KINROSS Wolaroi School principal Brian Kennelly is so proud of how beautiful the school’s gardens look throughout the year, he claims they’re one of Orange’s greatest and most colourful attractions.
It seems he’s not alone, with the school receiving a certificate of appreciation for outstanding garden displays by Orange City Council yesterday.
Mayor John Davis and deputy mayor Chris Gryllis were on hand to make the presentation and marvelled at how great the school looked.
“Over the years we’ve become extremely proud of our city’s parks and gardens and the ones here (at Kinross) are extraordinary,” Cr Davis said.
“The colour, design and how well they’re maintained is absolutely fantastic.”
Cr Gryllis paid special mention to the school’s parks and gardens team, who work hard to keep the grounds in tip-top shape all year round.
“I love Orange. It’s a beautiful city and it’s because of individuals like you,” he told the gardeners.
“It would be silly of us not to acknowledge the work that you do.”
It was a sentiment shared by principal Brian Kennelly, who gratefully accepted the certificate of appreciation from Crs Gryllis and Davis.
“I’m extremely proud of how the school looks and often receive praise about great the grounds look and how well they’re looked after,” he said.
“We continue to be impressed by the skills shown by our grounds team.”
