WOODVALE Secondary College students are using their studies to create gifts for children in the community.

As part of woodwork classes, Year 11 students are producing wooden toys including rocking horses and model planes and trucks to donate to various groups. So far, toys have been given to the Autism Association of WA in Shenton Park, Fremantle and Midland and the Beldon Primary School Education Support Centre.

Teacher John Young said the woodwork course focussed on reducing, reusing and recycling.

“Students enjoy producing toys and working in woodwork in such a positive learning environment which instils a sense of community and giving in the students,” he said.

Organisations that would like wooden toys donated or have materials to donate, can call 9309 0808.
