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.
