap Year visit to Nepal next year?
It was great to see them in the club, many of the members were very keen to speak to them and hear about what is happening at the school.
Bridge The Gap
Members of the Interact Club were at the forefront of the Rotary Club's Bridge The Gap event. The Rotary Club hoped to bridge the gap between Workman Bridge and the new Abbey Road bridge with a huge paper chain.
The Interact Club sold more paper links than any other organisation, and helped the Rotary Club to raise more than £2200. Half of which was returned to the schools taking part, and the other half is to be used by The Rotary Club to support children's events in the town, such as Kids Out.

Since forming in October the PHHS Interact Club has been hot on the trail of fundraising and raising awareness of a wide variety of good causes. We welcome members from across the school and our aim is to work together, to have fun together and to help others.
We have already enjoyed huge successes with a range of fundraisers for good causes that include Children in Need, The Hurricane Haiyan Appeal, Operation Christmas Child and MacMillan Cancer Support. As a result of all this activity we have raised over £800 already!
To support this good will work our super team have been very busy and have so far baked over 30 cakes, painted numerous tablecloths, invented exciting new games, and have collected shoeboxes in time for Christmas. We are currently collecting vegetables for our nominated local charity Caring Hands and look forward to seeing just how much of a contribution we can raise.
We want to continue organising fun events that will provide all students with the opportunity to support both charities and their local community during their time at school, and we are always looking to recruit potential new interactors. Being an Interact Club means we work closely with the Rotary Club of Evesham and we have already been privileged to welcome the district Governor and Rotary Club International visitors at our meetings. Being part of Rotary International ensures we can draw upon links with other Interact Clubs in other schools; both local and international and we look forward to building such links in the future.
As part of our inauguration we have chosen Caring Hands Evesham and Spinal Injury Research as our two main charity projects and we look forward to raising awareness of these two causes as we move through the school year. Overall we are grateful to all the students who have come along to help the club for each event, and the staff and students who have joined in and made donations. Above all we are having lots of fun and look forward to making a positive contribution our community.
On Thursday 13th of February students at Prince Henry’s were treated to Roses and Cards from both admirers and sweethearts. The event, organised by Prince Henry’s Interact, was a wonderful success and will provide a generous contribution to our local charity Caring Hands in The Vale and our international charity Spinal Research.
Following a personalised delivery of the gifts during registration, our stall on the concourse continued to bustle throughout the day. At break we were treated to a special guest appearance from the Harmoneves, and the PHHS Barbershop continued to raise our profile throughout lunchtime.
We are grateful for the contributions made by everybody who came out to support us on the day and we are happy to have made yet another positive contribution to the community, whilst having a great deal of fun in the process.
