We were invited to Scotsburn Primary School to officially open the new kitchen and share morning tea made by the students. Directors Ian Corcoran and Debbie Rybicki spoke to the students about why we supported their kitchen refurbishment and what we hope it will achieve.
Our Community Bank jumped on board the project to ensure children at Scotsburn have modern and safe tools to participate in the sustainable food program (paddock to plate concept), plus learn life-long skills in the kitchen.
The new facilities are housed in a historic 1879 building with new cabinetry making it fresh, light, bright and practical. Campus Principal Jarrod Morgan said “we’re working towards opening a servery-style canteen at the side of the building for students to operate, manage and run”.
And is exactly the sort of funding we love to see work. We've funded the kitchen refurbishment; yet the school will now build on this new asset, think innovatively and generate sustainable revenue. It brings a smile to our faces when we kick start sustainable circulatory principles for the betterment of our community. Well done Scotsburn Primary School.
