EarlyAct™ is a school-wide service club for elementary students from ages 5 to 13. It is sponsored by one of the local Rotary clubs in the township in which the school is located. The mission and operation of EarlyAct™ are closely linked to the ideals of Rotary and provide the foundation and natural succession into Interact.

EarlyAct™ provides young students the opportunity for gaining an increased awareness and knowledge of their community and the world. At a young age, all students can easily be encouraged to be caring and helpful. Their minds are open to recognize the dignity and worth of each individual which builds respect for others.

EarlyAct™ also engages students in character-building activities and prepares them for leadership roles to identify and carry out projects which benefit their school, local and global communities.

Interact is Rotary International's service club for young people ages 12 to 18. Interact clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary clubs, which provide support and guidance, but they are self-governing and self-supporting.

Club membership varies greatly. Clubs can be single gender or mixed, large or small. They can draw from the student body of a single high school or from two or more high schools in the same community.

Each year, Interact clubs complete at least two community service projects, one of which furthers international understanding and goodwill. Through these efforts, Interactors develop a network of friendships with local and overseas clubs and learn the importance of - Developing leadership skills and personal integrity - Demonstrating helpfulness and respect for others - Understanding the value of individual responsibility and hard work - Advancing international understanding and goodwill.

As one of the most significant and fastest-growing programs of Rotary service, with more than 10,700 clubs in 109 countries and geographical areas, Interact has become a worldwide phenomenon. Almost 200,000 young people are involved in Interact.

Could this be a possibility for students at your local high school? This could be a great opportunity for your Rotary Club to sponsor this program at our local high school. Let's see what we can do as Rotarians to expand this program throughout District 9350.

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.
