Visitors, students and parents alike now have no excuse for getting lost on their way to Mundijong Primary’s school office. 

The school’s new handcrafted signs were installed last week with compliments flooding in about their overall design and execution.

Acting principal Luke Bradley said the school’s signage was in need of an update and the members at Serpentine Jarrahdale Men’s Shed seemed the perfect fit for the task. 

“The new signs are easily visible from both of our main entries and really tie in well with our country setting,” he said. 

“We’ve had lots of people comment on how amazing they look.” 

Men’s Shed president Peter Cuttriss said the group was asked to make them in the middle of last year but they had to wait on the arrival of new equipment to complete the job. 

“The laser cutter and engraving machine arrived and we started on the raised letters, which were all cut, sanded and fixed to recycled timber before being sanded and lacquered,” he said. 

Mr Cuttriss said it was a pleasure to complete the job with members enjoying seeing the smiles on the children’s faces when they were installed.
