School a hive of activity for big clean-up
Fortescue Metals Group’s fifth annual working bee, held in Roebourne last weekend, brought together almost 150 volunteers to make over Roebourne District High School.
Fortescue employees and their families, teachers, parents and students from the school, Australian hockey players, local community members and prisoners on supervised release from Roebourne Regional Prison rolled up their sleeves to take part in the event.
Fortescue chief executive Nev Power said he was excited to be back in Roebourne and getting his hands dirty for a great cause.
“Our annual working bee in Roebourne is always a highlight for me,” he said.
It’s a demonstration of our commitment to building stronger communities by providing a hand up, rather than a handout.”
Roebourne District High School principal David Paine said the school community was grateful for Fortescue’s ongoing support.
“The annual Fortescue working bee helps the school continue to foster a positive and inviting learning environment,” he said.
