"On Tuesday the 20th June Mrs Smith, Nicole Doherty (Student Government Prime Minister), Jade Christou (Student Government Deputy Minister) and myself travelled to Shepparton to the Official Opening of the New Bunnnings store and Community Project Recognition morning.
Sheppartons Complex Manager Paul Connaughton and store operations General Manager Debbie Poole spoke about the new and improved Bunnings site. The day was represented by numerous Bunnings staff, Community members and local shire. We all enjoyed a lovely breakfast to start the day. Tom Lonergan and Paul officially opened the site.
Paula Ryan interviewed Tom Lonergan (Geelong footballer) and asked him about his experiences on the field, and particually getting over his potentially career-ending kidney injury. Tom was very interesting to listen to.
The Three Major Community Projects were:
Merrigum Primary School - Completion of the "Avenue of Honour".
Shepparton Scout Hall - New kitchen
Shepparton High School - Vegetable gardens.
We were presented with photgraphs in a lovely frame with plaque of our day completing the Avenue of Honour area. This will be displayed in the entrance foyer of our school.
Merrigum Primary School would like to thank Bunnings for their kind invitation to this event, it was most enjoyable.
