Having extended the new toilet/kitchen building, ABC’s and Rice now has a workshop to be proud of. It was put together by Peter Raynes and fitted out with all types of tools, mostly through generous donations and some brought over from various countries, incurring serious excess baggage charges! Our thanks go to those of you who donated tools.
The workshop is already in operation, with courses running to train the seniors in basic woodworking skills, with an emphasis on safety. So far each student has made a very sturdy and practical stool, which they have proudly taken home already.
The seniors also assisted Pete with the construction of a picnic table now in place near the kitchen to allow the Breakfast Club kids to eat their meals properly, and this is the first of 4 planned tables.
Of course the workshop will also be very useful for general maintenance work around the school grounds,
