Students will continue their surfboard-making adventures in the coming term.

The event was organised through the efforts of Senior Techies’ founder Merv Stewart, who is passionate about increasing intergenerational connections on the Mornington Peninsula.

Incidentally, the event has received over 1600 likes to date on the BeyondBlue Facebook page.
