Kingston Primary School is involved with the Kingston Men’s Shed through the Primary School Mentoring Program. The Kingston Men’s Shed is a partner with the Kingston Community Garden, located in Gormerly Drive, Kingston.
Around the country, Men’s Sheds provide an opportunity for men to get together within their local community, promoting productivity, communication, self-esteem, health and well-being. Members come from all walks of life, getting together to do something meaningful. Groups may undertake community projects, specific Men’s Shed projects or projects of member’s choice which are undertaken within a safe environment with a spirit of mateship.
Local ‘Shedders’ have introduced some of our students to such worthwhile activities as bicycle maintenance, basic electronics and wooden toy making.
