The Port Pirie interact Club, based at John Pirie Secondary School, is a younger version of the Rotary Club of Port Pirie.

Interact members Jordon Beveridge, Muadz Ilcham, Amber Wasley and Kyah Dienhoff prepared the meal of sausages and steak, raising money for their work along the way.

Each member outlined their school activities and involvement with the club and Student Voice and was welcomed by the Rotarians.

They were accompanied by teacher Tara Baron and principal Roger Nottage.

So far this year, the teenagers raised money for the 40-Hour Famine and visited a nursing home.

The barbecue was at the Rotary shed at the airport.

Interact clubs bring together young people aged from 12 to 18 to develop leadership skills while discovering the power of “service above self”. They connect with leaders in the community and around the world to take action to make a difference, discover new cultures and promote international understanding, have fun and make new friends from around the world.

The clubs organise at least two projects every year, one that helps their school or community and one that fosters international understanding. There are 20,372 clubs, 468,556 Interactors and 159 countries with clubs.
