HOLY Family Catholic Primary School has started the year in the best possible way: as the recipient of a generous donation.
Through the latter months of 2017 and into the start of 2018, IGA Trinity Heights supermarket nominated the Kelso school as the recipient of the proceeds of the Community Chest program.
After weekly IGA contributions to the program, a donation of $1722.88 was able to be made to the school recently.
“We thank IGA Trinity Heights for supporting our school and assisting us as our new school year commences,” Holy Family principal Kevin Arrow said.
“The funds will assist the students with the purchase of new education resources to be used in the classrooms.”
Mr Arrow said the IGA Trinity Heights supermarket assists numerous Kelso organisations, including pre-schools, schools and clubs, and its manager Kevin Allen is very community-minded.
He said it was good to see a Kelso store helping the Kelso community.
