Kiara gets helping hands
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”.
