Academy staff and volunteers from integrated infrastructure services firm AECOM recently spent two days painting and decorating rooms around the Academy, including the large school dining hall, in order to keep them a welcoming, comfortable and vibrant place for students.
AECOM are working with us on our New Build project in Exmouth – a world-class facility for Deaf education, due for completion in 2019. AECOM’S Corporate Responsibility program enables employees to take two-days paid working days per year for volunteering for charitable and not-for-profit organisations within the communities in which they work.
Until we relocate, the old buildings on the current site require a great deal of maintenance and upkeep. We are a charity so AECOM’s generous volunteer support meant that the much-needed painting and decorating could be carried out within a tight budget.
