MANY hands made light work at Burrendah Primary School last week, when volunteers descended to paint, plant and help out where needed.

The school was one of 134 worthwhile causes that received a helping hand from Lendlease employees as part of its annual Community Day.

In September each year the workers roll up their sleeves to help alongside their colleagues, community partners, family and suppliers to provide much-needed community support.

About 20 volunteers helped spruce up the school.

Burrendah PrimarySchool principal Phil Bradshaw said it was great to get a bit of help.

“We believe it is important to develop close relationships with families and businesses in our community, and being involved in this program is a great way to do that,” Mr Bradshaw said.

“The work will make our school a more attractive place in which to learn, so we are looking forward to seeing the end result.”
