As part of the Collingwood College faithful, Paul has been involved with the school community on various projects over the years. Most recently, this has involved the creation of a new Junior play facility at the north of the school grounds.

Showing her versatility, Mel donned the gumboots and got her hands dirty on site. Check out that craftsmanship!

Looked like a great day out in the sun for Mel and our builder Pete.
