PP Wing Leung, Chair, Working Group on Rotary Reaching Out to Primary

One of the core values of Rotary is to serve. To make sure Rotary has regular and systematic service to the youth, programmes like rotaract and interact clubs, RYLA, RAAS and Youth Exchange have been launched.

But there is a missing link: the primary. How may Rotary extend its services to this ignored yet significant sector?

DG Eric has advised that a Working Group on Reaching Out to the Primary should be set up under the Youth Services Committee.

Having several rounds of virtual meetings with Clubs with great projects for primary students, uniform groups, school representatives and parents, the following are proposed, modelling on the existing mode of interact:

Objectives To serve unmet needs of primary, including students, teachers and schools.

Core Values

To broaden horizon of primary students with international perspectives, career development, community service, hopefully to enable students possess positive attitude, holistic view and an all-rounder character.


  • To broaden horizon
  • To have minimum burden on the part of schools/teachers
  • To provide funny, attractive activities
  • To foster creative thinking
  • Rotarians-rotaractors-interactors join hands
  • Pool up resources (clubs, district and the public)
Stages of Services Development
  1. A pilot run will be attempted (see below for details).
  2. A full assessment after the pilot run.
  3. Full scale rotary service to primary by District 3450 if a related resolution is approved.
  4. Rotaract flagship project if so adopted by rotaractors.
  5. A full report to Rotary International.
