Griffith Work for the Dole participants have transformed a rundown former day care centre into a bright new space for general use at the Griffith Community Centre.
Working with the assistance of their Supervisor from GetSet Training Services, participants undertook a range of tasks to rejuvenate the outdated space. They installed new carpet, sanded and painted walls, refurbished the children’s cubby house and repaired the entire patio.
The participants gained excellent work life skills and were supported by a fantastic host to achieve the set goals. The engagement level on this activity was quite high and two clients stood out for their excellent attendance record and effort.
The upgrade even caught the attention of the Area News.
The refurbished room can now be hired by the community.
Congratulations to all involved in this project.
