Interact is not only a club, but an opportunity for girls to give back and help the less fortunate. Interact projects enable our enthusiastic Danville Interactors to gain important lifeskills as they initiate and manage community projects that add value to the lives of young people in our area.
Danville participates in several beach clean-ups in conjunction with KZN Beach Clean-Up.
By participating in these initiatives, we are helping to preserve the ocean’s biodiversity. The school has participated in the International Coastal Clean-up since 2003. More recently, locally organised clean-ups organised by the La Lucia Mall management company have also been supported.
We are committed to working locally, together with KZN Beach Clean-Up, to improve the quality of our oceans and waterways. In this way we make them safer for the creatures that inhabit them as well as for the community, thereby contributing towards a sustainable future.
The Bread Buddies programme is co-ordinated by the DOMINO FOUNDATION and enthusiastically supported on Thursdays by the Danville girls.
Interact Club make the sandwiches at break using the bread and peanut butter that has been donated by the girls for that week. These are then distributed by the DOMINO FOUNDATION to needy schools in the community.
Easter Egg Collection
As the Easter festivities draw near, Easter eggs are collected for distribution by Bread Buddies.
On the Thursday before Easter, the Interact team packs an Easter egg with every sandwich that they make during bread buddies. These are then distributed by the DOMINO FOUNDATION to needy schools in the area.
Christmas Shoebox Drive
This annual drive to provide disadvantaged children with a much treasured Christmas present begins as a Grade 10 community project where each girl puts together a Christmas shoe box gift . The project is then driven by Interact who motivate the rest of the school to donate boxes, wrapping paper and gifts. Approximately 400 boxes are delivered to the excited recipients after a special party where the Danville girls play “Father Christmas”.
In term two the whole school participates in REACH FOR A DREAM’s annual Slipper Day. Girls pay R10 in order to wear their slippers and the money raised goes towards a fund for children with life-threatening illnesses.
Each year Interact manages a stationery drive, collecting unwanted stationery from the Danville community to donate to the Learn Project.
