Coles team trans­forms school grounds

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

BELMONT Pri­mary School stu­dents have a fan­tas­tic new-look school­yard thanks to the hard work of lo­cal Coles team mem­bers who pitched in to re­vamp the grounds re­cently.

Team mem­bers from the Coles su­per­mar­ket in Victoria Park rolled up their sleeves to help transform the gar­dens and level the carpark en­trance to the school as part of its Help­ing Hands pro­gram.

Coles Victoria Park store man­ager John Chantler said team mem­bers were ex­cited to be part of such an im­por­tant lo­cal pro­gram.

Belmont Pri­mary School prin­ci­pal Stephanne Dann said the help could not have come at a bet­ter time for the school.

“Our gar­dener has been off work for a cou­ple of months now and we haven’t been able to get a re­lief gar­dener in the mean­time,” she said.

“Be­ing lo­cated on a busy high­way, the front of the school was look­ing very over­run and un­tidy.

“The work that the team did has made a fan­tas­tic im­prove­ment, with the gar­dens now re­flect­ing what a great school Belmont Pri­mary School is.

“On be­half of ev­ery­one at Belmont Pri­mary School, I would like to thank the Coles team at Victoria Park for trans­form­ing our grounds into some­thing the whole school com­mu­nity can en­joy.”

Coles Help­ing Hands vol­un­teers Kieran Post, Karl Klemm, Luke Goadsby, Vi­nay Shukla and Muhammed Adil with Belmont pri­mary stu­dents Juo, Jin­tong, Ma­son and Har­ley.
