MGC Volunteers Teach Elementary Students to Build Planter Boxes
Throughout April and May, MGC Construction employees volunteered at South Rutland Elementary School in Kelowna to lead and participate in activities with the students during recess in conjunction with the school’s Play Pal leadership program.
On May 24, 2013, during the school’s Play Day, MGC hosted an activity station called “Let’s Build Something Great”. MGC staff helped more than 120 primary students build and paint planter boxes, tool boxes, and jewelry boxes. Nearly every student in the school had the opportunity to build something. It was a great afternoon!
“Our partnership with MCG Construction has been a wonderful experience! Our students have benefitted from the involvement of this group of dedicated volunteers and they’ve had a lot of fun in the process! Our students’ “Got Health” project (with the Central Okanagan School District, Health-Promoting Schools Staff and Ministry of Health) was even more of a successful because of the support of MGC Construction!” says Cathie Mutter, Principal of South Rutland Elementary.
We were also happy to donate an iPad to the support services department of the school, and hope it will be a useful tool for years to come.
