NRL kicks in handy sum for clubroom
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.
