The EIS interact club has been serving and giving back to the community since its inception by sponsoring activities such as the Run for Hope which primary objective is to raise funds for the Tunku Laksamana Johor Cancer Foundation ("Foundation")

Excelsior International School's Interact Club is a service club for students ages 12 - 18 whose primary purpose is to give students a chance to make a difference in the world. EIS Interact club is sponsored by Rotary Club Johor Bahru Sentral. Rotary International is an international service organisation whose stated human rights purpose is to bring together business and professional leaders in order to provide humanitarian services, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and to advance goodwill and peace around the world.

There are 34,282 member clubs worldwide. 1.2 Million Individuals called Rotarians have joined these clubs.

This year, as part of our community service program, EIS Interact Club in support of Rotary Club Johor Bahru Sentral will be launched the "Plant a Tree Campaign" which is meant to instill an environment loving culture among our youths. This project involves Interact Club members and primary students from the Excelsior International School, and 16 orphans from the SHAFAR Welfare Organisation (Pertubuhan Kebajikan Shafar), Johor Bahru.

The launch was held on the 23rd September 2016 by His Highness Tunku Idris Iskandar Ibni Sultan Ibrahim, Tunku Temenggong Johor during the Rotary Club Johor Bahru Sentral 5th Installation Dinner at Doubletree, by Hilton, Johor Bahru, Johor. EIS staff and students were in attendance where EIS Interact Club president Lim Ee Lyn helped launch the event. In addition to launching the project EIS also had both primary and secondary students perform a song for all in attendance.

The campaign is aimed to be the biggest community tree-planting and nature care event in Johor. Coordinated by Rotary Club Johor Bahru Sentral and proudly sponsored by Asia Plantation Capital, these are special days for all to help out by planting and caring for native trees and shrubs to improve the environment in which they live in.

EIS is proud that students from our school in both our Primary section and students from our Interact club are teaming up with students from Shafar orphanage to participate in this important community service endeavour.
