How (Not) to Erect a ShelterBox Tent

This is a light-hearted video showing some of our Rotarians erecting a ShelterBox tent during our recent Primary School Quiz night.

However, there is a much more serious side to these shelters. A ShelterBox consists of a family size tent, thermal blankets, a water purification system, solar lights, tools and cooking utensils. These shelters are designed to be sent anywhere in the world where emergency accommodation is required. Our Rotary Club, together with local primary schools, has been involved in raising funds to purchase these boxes.

Primary Schools Quiz Winners

The winning team hold the cup, with the Rotarians who managed the quiz behind them.

Congratulations to the team from Auchtergaven School, winning the Perth round of the Rotary Primary Schools Quiz.

14 teams from local schools took part, answering 10 rounds of questions at Glenearn Community Campus. It took a tie-break round to separate the top two teams! The winning team and the runners-up from Robert Douglas Memorial School will go on to the next round of the competition at Stirling in April.

Our thanks go to all the teachers and families who supported the night.


We meet: Every Wednesday from 12:45pm to 1:45pm.
In: The Royal George Hotel,
Tay Street / George Street
Perth, PH1 5LD
