PORT Shepstone Secondary Rotary Interact Club (PSSRIC) board members for 2016 were inducted on Thursday.

The club is made up of pupils who believe in giving back as part of the Port Shepstone Rotary vision.

School Rotary interact clubs raise funds for Rotary, who in turn, donate to various charities.

Rotary’s Dell Pendock and Port Shepstone Secondary School teacher Jenny Moses, who co-ordinates the interact club, inducted the members.

Pendock said being part of this club means getting out of one’s comfort zone.

“Rotary is all about fellowship, it enables one to grow and there is no need for anyone of you to hold back. Its about commitment to serve the community.”

She encouraged and congratulated club members and said being a Rotarian enables one to grow.

Newly elected PSSRIC president, Leriska­ Mothilall, said she is honoured to lead the club, with the assistance of board members.

Mothilall said they are ready for their first fund-raiser, a Valentine’s Day show on 12 February, at the school.

“We are honoured to do something for those less privileged.

“It makes us feel good as the youth of this country.”

Rotary will sell roses and cakes to pupils­ throughout the week as a fund-raising initiative and will be taking music requests at the event.

The interact club will meet weekly to discuss other fund-raising ideas.

The new board members are Mothilall (president), Calvin Mohunlal (vice- president­), Yondela Nqukisa (secretary), Jennifer Soboyisi (assistant secretary and Jeradine Ramsingh (treasurer).

The portfolio committee are Kamira Odayar (director), Zandile Msomi (director), Nicolette Shezi (club service), Akhona Nkone (fund-raising) and Yandisa Mavana (public relations).
