During the recent holiday break we completed the first stage of our school landscaping with the construction of a second Ga-Ga pit, a shaded outdoor classroom area and, a bike track to support our Bike Ed Program. All this has been positioned amongst the trees at the rear of the oval on the Clifton Springs Road side of the school. Please take a moment to explore this area that will enhance the playtime options for the older students.
The School Council has been working on a landscaping master plan in partnership with the Parents Fundraising Group so that we can create an inter-connected outdoor environment that supports the children’s learning and creativity. This has been a huge undertaking. With the amazing support of the Parents Fundraising Group we are now beginning to see practical changes. Look out for more over the coming months. Stage 2 involves the remodelling of the area between the Year Prep Building and the Canteen.
I would like to thank the school councillors who have driven the creation of the master plan: Kate Lockhart, Renee Colley and Shane Kennedy together with our Environment and Community committees. I would also like to thank Anna Richardson, Kylie Atkinson and the Parents Fundraising Group for their fundraising efforts that have enabled the plan to become a reality. Finally I would like to acknowledge the quality of the construction and landscaping efforts of Lincoln Blair and his company Auscapes.
