‘Interact clubs’ bring together young people ages 12-18 to develop leadership skills while discovering the power of ‘service above self’, which is the main Rotary International principle.
The aim is to show students how serious leadership can be seriously fun. Students will take action to make a difference in their school and community, discover new cultures and promote international understanding.
It’s about becoming a leader in the school and community, having fun and making new friends from around the world.
Interact clubs organise at least two projects every year, one that helps their school or community and one that promotes international understanding.
Rotary club sponsors mentor and guide ‘interactors’ as they carry out projects and develop leadership skills.
The official celebratory launch (Charter) took place on the evening of March 4. After the formalities, there was an opportunity for students, parents, staff and Rotarians to enjoy a buffet and have a go at ‘new age indoor kurling’.
