The vision of the service pillar of Hermanus High School’s Interact Club is to develop a sense of caring for fellow citizens, especially those impacted by socio-economic challenges in their communities. In order to make a difference, Interact learners sold blue ribbons in aid of the Overberg Wheelchair Association (OWA) during the month of May. On Friday, teachers of the service pillar, led by Mrs Wiegman, handed over the funds that were raised, along with two boxes of bread tags and bottle caps collected by the Interact learners, to Mr Edwin Brooks of the OWC. “Collecting bread tags and bottle tops to enable us to provide wheelchairs for the disabled not only changes the lives of people in need, but also keeps these plastic products out of the landfill which in turn helps to preserve our environment,” said a grateful Edwin.
