Freezer helping keep the students fed

The canteen at Western College has taken off thanks to a donation from The Good Guys.

The donation to Western College Alesco Learning Centre was part of The Good Guys Doing Good program, which gives around $1 million back to the community across the organisation.

Teacher Fiona Gough said the freezer, which they had been using for the past week, was a big hit.

Ms Gough said the small amount of money made from the canteen went back into the college, such as purchasing an oven to cook pies and pizzas.

“The kids get their say, they tell us what they want,” she said.

The $1 drinks had been incredibly popular, Ms Gough said, as had the iceblocks.

“The toasties have gone off. They really can be fore breakfast or lunch and a lot of the kids don’t have breakfast,” she said.

The Good Guys Dubbo store manager Kim Macdonald said the company was passionate about helping the community, and after hearing about the canteen they were happy to help out.
