The Rotary Club of Durbanville have recently completed an excellent educational project through the Rotary Claremont District 9350 Outreach Programme funding for 2016/17. Top Student Achievers at 9 of the local Durbanville Farm Schools (from the 3 highest grades), received prize giving awards of Books & Backpacks from Rotary Durbanville. Pictured here are Durbanville Rotarians at Prize Giving Ceremonies at 3 of the schools – Joostenberg, Attie Van Wyk, & Valley Schools. The delighted students were encouraged by the rewards they received for all their hard academic work. Most of the students are from underprivileged homes

How special it is for Rotarians, to share in these educational success stories with students, principals, teachers and proud parents.

Rotary Claremont are proud to be part of this much needed community assistance. Well Done Rotary Durbanville!

"Past President Peter Trebble joined Rotary Claremont in late 2007. Peter has served as Club Secretary, President Elect and as Club President 2011/12. Peter has also served on the District 9350 Public Relations Committee for 5 years. Peter’s theme for Rotary Claremont for 2011/12 was ‘Fun with a Purpose’ emphasizing that if Rotarians have fun it enables them to give more of themselves in “service above self”. Peter’s particular Rotary vision is to encourage Rotary membership to grow world-wide. The dream and task is for enthusiastic young Rotarians to join our organisation and to be mentored by much respected senior Rotarians. Currently, Peter’s drive for Rotary Claremont is to procure Corporate Partnership Funding and he has successfully facilitated the major partnership that has been struck between the Lewis Group and Rotary Claremont for additional funding to strengthen the Club’s flagship “Injongo” Project. The pilot of this major Educare Project was implemented as part of the current Rotary Claremont 3/5 Year Strategic Plan which was launched during Peter’s year as Club President 2011/12. Peter’s other focus is to facilitate Rotary Claremont’s Outreach Program for smaller District 9350 clubs. During 2013/14 ten clubs were involved in meaningful projects, after having received funding directly from Rotary Claremont. Peter’s personal Community Service Projects have centred around assistance to Safe Havens and Children’s Homes for abused and abandoned infants and little ones."
