The University School will soon launch the first EarlyAct™ Club in Trinidad & Tobago, sponsored by the Rotary Club of St. Augustine. EarlyAct™ is a school-wide club for student ages 5 to 13 years old, whose ideals are closely linked to the ideals of Rotary.
     EarlyAct™ engages students in character-building activities and prepares them for leadership roles to identify and carry out projects which benefit their school, local and global communities.  There are many EarlyAct™ Clubs located in the USA, Europe, Australia and in the Caribbean, including St.  Lucia, St Kitts and Nevis, St Maarten and in other islands.
     "The Rotary Club of St Augustine, now in its’ 50th year, looks forward to our partnership with The University School in the development of their EarlyAct™ Club," Maria Mohammed-Maharaj, President of the Rotary Club of St. Augustine. "The school’s willingness to partner with us on the establishment of the Club is a demonstration of their  mission of  being “.. devoted to the development of healthy, enlightened, self-reliant children in an environment of caring…”
     "This will enable a successful and sustainable EarlyAct™ Club that will encourage the spirit of volunteerism from an early age.”
