IT was all hands on deck today for Mount Morgan State High School’s Certificate II and III in Rural Operations students.
The group stepped away from their usual coursework and donned their gloves to assist in the cleanup effort after the floods.
This morning the students were at the Crompton Park Pony Club, clearing debris and assessing fences.
Jacob Bunn (Year 12), Holli O’Sullivan (Year 10), and Emily Stein (Year 12), were among the ten students on the ground, and said the community work was rewarding.
“We are cleaning up the area, picking up any wooden debris, rubbish, getting all the plastic bags and trash from the fences and then we will burn it off,” Mr Bunn said.
The students are able to complete the certificates through the new Vocational Education program at the high school, which has teamed up with the Emerald Agricultural College.
The group are now at Paradise Lagoons to assist with the cleanup there.
