BIKIES IN BRAWL
Police warn bad behaviour not welcome on the Tweed:
STUDENTS at Murwillumbah East Primary School are being encouraged to sit and talk about their problems with a buddy and thanks to the Tweed Valley Woodcrafters, that’s about to become a whole lot easier.
The group was approached by the school’s P and C to follow the NSW Department of Education’s policy of making schools a safe place to learn and play. To comply with the policy, classroom discussions were held across all grades and it was decided that “buddy benches” should be provided within the school grounds, providing “safety retreats” where pupils encountering some of the difficulties of adjusting to school life, could go.
Having completed the three benches, the Tweed Valley Woodcrafters will soon deliver their work to the school where they will be painted by the students.
The handicraft of the Tweed Valley Woodcrafters will also be on exhibition at their shed on the Murwillumbah Showgrounds on Sunday, July 1 when they hold a free joint exhibition with the Richmond woodcrafters from 9am to 4pm.
