Rotaractors opened World Rotaract Week 2018 today under the theme ‘Restoring the Environment’ as some 50 representatives came together to beautify the Ellerton Primary School and add another garden.
Assistant District 1730 Rotartact representative Keishmar Hurdle told
“We came to Ellerton Primary School today because one of our rotaractors wanted to do a community service activity,” Hurdle said.
Joined by almost 20 children from the school, the group planted tomatoes, kale, christophine and eggplant, while cleaning up the school.
“We are also reusing tires which may have ended up in the landfill or gully and using them instead of plant pots, we are painting the tires with environmentally friendly paint and in fact most of the materials we are using today are environmentally friendly,” Hurdle said.
The week of activities continue with a social media campaign on Tuesday encouraging persons to wear green in support of the go green initiative. (KH)]]>
