Our school bushland is enjoyed by our students and of great aesthetic value to our school environment. Mrs Cogger enjoys taking the students to the ‘bush classroom’ each term for various activities.
Unfortunately many years ago we found out that the trees had ‘dieback disease’. Since then we have embarked on an injection program every few years. In 2013 the Dieback Working Group came to the school and supervised the students with the injection program and provided all the materials and phosphate. Here is a photo of Alyssa and Bayley from Year 6 2013.
The next time the the trees were due to be treated was in 2016 and we had the help of Conservation Volunteers WA. Here is a photo of the team.
The trees in our bushland are due to be treated again. This is high priority if we have any chance of saving the most vulnerable species like the Banksias. As well as other species like Sheoak, Macrozamia, grass trees etc. Our bushland is also home to a family of Southern Boobook Owls, a Southern Brown Bandicoot, a Bobtail Goanna and other native species.
We have a BUSY BEE planned for Saturday 4th May commencing at 8am. Mrs Cogger would like to invite you to help ‘save our bushland’ by assisting with the injection program on Saturday morning. Chris (father of Kadyn Year 6 and Kiara Year 3) has kindly offered to hire the gear from Murdoch University and instruct us on how to inject the trees with phosphate. All we need now is a team of committed parents to assist us on the day. BYO drill, rubber gloves and goggles if you have any.
If you have would like to volunteer your time please register via this link
If yo ave any questions about the dieback injector program please contact Mrs Cogger or Mr Munro.
Once our trees have been treated we will be able to commence our replanting program with the grant funds recently received from Woolworths Junior Landcare.
In anticipation of a productive BUSY BEE…
