The men have been welcomed into the woodwork and metalwork classrooms of Como Secondary College.

Manning Senior Centre president Robert Burton said the handymen were hoping to offer time to make objects for the school.

‘We are also looking at mentoring the students as part of the Monday afternoon activity,’ he said.

Mr Burton said the Manning Men’s Shed was expected to be built within the next 12 to 18 months.

He said the mentoring program could continue after their men’s shed was built.

‘We are mainly doing woodwork at the school, but we will continue and do some metalwork too,’ he said.
