The Glenwood Interact Club is a very active, community involved aspect of Glenwood High School. It comprises mainly of Grade 11 and 12 pupils and is both a rewarding and vital aspect of the school.
I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I do know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who sought and found how to serve.
– Albert Schweitzer
Throughout the year the pupils are hard at work supporting various charities. We support ‘The Sunflower Fund’, ‘Feed the Babies’, ‘C.H.O.C’, The ‘Jes Foord Foundation’ as well as East Coast Radio ‘Toy Story’.
The pupils have also become very involved with Makabongwe Pre-School which is situated in the Warwick Triangle area. The pupils get great enjoyment from the pupils at the school and find cleaning the school and doing activities with them very rewarding.
As well as a number of fundraising activities for the above-mentioned charities the club also visits soup kitchens, old age homes and help the Rotary Club of Durban where needed.
All of the past and present pupils of the school who have actively participated in outreach and helping those in need have found it a very rewarding experience and one that will hold them in good stead for their futures.
I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.
