Robe Football Club and Men's shed help Robe Primary School

Two local organisations came together over the weekend to help out Robe Primary School through a working bee that involved fixing the school oval.

The school has recently had a bore and new automatic watering system installed over the Christmas break.

The Robe Football Club and the Robe Men’s Shed helped fill in the holes and top soil it, ensuring that everything can operate efficiently by the time school goes back.

The two organisations and parent volunteers from Robe Primary School went to the oval at 9am on Saturday to start work, with each member assisting the volunteers with various tasks.

Robe Primary School are aiming to complete the project before the start of term 1.

The football club and men’s shed have both been busy over the last year giving back to the community through volunteer work, helping fellow clubs and organisations to complete their projects.

Robe Primary School principal Chris McLay, Adrian Johns from Robe Plumbing and Stephen Gibbons from SE Excavations have been working on the project this summer.

Parent organiser Filly Robertson and vice-principal Kate Schubert have put in a lot of time and effort into bringing the volunteers together, ensuring everyone works as a collective to complete the tasks at hand.
