The Interact Club helps to give students a broader picture of the community and the environment that is around them with the ultimate aim to contribute to a better society.

“Rotary is about service over self. It’s about helping the community, that’s what we try to do with the class here in Mounthawk,” said Rotary Club representative Grace O’Donnell.

With the Interact Club, the students are brought out of the classroom and pitch in with the Tralee Tidy Towns and other organisation in the town. The club are also involved in raising money for charity.

“The Interact Club, contributes to developing the overall person and encourages good citizenship,” said Mayor of Tralee, Jim Finucane,
