J Percy Page Interact Club 2017/18 Update
On Tuesday we were given an update on what the Interact club a J Percy Page High School has been doing this year. The presentation was made by three members of the current executive, all of whom are now in grade twelve, Chhavi Kausha (President), Gurleen Kaur (Vice President) and Mahmoud Asadi (Treasurer). This Interact club has been sponsored by our Rotary club for the past ten years. Their Strathcona Rotary advisor is Eric Germain and their school teacher advisor is Mrs. Huculak.  They told us that they have about fifty members in their club at present. They do quite a bit of public relations within the school promoting their club activities and it’s fundraisers.
Their club has been very busy with various fundraising and volunteer events throughout the past year. They did a fall clean up of the school grounds for which they received a five hundred dollar donation from the Emerald Society. At Halloween they sponsored a Scary Movie as their first fundraiser, which also included drinks and snacks and raised five hundred dollars for their club. They also made a volunteer trip in the fall to Ronald McDonald house to cook and serve dinner. At Christmas they sold candy cane Candy Grams which raised about three hundred dollars for their club. They made two more trips to volunteer at Ronald McDonald house in January and March and had a really good turnout for both.
For Valentines Day, they sold Roses (which were donated by Heather de Kok of our club) and raised over three hundred dollars for their club. This makes a total of sixteen hundred dollars raised so far for this Interact year. They still have another yard clean up planned for which they expect to earn another five hundred dollars. They also plan to help the school Earth Club plant trees this spring and hope to be able to volunteer at the Mustard Seed some time this spring as well. The groups that they donated their funds raised from the previous year to were Operation Smile, Polio Plus and supporting graduation attendance for a J Percy Page student who cannot afford the expense. The group has yet to decide how the funds raised this year will be used.
Our club supports the Interact group by donating funds for groceries for Ronald McDonald House and this year we also supplied the club members with blue shirts that have their club logo on them. They said that their members enjoy and wear the shirts a lot and they definitely give their club more presence within the school.  Our club is also sponsoring two of their members (Mahmoud and Gurleen) to attend RYLE in early May, and one member (Chhavi) to attend the Rotary Adventures in Citizenship program in Ottawa this spring. They said that they have really appreciated being able to be part of the Rotary community and that it has given them a chance have fun, help others, gain new experiences, learn leadership skills, and have the opportunity to be more involved in their community.

JPP Interactors in action at RMH
Rotary Interact Club of J. Percy Page High School Provide The RMH Home For Dinner With An Italian Feast & a Danish Twist
The Rotary Interact Club of J. Percy High School made their third trip of the school year to Ronald McDonald House for the Home For Dinner Program. They served up dinner for 100 people. An Italian feast of meat and vegetarian lasagna’s , dinner buns, veggie platters, potato salad, fruit plates, juice beverages, and a lovely Easter cake.
The large contingent of Interactors did a great job of preparing, serving, and cleaning up the dinner. In addition, they were busy, including they had a tour of RMH, cleaned, and artistically decorated paper lunch bags for the RMH Lunch Program, while meeting the resident families and staff.
The Danish Twist was not the dessert, it was Andreas , our favourite Rotary Exchange student from Denmark. He is currently being hosted by the Downtown Edmonton Rotary Club. He is attending grade 11 at McNally High School, is a Rotary Interact member at Victoria Composite High School, and has been very active in our Rotary District, including being the guest speaker at a lunch meeting of the Rotary Club of Edmonton Strathcona. Andreas will be the guest speaker at the Rotary Interact Club lunch meeting on Thursday April 19th.
Thanks to our J. Percy Page Teacher Rep, Karen, and newcomer Tuso, the Social Studies teacher who wants to help with the Rotary Interact Club. Also thanks to our great Rotary Drivers, Hans Granholm, Rose Marie Basaraba, Vi Hughes, Dennis Freeman, and Ken Germain.
The Ronald McDonald House residents, out of town families who have sick children receiving major medical care in Edmonton were very grateful, and send a special warm thank you to everyone who helped make this first day of spring special.
Rotary Best Regards,
Eric Germain

Patrick Gibson, New Hope School Fundraising Presentation

New Hope School

Our Rotary group has partnered in a joint venture with the Rotary Club of Pretoria to help raise funds for the New Hope School in Pretoria. Patrick Gibson has put together a presentation that he will be making to the other rotary clubs in our area to encourage them to help us with this venture. Our goal is to put enough funding in place for us to be able to apply for a Rotary International matching grant.
Patrick gave us the same presentation he will be making to other local rotary groups. It included a short introduction on the New Hope School, followed by a video that has been prepared by the New Hope School. The New Hope School has been one of the projects of our club for some years now, and most of our members are well aware of the work they do in schooling for handicapped children in the Pretoria area. They provide many services above and beyond the usual schooling activities, such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and many others, as needed by their students.
They receive only basic funding from the local government, so must fundraise to provide these other services. Some of the specific projects our funds could be used for would be a specialised playground, or programs to provide technical skills such as kitchen skills, nail and hair salon skills and sewing skills.  Patrick has also put together a ‘Go Fund Me’ page on the web, on which people can get more information, view the video and make contributions. We will also be adding a link on our Rotary web page to this site.
