Part­ner­ship reaps re­wards

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

work­ing to­gether for the pri­mary school’s Mulch and Ma­nure Drive.

Kens­ing­ton stu­dents fold and assem­ble pam­phlets, which Col­lier stu­dents then dis­trib­ute in the com­mu­nity.

The drive is a P&C fundraiser where res­i­dents in Como, Kens­ing­ton, South Perth and Wa­ter­ford can pur­chase ma­nure, mulch, pot­ting mix and soil con­di­tioner to be home-de­liv­ered.

Kens­ing­ton Sec­ondary School teacher Mandy Royce said funds raised would be used for a play­ground re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion pro­gram and pay for cur­ricu­lum ex­ten­sion pro­grams for stu­dents.

“This is the first year of the part­ner­ship and hope­fully the be­gin­ning of more to come,” Ms Royce said.

“It’s ex­cel­lent to see two schools in the com­mu­nity com­ing to­gether for the ben­e­fit of both.”

The project fits with Kens­ing­ton Sec­ondary’s Work Skills Pro­gram, which helps stu­dents learn skills to help them find em­ploy­ment after grad­u­at­ing.
