Work­ing to­gether a win­ner

Avon Valley Gazette - - NEWS -

A WOOROLOO lo­cal says vol­un­teer­ing at Wooroloo Pri­mary School has in­creased her sense of com­mu­nity, while help­ing oth­ers.

School P&C pres­i­dent Kerry Cong­don has been in­volved with the group for six years, with the past two at the helm.

“I started when my daugh­ter was in pre-pri­mary and since then we have raised about $30,000,” she said.

“We run a ro­bot­ics pro­gram for ju­niors and se­niors, which cover all ar­eas of the cur­ricu­lum and we’ve re­booted the mu­sic pro­gram.

“We are now updating the au­dio vis­ual equip­ment and are rais­ing funds to beau­tify the school grounds.”

While part of the joy comes from see­ing the chil­dren given ac­cess to bet­ter pro­grams and equip­ment, the main ben­e­fit for Mrs Cong­don is the grow­ing sense of com­mu­nity.

“I love be­ing in­volved and see­ing what a small com­mu­nity can do when we band to­gether,” she said.

Kerry Cong­don is the Wooroloo Pri­mary School P&C pres­i­dent.
