THE hard work of Medowie Public School P&C has paid off, with the installation of their brand new fence last weekend.

For months, the school has been fundraising to replace their dated school fence, selling individual pickets to families, and package deals to businesses.

Purchasers of these pickets were given small plaques on ‘their’ picket, to commemorate their donation to the school.

The brand new picket fence was supplied and installed by Matt Gannon of MG Fencing Solutions – a fencing business located in Medowie.

It spans an impressive ninety metres, and is made of aluminium colourbond pickets.

The classic picket fence look will help to keep the ‘country feel’ intact for this wonderful little school.

The volunteers worked all long weekend alongside MG Fencing staff, to complete the job before school returns.

Special thanks to Pete Conlon, Eric Dorn, William Boswell and Heath Boswell for all of their help with install.

Rhianna, from MG Fencing, told News Of The Area, “It is wonderful to see yet another example of people like this in our little community, giving their time to help others.”

Well done Medowie Public School for raising the needed funds to carry out such a special project, and involving the community in your efforts.
