Staff and students from Albion Park High School joined members from local churches, businesses and community of Albion Park to do much needed work in and around the Car Park and Skate Park between the Library, Museum and Swimming Pool in central Albion Park on Saturday the 20th June.
 
City Serve is a project based setup in conjunction with Shellharbour Council where local community members can join together and give much needed facelifts to beautify areas within our communities that our local council is struggling to finance and complete.
 
The work done included: landscaping, painting, trimming of bushes, rebuilding retaining walls, concreting, weeding, filling garden beds with mulch, and planting various native plants and shrubs.
The weather was beautiful – not too hot and not too cold for well over a 100 people who volunteered their services and worked with local Shellharbour Council staff. Shellharbour Council provided the mulch, plants, concrete, paint, tools and equipment.
 
Local small businesses provided food for a barbeque to feed the hungry workers and keep up their energy levels. I must say that as I now walk through this area on the way to sport each week the surroundings are absolutely beautiful.
 
Four of our Year 9 students and one of our Year 7 students were involved and they were: Jackson Stolk, Anthony Peitrobelli, Corey Debnam, Amaru Ross-Kelloway and Dylan Debnam. Thanks boys for a great effort and volunteering your time. You can certainly be very proud of your efforts.
