Perthville Public School may have as its motto "Small school big future" but during Education Week the children went all out to make a huge difference to those in their community.
This year there was a specific focus on the work of Bathurst Men's Shed.
On more than one occasion, the Bathurst Men's Shed have given their time and effot to build specialised furniture for the students at Perthville Public.
So to give back some of this goodwill students from Years 5 and 7 visited the Bathurst Men's Shed on August 7 during Education Week.
Their aim was to share morning tea and see what the organisation is offering to the men of Bathurst. Perthville students were very keen to find out what is happening at the Bathurst Men's Shed.
Not all Men's Sheds are the same but they all have the same premise behind their creation. A quick look inside your own Men's Shed and you may see a number of men making furniture, restoring bicycles, or fixing lawn mowers.
They are accessible to all men and the primary activity is to promote a safe, friendly and healing environment where men are able to work on meaningful projects, at their own pace, in their own time in the company of other men.
The organisation now has more than 985 Men's Sheds representing an estimated 150,000 individuals and employs five full-time employees
