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 Take Hands With Community

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 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, supplied blankets, made food parcels, 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 snacks, and then played with the children in the play area. Each child was given a food parcel and blanket to take home.

“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 Simon Swan, president of the George Rotary Club. “Their initiatives embody the leadership, compassion and community spirit our country needs.”

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.

Laerskool Outeniqua Vat Hande Met Gemeenskap

Onlangs het die Early Act Klub by Laerskool Outeniqua hulle nuutste gemeenskapsprojek voltooi. Early Act word by laerskole deur die internasionale Rotary diensorganisasie ondersteun en het as doel om geleenthede te verskaf aan jong leerders vir aktiewe burgerskap in a kultureel diverse samelewing in ‘n interafhanklike wêreld.

"Ons het ‘n paar jaar gelede bewus geword van die Wikkelwurms projek by Bethesda", vertel Amanda Hattingh, onderwyser en Early Act koordineerder by Laerskool Outeniqua. "Die inisiatief behels 'n stimulasieprojek vir kinders met ontwikkelingsagterstande tussen die ouderdomme van 2 en 6 jaar, met die kinders wat kom uit benadeelde gemeenskappe. Oor die afgelope paar jaar het ons verskeie kere na hierdie spesiale kinders uitgereik, en hierdie jaar wou ons graag weer iets besonders vir hul vermag. Ons Early Actors was meer as opgewasse vir die taak."

Die leerders by die Early Act klub, bygestaan deur hul ouers, het komberse voorsien, kospakkies bymekaargesit, koek gebak en ander snuisterye gereël vir die samekoms. Op die dag van die besoek het sowat 40 Early Actors by die Wikkelwurms area by Bethesda aangekom, die koek en eetgoed aan die kinders uitgedeel, en toe met die kinders in die speelarea gespeel. Elke kind het ‘n kospakkie en kombers gekry om huistoe te neem.

“Deel van ons missie as ‘n skool is om emosionele en sosiale ondersteuning te gee in die ontwikkeling van ons leerders tot volwassenheid,” vertel Johan Smit, die prinsipaal van Outeniqua Laerskool, “en Early Act verskaf aan ons ‘n manier om ons hieraan te verantwoord.”

“Ons is so trots om met die Outeniqua Early Actors geassossieer te word,” sê Simon Swan, president van die George Rotariërklub. “Hulle inisiatiewe verpersoonlik die leierskap, empatie en gemeenskapsbetrokkenheid wat ons land baie nodig het.”

Enige persoon wat navrae het oor die lansering van 'n Early Act klub by hul laerskool is welkom om met Wilhelm van der Vyver van die George Rotary Klub te skakel tydens kantoorure by 044 873 0215.
