New Projects Room for Marulan Public School
Marulan Public School have utilised a Veolia Mulwaree Trust grant of $15,000 to upgrade a disused storeroom into a multi purpose project room that caters to a broad range of activities including after school care, breakfast club, playgroup and kitchen/garden projects.
The multi purpose room has enabled Marulan Public School to support local families through the use of the space as a community centre which provides a permanent venue for Marulan playgroup and other community activities.
Principal of Marulan Public School, Ms Marianne Powles said “the new projects room is a much needed and welcome addition to our school. Breakfast club was commenced in the room as soon as it was completed and it is now the home of our new canteen. We are able to offer before and after school care for students and hold afternoon art, music, cooking, craft and movie club activities. The new room is not only providing a valuable service to the school but also the wider Marulan community, as the room is available in the evenings for meditation classes for anyone interested”.
Trustee, Mr Geoff Kettle was pleased to officially open the project room along with Ms Powles and student leaders in July 2016. Ms Powles said “we are extremely grateful for the support provided by the Veolia Mulwaree Trust for this important project.”
The Veolia Mulwaree Trust is very proud to support Marulan Public School in creating a new projects room and wishes students, staff and the Marulan community many years of productive use from this valuable project.
