EarlyAct

EarlyAct™ is a school-wide service club for primary school students from years 5 and 6. It is sponsored by one of the local Rotary clubs in the area 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.

The EarlyAct™ Club is self-supporting and is encouraged to carry out three service projects annually—one each for their school and local communities, and one which furthers international understanding.
 
Meetings are organised to suit the school and students. Officers of EarlyAct™ are selected from the two senior classes of a primary school. The President, Vice President, Recording Secretary, Treasurer, Second Vice President and Corresponding Secretary are appointed by a student vote.
 
There are no dues. Monies for projects and activities are raised through EarlyAct™ Club activities. The EarlyAct™ Club submits an annual report to the sponsoring Rotary Club. 
 
WA currently has two EarlyAct™ clubs; Rosalie Primary School, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Western Endeavour and Floreat Primary School sponsored by Rotary Club of Cambridge.
