Children and headmistress all very excited and happy with their new colour scheme, curtains and mattresses

We currently support 4 pre-schools – 3 in Stanford, the other on an Eco farm nearby. During visits to these pre-schools it soon became evident that although they were all functioning well and were fairly well equipped, there was one which simply begged for some brightening up. A garage had been converted into the “Little Angels” Pre-School but the walls were very dull and uninspiring, as were the curtains. The children were having their daily naps on old pillows and cushions in various shapes and sizes. Last year we were able to provide the school with some carpeting which added a bit of warmth during the cold and wet winter months. With the funds provided through the Outreach Grant we were able to re-paint the entire classroom and sick bay, provide new curtaining, purchase new mattresses and make new slip covers for the mattresses.

"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."
