Kensington Secondary and Collier Primary schools partner on Mulch and Manure Drive

TWO local schools have partnered to embark on a hands-on program that will benefit the wider community.

The partnership between Kensington Secondary and Collier Primary schools involves the students working cohesively for the primary schools’ Mulch and Manure Drive.

Kensington students fold and assemble the pamphlets, which Collier students then distribute amongst the community.

The drive is a P&C fundraiser where residents in Como, Kensington, South Perth and Waterford can purchase manure, mulch, potting mix and soil conditioner to be home delivered.

Kensington Secondary School teacher Mandy Royce said the funds raised would go to playground revitalisation program and pay for curriculum extensive programs for students.

“This is the first year of the partnership and hopefully the beginning of more to come,” Ms Royce said.

“It’s excellent to see two schools within the community coming together for the benefit of both.”

The project fits with Kensington Secondary’s Work Skills Program, which helps students learn necessary workforce skills to help them engage in selected employment after graduating.
