Alterno recently provided a grant to Waihi Beach School to purchase a garden shed and gardening equipment needed by the school to get their garden project up and running.

During a recent visit to the school we were heartened to see the level of community engagement.

Thanks to the passion and energy of the staff, parents, friends of the school and all of the pupils, Waihi Beach School now has many fruit trees planted, the strawberry gardens are in flower, plus many more projects under way.

We were told that the support from the community has been outstanding.
