Early Sct WikkelWurms

20141007
Recently the Early Act Club at Outeniqua Primary School concluded their latest community service project. Early Act is sponsored at primary schools by the international Rotary service organization and includes as focus areas the promotion of a culture of public service, the development of leadership qualities and awareness of community needs.

"Last year we became aware of the Wikkelwurms project at Bethesda", comments Amanda Hattingh, teacher and Early Act coordinator at Outeniqua Primary. "The initiative comprises a stimulation project for children with developmental delays from ages 2 to 6 years, with the children coming from disadvantaged families. Last year we reached out to these very special children, and this year we again wanted to do something extraordinary for them. Our Early Actors proved to be more than able for the task."

The learners at the Early Act club assisted by their parents baked cakes and arranged for other treats for the get-together. On the day of the visit a group of approximately 40 Early Actors arrived at the Wikkelwurms area at Bethesda, handed over the cakes, and then played with the children in the play area. Food parcels were also left for the children to take to their homes.

“We want to involve our learners in the local community of which we form a part”, notes Johan Smit, principal of Outeniqua Primary, “and Early Act for us provides a forum for doing so.”

“We are so proud to be associated with the Outeniqua Primary Early Actors,” enthuses Di Kershaw, president of the George Rotary Club. “They embody our motto of Service Above Self, and display the leadership qualities our country needs.”
