Teens on the right course

A PAIR of Kirkby teenagers have been registered on the Rotary Young Leadership Awards (RYLA) scheme with funding from Kirkby Rotary Club.

Ryan Poole (14) and Corie Morgan (15) will be able to develop their leadership skills during a weekend course of team building and initiative, which will include discussions and activities such as canoeing, raft building and abseiling.

Both Ryan and Corie are members of the Kirkby Detachment Army Cadet Force. Ryan is interested in first aid, climbing and skydiving and aims to become an outdoor activities instructor.

Corie is also keen on climbing and has completed courses in outdoor activities, fieldcraft and shooting. He hopes to become an army medic.

The pair will attend the course in April at the White Hall Centre in Derbyshire.
