Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

HAMIL­TON Se­nior High School ed­u­ca­tion sup­port stu­dents were ex­cited to at­tend a wood­work­ing work­shop at Bun­nings Bi­bra Lake re­cently.

As part of its com­mu­nity out­reach pro­gram, the school has been ar­rang­ing for stu­dents to at­tend in-store D.I.Y. work­shops for a few years.

Seven Year 9 and 10 stu­dents at­tended the work­shop, mak­ing painted serving trays with ac­tiv­i­ties or­gan­iser Doris Zu­vela.

Ryan Read (15) said he re­ally en­joyed the day.

“Bun­nings is a re­ally amaz­ing place,” he said.

“I like the peo­ple, they are re­ally nice and they are al­ways here if you need them for help.”

Bun­nings Bi­bra Lake com­plex man­ager Brien Mitchell said the re­la­tion­ship staff have built with Hamil­ton’s stu­dents has been truly re­ward­ing.

“We are in­volved in the com­mu­nity a lot, of­fer­ing work­shops about once month for lo­cal schools,” Mr Mitchell said.

“We love the fact that stu­dents can come in be­cause they get a chance to be in­volved in a range of ac­tiv­i­ties that they pos­si­bly wouldn’t get to do at school.”

Hamil­ton SHS stu­dents have pre­vi­ously taken part in D.I.Y. work­shops in­clud­ing can­vas paint­ings, tool­box con­struc­tion and pic­ture frame and trea­sure box build­ing.
