Euroa Men’s Shed members make seats to promote a friendly culture
FRIENDSHIP seats were unveiled in both Euroa primary schools last week in a move to stamp out bullying and promote unison.
The project was initiated by local policeman Leading Senior Constable Lucas Paul who was inspired to act following the story of a young child who had taken his own life.
“He was only nine or 10 and he had been bullied,” LSC Paul said.
“I was very sad about the whole circumstance.
“I wondered what we could do.”
LSC Paul said he heard about the Alannah and Madeline friendship seats that were part of a metropolitan Melbourne project and wondered if the same could be done in Euroa.
