February 17, 2020 by Mrs Blair | Comments Off on UNA & Rotarians make plans for the future…

Today, Christine and Anne from Forres Rotary club, dropped by to discuss our plans to support Bunono School in Uganda.

We discussed…

*Details for our challenge day walk.  We invited Forres Rotarians to join us on the day to take photos and share our event/photos with the school on their next visit to Bunon school this May.


*Rotarians and elderly members from Forres community joining our UNA group to an afternoon of crafts.  This will further build Sustainable Communitites and Good Health and Wellbeing in all age groups.  Photos taken of this event will be shared along with pen pals letters the children will be writing.


*The Bunono school shoe collection and the logistics surrounding this task.  Possibility of creating a collection then working with local projects to distribute shoes and taking a batch to Bunono School in May.  further discussions to take place.  Other ideas involved having local church members and Forres Rotarians working together with Alves Primary to crochet little dolls wearing African material.  It is hope they may be taken over next year.


*Details of sanitation at the school and how we can campaign for childrens rights to be the highest standards.  This is ongoing and further information from Rotarians is being gathered about Bunono Schools issues.

Today, we began learning about the needs of the children at Bunono school in Uganda. We are very interested in promoting the rights of all children.  UNA members couldn’t believe the daily challenges these children face and are determined to help.  We have gathered our thoughts on what we feel is unfair and will begin the process of planning how to take action and support.  We will post our plan once discussed further.

Pam Watson visit

October 8, 2019 by Mrs Blair | Comments Off on Pam Watson visit

Pam came in to teach UNA pupils how to provide gentle exercise to music for elderly people.  This is to support an event that UNA children will run after the holidays. The children were taught about the needs and abilities of the people they would be working with.  Music, warm up, main sessions and cool down was explained.  The children were able to understand the measures they needed to incorporate in order to keep their elderly members safe during exercise.  They fully understood the need for exercises that support independence in the elderly.  The children will learn about International Day for Older Persons and run this event.  Rotary members will escort elderly members from the Forres area by bus to join us on Thursday 31st October for our active event.
