SHEDWORKS COMMUNITY SERVICE
More than 4000 new Australian native plants will “beautify” one of the main entrances into Bunbury when students from our Shedworks Program finish this labour-intensive
project. Shedworks students are set to finish stage three of landscaping work at Wally Crowd Reserve along Koombana Drive. The students joined forces with Bunbury City Council
for the project, which involved planting 4300 plants, re-mulching and digging up weeds in the area. City of Bunbury landscape and open space manager Kristy Tillett said the
project was a "massive" job for the students and provided them with skills that would work in their favour when going for employment in the future.
"They've worked really hard and it's great work experience for them," Ms Tillett said. Shedworks Program Coordinator, Paul McKenzie said the project was among a number of projects the
students were involved in and would be invaluable for their future. "This kind of work in particular proves to them they can sustain effort and they can succeed," Mr McKenzie said. "It goes down
on their resume as a community service, which is something employers favour and it gives the students an edge. The council has been very supportive and keeps us on the radar."
A big congratulations to Ky Fisher who was recently awarded the Community Achiever of the Year from South West Academy of Sports. After that, Ky was nominated into WA
Young Community Achiever of the Year. The awards night was held in Perth and although Ky didn't make the finals he was awarded a certificate.
Both awards recognise his contribution and commitment to hockey (state & local), commitment to the BEST program at Bunbury Senior High School and also recognising his dedication
to coaching and empowering younger club members.
A team of Bunbury Senior High School students get the opportunity to travel to the Supreme Court in Perth to participate in the Mock Trial competition. Students are able to practice public
debating skills and work with members of the legal profession. The first team beat Morley Senior High School and the second team narrowly lost to John Curtin College of
the Arts. Bunbury Senior High School would like to thank the Law Society for organising this wonderful competition.
