Pinevale 'adopts' Kadina High
PINEVALE VILLAS, Goonellabah, has welcomed Years 7 and 8 students from Kadina High School through the Adopt-a-School Project.
The project is connecting Pinevale with Kadina and the wider community, while connecting the generations.
Pinevale activity officer Ruth Harrison said there was some apprehension at first, but that the generations, which includes 10 residents and 20 students, had now bonded.
The residents said the 20 students were an absolute credit to their school.
The residents' lives were told through Power Point presentations; a book for each was also presented to them afterwards made by the students. Adopt-a-School is a Federal Government initiative, through Connect, and links local school students with local organisations.
