Helping hand for Drummoyne
Drummoyne Public School is facing the possibility of partial closure of their school canteen due to dwindling parental volunteers and are calling for help from outside the school community. The canteen currently opens five days a week for 200 days a year so there is a constant need for additional volunteers. Local residents who can spare an hour or two a week are being asked to donate their time, with the P&C’s Head of Canteen Committee, Louise McGuigan, saying “It’s not difficult and many hands make light work. If you can make a sandwich and have some spare time, we’d love to hear from you.” Without more volunteers, the school will be forced to close the canteen a couple days a week or offer a more basic menu.
• If you can help, call Louise on 0409 909 398.
