Hours of hard work was made all the more worthwhile last week for a group of pupils from Ardeer Primary School.

The pupils visited Estia Health Aged Care where they gave residents handmade wooden games.

Ardeer Primary School chaplain Rob Nansen co-ordinated the initiative and said the response exceeded expectations.

“We did this last year for the first time and everyone loved it, so we decided to do it again this year,” he said.

This year pupils created a tangram puzzle and a quoits set. Bunnings Warehouse donated some equipment to get the program started.

“It was really good to see the students go from zero experience to having real skill and firing along really confidently,” Mr Nansen said.
