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.
