THE Pyalong Primary School playgroup now has a new facility thanks to a generous donation by the Kilmore and District Community Bank.

The bank’s representatives, Customer Relations Officer and Kate Boulton, Community Engagement and Marketing Officer visited the school last week to present a cheque for $3,400 to fund a storage unit to house the playgroup’s equipment.

Students, mums and school staff welcomed the visitors to celebrate the bank’s sponsorship that will ease the crowded conditions in the old school building that have been experienced since the Department of Education ‘repossessed’ a portable classroom that housed the playgroup and other school activities back in 2016.

“We are pleased to sponsor this important project for the school and to support the school community in its valuable work within Pyalong,” Ms Boulton said.
