The Stella Clavisque Club is the oldest Mauritian Club in Australia. It was founded in 1968 to offer pecuniary assistance and moral support to the Mauritians who were coming to make Melbourne their new home. Though the needs and priorities of Mauritians who have subsequently settled in Melbourne have changed, the club has maintained its original purpose as encapsulated in the club’s mission statement: "Service to the community and the Mauritian people."
Over the years, the SCC has contributed to a wide variety of deserving causes here and overseas and made contributions to appeals following natural disasters such as bushfires, floods, cyclones...
The newsletter which is posted to all members on a quarterly basis, has been an invaluable means of communication, providing to club members information on a wide variety of concerns and subjects of interest.
In 2006, the Stella Clavisque Club received an Award for Excellence in Multicultural Affairs from the Victorian Government in recognition of its continued contribution to the community.
The affairs of the club are managed
by a committee of 10 members
which has full control over all the club's activities.
