Kiara gets help­ing hands

Eastern Reporter - - Let's Eat -

A GROUP of 15 ac­coun­tants swapped their suits for paint­brushes to help Kiara Col­lege trans­form its li­brary at a vol­un­teer­ing day last week.

Ac­count­ing firm EY held its an­nual EY Care Day across 15 WA schools in­clud­ing Kiara on Novem­ber 3, when staff teamed up with stu­dents to paint the out­side of the li­brary.

Prin­ci­pal Richard Kar­dol said the col­lege hoped to build a greater net­work and more op­por­tu­ni­ties with EY be­yond vol­un­teer days.

“Our li­brary is go­ing through a large in­fra­struc­ture re­build in­side bring­ing it up to a mod­ern hub of com­mu­ni­ca­tion, in­ves­ti­ga­tion and re­search,” he said.

Mr Kar­dol said much work had been done in­side, but the school needed help with the ex­te­rior.

EY senior as­so­ciate Ja­cob Olsen said EY Care Day pro­vided sup­port to dis­ad­van­taged schools and com­mu­ni­ties and con­trib­uted to the firm’s fo­cus of build­ing a “bet­ter work­ing world”.

Kiara Col­lege Year 9 stu­dent Cal­lias Sie­vuhr, EY senior as­so­ci­ates Evelina Nord­holm and Ja­cob Olsen, and Year 9 stu­dent Sa­muel Mon­delly.
