ONE hun­dred peo­ple at­tended the of­fi­cial un­veil­ing of Whorouly Pri­mary School’s “Buy a Brick” com­mem­o­ra­tive Fundrais­ing Project last Wednes­day.

Ex­actly 188 en­graved bricks were sold which equates to a mas­sive 50 per cent of Whorouly’s pop­u­la­tion of 376.

Past and present stu­dents sup­ported the ini­tia­tive with all pro­ceeds go­ing back into the school to be used for stu­dent equip­ment. McPher­sons Earth­mov­ing, Mac McPher­son and Maw­son’s each do­nated their time, prod­uct and ma­chin­ery for the ini­ta­tive.

The un­veil­ing was fol­lowed by a cel­e­bra­tion with drinks and din­ner at the Pri­mary School.
