This was evident when the Altona Refinery received a call from a teacher at One Tree Kinder, who was eager to organise a visit from a refinery team member to answer a question many of the kids had been asking: “What are those giant candles in the distance?”
To answer this question, Safety Adviser Mark Robertson visited the kindergarten to talk about what happens at the refinery.
Armed with a bucket full of protective equipment, Mark ran two science focused sessions for the kinder kids including a presentation on how to make jet fuel and what it is that people do at the refinery. Mark also answered a wide range of questions from the kinder kids along with their grade 5 buddies who joined the second session.
Mark looks forward to visiting One Tree Kinder again in the near future.
