Pupils from Guyra Central School dove into some crafts and learning with the Guyra Country Women’s Association last week.

Guyra CWA’s Heather Starr and Leonie Hawkins visited school on July 28 to share with the students what it’s like being in the CWA.

And it wasn’t the first and only visit – the CWA ladies said they would now come for monthly meetings.

They hope to teach students the traditions and values of the organisation.

Of the 14 pupils involved, some indicated they would also like to learn some cooking craft and eventually one day become involved in helping the wider community.

Mrs Hawkins and Mrs Starr said they also wish to inform the participants about all the wonderful things CWA do throughout the community and the world.

The CWA has an ear in parliament both state and federal and have been able to make changes that have been beneficial for the community.

The next meeting will be held on Friday, August 25.

Students will engage in some knitting.
