Earlyact Learners Reach Out

Outeniqua Primary Learners Reach Out

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 has as purpose to provide young learners with opportunities to participate in active citizenship in a culturally diverse democratic society in an interdependent world.
"A few years ago we became aware of the Wikkelwurms project at Bethesda", comments Danielle Barnard, 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. Over the past few years we have on various occasions reached out to these very special children, and this year we again wanted to do something for those leaving to go to Grade 1. We had to do this whilst curtailed by the Covid-pandemic. Our Early Actors proved to be more than able for the task."
The learners at the Early Act club, assisted by their parents, supplied backpacks with a complete stationary set including a space case, flip file, scissors, crayons, pencils, sharpener and ruler. On 17 November 2020 the school kits were handed over.
“Part of our mission as a school is providing emotional and social support in the development of our learners towards adulthood”, notes Johan Smit, principal of Outeniqua Primary, “and Early Act for us provides a forum for answering this responsibility.”
“We are so proud to be associated with the Outeniqua Primary Early Actors,” enthuses Andrew Jeffery, president of the George Rotary Club. “Their initiatives embody the leadership, compassion and community spirit our country needs.”
