Col­lege stu­dents build day-care fea­ture

Narrogin Observer - - Front Page - Laura Gru­bisa

Nar­ro­gin Agri­cul­tural Col­lege stu­dents in­stalled a tim­ber deck they had been work­ing on at Nar­ro­gin Re­gional Day Care last Fri­day.

Cer­tifi­cate II Con­struc­tion Path­ways stu­dents were thrilled to be able to as­sist the day care and help im­prove their play­ground fa­cil­i­ties so the chil­dren could con­tinue to en­joy play­ing in a safe en­vi­ron­ment.

Head of trades Paul Dyson be­lieves one of the great­est lessons in life is how good it feels to give some­thing back to the com­mu­nity and give up your time for oth­ers.

“The great­est lessons here are not ac­tu­ally in con­struc­tion; they are in com­mu­nity en­gage­ment and vol­un­teer­ing your time and ex­per­tise for oth­ers, of which the Agri­cul­tural Col­lege is grate­ful for the op­por­tu­nity to be in­volved in,” he said.

Year 11 stu­dent Liam Sweeney, who helped con­struct the deck, said he and the other stu­dents hoped the chil­dren at the day care cen­tre en­joyed their new deck and their new safe and fun play en­vi­ron­ment.
