A common theme we hear from Principals is that they are looking for a well presented school to reflect a culture of pride for their students, staff and community.
Programmed has partnered with many schools over the past 30 years to help achieve excellence in school presentation.
As a proud long-term supporter of the CPPA we would appreciate the opportunity to participate in caring for your schools assets. If your school has new buildings which require annual washing for warranty purposes, if your gutters require cleaning to avoid overflows or if your buildings just need a little bit of paint maintenance or a full repaint, Programmed is well situated to assist. We specialise in options to assist with one-off projects or options that include ongoing peace of mind.
While Programmed is well known to schools, especially to those that utilise our preventative maintenance plans, many don’t realise we also complete small one-off projects every day for customers across theCanterbury region.
If you are considering a project of any size to care for your buildings this year, please contact Programmed as we would be very keen to be involved with any work you are considering. Wilson and I are looking forward to seeing the development at your school and to continuing our relationship with the CPPA.
