Posted by | Nov 11, 2019 |

The Inner Wheel Club of Butterworth which held its Charter Night on 29th June 2019, has started its community service projects by initiating tuition classes for primary school children staying at the PPR Desa Wawasan Flats in Bukit Mertajam. On 2nd November 2019, a party cum registration exercise was held from 2.30 to 6.30pm in conjunction with Children’s Day Celebrations.

The guest of honour was the Honourable Penang State Executive Councillor and State Assemblywoman for Padang Lalang Mdm Chong Eng whose office sponsored the event. Food for High tea was served to all attendees and a clown engaged to entertain the children. Goody bags sponsored by IWC Butterworth were distributed.

Charter President Lucy Barrock of IWC Butterworth in her address spoke about Inner Wheel Clubs’ history, achievements and objectives of fostering friendship among members whilst serving the local community. Mdm Chong Eng reminded all present that education is the stepping stone to success and every child had the right to an education.

A majority of the members of IWC Butterworth are trained teachers. They will be conducting tuition classes on a rotational basis every Saturday from 4-6pm. Worksheets will be handed out and a soft approach employed to engage the children to learn through songs, music and dance. The club is committed to keeping this as a long term project.
