Mandurah Coastal Times - - NEWS -

OCEAN Road Pri­mary School at Dawesville was a hub of ac­tiv­ity on Fri­day .

The City of Man­durah kicked off de­vel­op­ment of the Ocean Road clu­b­room on the school oval with a sod-turn­ing cer­e­mony and the NRL an­nounced it would con­trib­ute $200,000 to­wards the fa­cil­ity.

NRL WA gen­eral man­ager John Sack­son said the con­tri­bu­tion would help the City com­plete its vi­sion.

He said the clu­b­room would form the foun­da­tion of a ro­bust and re­silient Man­durah Storm.

Con­struc­tion starts in a cou­ple of months and will take about nine months to com­plete.

Stu­dents also held a special Dress as a Poppy Re­mem­brance Day fundraiser among staff and stu­dents.

All funds raised went to­wards Veter­ans 360, a char­ity that sup­ports home­less veter­ans.

Years 3 and 4 were in­tro­duced to sculp­tur­ing by Dwellingup artist Pa­tri­cia Hines who worked one on one with stu­dents mak­ing clay an­i­mals.
