Pre-school extension approval

LOWER Bucca Community Pre-school is anxiously awaiting Coffs City Council approval of its development application for extensions.

Parents and friends have removed the old tank and done preliminary clearing work and the committee is now looking for local builders to come forward and give a quote to build the new children’s disabled toilets and locker room.

“The local community has been so generous to Lower Bucca Preschool raising more than $19,000 at last year’s auction towards a new disabled children’s toilet,” said director Sam Birch.

Meanwhile, children have been putting together the new bikes donated to them by the Woolgoolga Triathlon Club and Sam said they were very grateful to Leeann Lloyd and Craig Bulloch at Woolgoolga Community Fun Runs for the $800 donation.

Preschool assistant Ken McGregor said: “We like to encourage the girls to take on meaningful construction tasks just as much as the boys and I only had to show them once how to turn the screwdriver.”
