New Generations Committee 2012 - 2013
Ian E Brown – Convenor
Brian Raine– Vice Convenor
I attended the 3 Perth Clubs meeting on 14th May, 2012 and, following on from this, the 3 New Generations Conveners have produced a booklet which has been issued to each of the state schools setting out what each club does and when. We still need, however, to actively approach the private schools with all our activities and this has now been set in motion.
The new Committee has met and we are recommending that we continue with RYLA, the Young Artist and Young Singer competitions and the Mock interviews at Strathallan School.
In addition, we wish to offer financial support to a young local sportsperson through Sports-aid as we have done in the past. Our 2012/13 sportspersons are Camilla Hattersley, swimmer and Cameron Revelle, Olympic Canoe slalom.
Also, at the 3 Clubs meeting, all the Clubs agreed to financially support the Mini Olympics as had been done previously. These are to held in Aschaffenburg, which is one of Perth’s twin towns, from 30th July to 3rd August, 2013.
Our Committee has agreed to support the setting up of an Interact Club BUT only if all the Perth Clubs were committed and I await further details from my fellow New Generations Conveners on this.
Unfortunately, the Museum and Art Gallery is not available this year for the usual exhibition by the Perthshire Art Association but they have agreed to participate in the judging of our Young Artist Competition. This is most disappointing for them as this is their Centenary year. We will be investigating where we could exhibit the winning paintings.
