Interact visit to Musha weVana
On Thursday 28th February the Interact club visited the local orphanage, Musha weVana. We were welcomed by the ecstatic faces of the little ones; all geared and ready to have fun with the Interact members. The afternoon was well spent. This was the first visit to Musha weVana for new Interact members which challenged them to socialize and interact with children of different ages. Stories were shared, songs were sung and friendships were made. The fine afternoon was rounded off by the Interact board members giving clothes and school shoes to the children; they were very grateful for this kind gesture. The Interact Club thanks all who donated clothing as the children at Musha weVana really appreciated it.

Leo Visit to St Francis
On Monday 4th March, the Peterhouse Leo Club had the opportunity to visit St Francis School. As a club we were able to supply the school with items of stationery. We all took part in various games and activities with the children and had an amazing time interacting with all of them.

Unfortunately, we did not spend much time at St Francis, and it is definitely in our future plans to spend another eventful afternoon with them where we would provide drinks and food for all the children and get to know, as well as build relationships with them all.

As a club we are truly grateful to everyone who made this visit possible, we believe that as a team, if we all work together we truly will fulfil our motto - “We Serve”.
