On Thursday 5th August the school celebrated National Tree Day by sending twelve classes to Leeuwin Estate to plant native trees.  The school worked with the Cape to Cape Catchment Group to plant trees along a stream course that had been degraded over the years by grazing cattle.

Well over 1000 trees were planted throughout the day and the feedback received by the school was that the students’ assistance was invaluable.

The school would like to thank accompanying parents and siblings who helped with the planting.  Thank you also to Hayley Rolfe, Saul Cresswell and their Cape to Cape volunteer group who worked on the site all day.  We look forward to our next conservation challenge.
