The MUN Final is scheduled for March 25th at the Parliament Building at 9 a.m. This eagerly anticipated Final will showcase the 7 weeks of preparation by the students as they seek to represent their 'countries' as delegates.    
Pictured above are the members from our club and Rotaract Club of South Barbados that supported the Rota-lympics games night on Saturday, March 18th in celebration of World Rotaract Week.
Rtn Kaye Williams recently returned from the 23rd Annual Commonwealth Lawyers Association conference in Goa, India. The conference hosted 500 lawyers, judges whether sitting or retired of the Supreme Court, Court of Appeal, Presidents of Law Societies and Bar Associations along with Attorney Generals from 56 nations. 
42 Presidents of Law Societies and Bar Associations signed a declaration preserving the independence of the judiciary and ensuring the independence of the Legal Profession.
Rotary International

For a long time, Rotary thought about measurement in terms of the money and time that we invested in a project, or the number of people that we trained through our project and programs. While these types of information are useful to gather, our approach to measuring our results is changing. 

It remains important to celebrate the money, time, and other resources we bring to help address needs in a community, yet we cannot stop there. We have bigger goals than that. Our members want to improve the quality of life in communities near and far.

After a week of Peace - building and Community Service, the Rotaract Clubs of Barbados culminated World Rotaract Week with a Rotalympics. The activities hosted at Oasis in Kendal Hill, saw fierce but healthy competition between the clubs in activities calling for speed, strength and agility. 
Ultimately, there could only be one winner and that was Rotary as the members of all the clubs benefited greatly from the enjoyable fellowship evening.
The Rotaract Club of South Barbados spearheaded the installation of a Peace Pole at The St. Michael School for World Rotaract Week. Thanks to the support of their sponsor club, Rotary Club of Barbados South, and our partner Clubs, Rotaract Club of Barbados and Rotaract Club of Barbados West, a peaceful space has been created for the students at the school. Interactors also eagerly participated in the ceremony as shown in the highlights above.
