Lions happy to help

Joondalup Times - - NEWS -

WAN­NEROO Lions Club part­nered with Hock­ing Pri­mary School last term for their cen­ten­nial project.

Club mem­bers helped re­vamp the early child­hood play­ground area for its com­mu­nity project to cel­e­brate 100 years of Lions clubs help­ing the com­mu­nity.

They do­nated time, ma­te­ri­als and funds to up­grade the play­ground which com­ple­ments the new na­ture play­ground.

Prin­ci­pal Steve Dick­son said the vol­un­teers helped early child­hood staff cre­ate a more vi­brant area for the young stu­dents where they could de­velop friend­ships.

“It pro­vides an amaz­ing op­por­tu­nity for kids to be cre­ative and imag­i­na­tive in their play,” he said. “The Lions pro­vided re­sources and man­power to sup­port staff and par­ent vol­un­teers build bright colour­ful play struc­tures; they built cars out of pack­ing crates.”

Mr Dick­son said the Lions par­tic­i­pated in a busy bee at the school be­fore the na­ture play­ground in­stal­la­tion fin­ished in Septem­ber.
