Northshore kids cut out for con­struc­tion

North Coast Times - - NEWS -

ALKIMOS chil­dren be­came the mas­ter­minds and builders be­hind a card­board com­mu­nity con­structed at Northshore Chris­tian Gram­mar School re­cently.

The card­board minic­ity, part of Peet’s Build Your Com­mu­nity event, came to life with kids cre­at­ing apart­ment build­ings, a hospi­tal with a he­li­copter pad and a bus.

Shore­haven’s Wa­ter­front Park also made an ap­pear­ance along with The Shore Cafe, the Alkimos Ship­wreck and the oval lo­cated in The Rise precinct of the es­tate. Many chil­dren also con­structed their own home.

School prin­ci­pal Stu­art Chisholm said it was great to watch the Shore­haven com­mu­nity recre­ated by “our young lead­ers of to­mor­row”.

“It was amaz­ing to see the kids get so creative and re­ally fo­cus on this pro­ject,” he said.

“The kids re­ally took own­er­ship of their own com­mu­nity and homes and the fi­nal prod­uct looked just like Shore­haven, with the ad­di­tion of a hospi­tal and he­li­copter pad.”

Fe­niel and Parth Shah recre­ated their home out of card­board near the oval in The Rise precinct.
