School kitchen receives some love

Updated – 21/12/16

This year the Parent Club at Yallourn North Primary School set a goal with their fundraising activities, to update the canteen/cooking room. It needed to be reconfigured in such a way that it would be safer for children to move around in, especially when they were using things like knives, or when ovens are on.

This would mean the removal of the old long kitchen bench and replacing it with two smaller benches, which would create a clear and safe walkway through the middle.

The school rang local cabinet maker Phil Havas from Latrobe Valley Joinery to come and provide a quote. And he happily obliged.

Phil did his thing and measured up, and two days later rang with some great news – offering to do the job FREE OF CHARGE! The school was obviously overjoyed with this show of generosity.

Phil’s generosity didn’t stop there however; he also rang Bella Marble and got stone benchtops donated for the new areas FREE OF CHARGE as well! Still not satisfied, he has arranged for new lino for the floors too.

Update: The floors have now been laid, with a big thanks to JML Flooring & Home Solutions. The area is all safe for the kids to use come 2017.



Evidently Phil has done an amazing job. He has created a safe and amazing cooking area. And the kids love it. But more than that it’s clear he is a sincere and genuine community member,  who was prompt, efficient and extremely generous with his time and kindness.

Yallourn North Primary School cannot thank Phil from LVJ and Bella Marble enough!
