2013 09 Early Act

Outeniqua Primary Early Act Reachs 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 includes as focus areas the promotion of a culture of public service, the development of leadership qualities and awareness of community needs.

"As we were busy deciding on our next community project, 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. We wanted to do something special for these children, and our Early Actors proved to be more than able for the task."

The learners at the Early Act club knitted scarves for each child, and cakes were made 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, sang to the children with instrumental accompaniment and then played with the children in the play area.

Anyone who has enquiries about getting an Early Act Club started at their primary school, may phone Wilhelm van der Vyver of the George Rotary Club during office hours at 044 873 0215.

On Monday 11 March the Early Act Club at Outeniqua Primary School was officially launched. The learners of the entire grade 6 year group (7 classes split between Afrikaans and English) will be taking part in this initiative with the end goal of eventually extending this to all the grades in the school. Two class representatives have been appointed for each of the 7 classes, with a central committee of seven learners. Their first project has involved the collection of donations and gifts for the Children's Red Cross Hospital in Cape Town (some of the learners in the school have recently been treated there for cancer). The teacher in charge is Ms Amanda Hattingh, and Rotarian Wilhelm has been giving support from the club's side. President Donald inducted the Early Actors Monday morning, with Melvin and Wilhelm present for moral support.
