West Melton Playcentre spans boundaries

15 senior students from West Melton School visited the Playcentre as part of the William Pike Challenge. After playing with the Playcentre tamariki, they picked up the vacuum and mop and gave the place a thorough clean. Many had attended Playcentre when they were little, and it was a chance for them to give back. Read the #coolstory here.
