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? Anyone who has enquiries about getting an Interact Club started at their High school, may phone PP Charles Rowe of the George Rotary Club during office hours at Tel: 044 8840209 Cell: 082 6005414

Outeniqua Primary Learners Share Festive Spirit

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 promotes caring, respect, empathy, responsibility, tolerance, citizenship, compassion, friendship and leadership.

"A few years ago 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. 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 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, made festive hats, knitted angels, obtained backpacks with stationary, baked cakes, supplied a Christmas tree and arranged for other treats for the get-together. Sponsorships were also obtained from Total Sandkraal and the Reformed Church in George. 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. Special recognition was also given to the children who are now leaving to go to Grade R, and each child was given a party pack to take home.

“We view our learners as citizens in the making, and part of our responsibility includes awareness of the community which they form part of”, notes Johan Smit, principal of Outeniqua Primary, “and Early Act for us provides a forum for answering this call.”

“We are so proud to be associated with the Outeniqua Primary Early Actors,” enthuses Simon Swan, president of the George Rotary Club. “Their initiatives embody the leadership, compassion and community spirit our country needs.”
