IN THE LAST year there have been many changes taking place at Captains Flat Public School: from creating a new computer lab, to remarking the lines on our playgrounds, but the most recent change has seen the doubling of the learning space for half of our students.
We were lucky enough to receive a grant from Veolia Mulwaree Trust to extend our 3/4/5/6 class room. The work begun a few weeks ago and once the retractable door is installed in coming weeks the students of that class will have so much more space to learn and explore in.
We are a small school in a small community, and it often feels like we are overlooked when it comes to school improvements, but the Veolia Mulwaree Trust along with businesses in our local area saw the need to modify the space and supported us in our efforts to make improvements to the school and for our kids.
The 39 children that currently attend Captains Flat Public School and the many more students that will attend the school in coming years will benefit from these changes in ways we cannot yet measure. But the P&C, staff, and community would like to acknowledge Veolia Mulwaree Trust for providing the funds to achieve something that could not otherwise have been done.
