Alma Public School received a special delivery from Woolworths last week after outstanding participation in the supermarket’s Earn and Learn promotion last year.
It was one of just 40 schools across the country chosen for a visit which included the presentation of a range of educational tools earned through the program.
Among the package were 12 sets of Australian Geographic books, including one based on Broken Hill which delighted Alma students.
BH Store Manager Jason Hamblem explained that community engagement was an important part of the business.
“It’s important for us to support the next generation, especially in a regional city like Broken Hill,” he said.
Assistant Principal Sharon DeGoumois said it was a lovely initiative and when she questioned who would be participating in the Earn and Learn program this year, every hand in the hall shot up.
As well as educational equipment, the Woolworths team brought a selection of fresh fruit for students which proved extremely popular.
