Every day - CUT THE WRAP
Wednesday 22 June UK Artist Jane Perkins visiting Westcourt Campus
On Tuesday 31 May, several Year 10 students braved the bitterly cold and wet conditions to commence the next phase of our Otways inspired garden in the Edmund Rice Campus quadrangle, as part of our Enviroservice (Service Learning) activities. In 2019, Year 10 Environmental Science students commenced the upgrade, planting several Soft Tree ferns (Dicksonia Antartica) and Bird’s Nest Ferns (Asplenium nidus). With the introduction of a spray mist watering system under the ramps, it has become an idyllic environment for these species to thrive. Over the past fortnight, Sustainability leaders have continued the upgrade, by planting various species including; Soft Tree ferns (Dicksonia Antartica), Bird’s Nest Ferns (Asplenium nidus), Mother Shield Fern (Polystichum proliferum), Native violet (Viola Heteracea) and Mountain Correa (Correa Lawrenceana).
As the Year 11 VCAL students gear up for new recycling and reforming polymer projects next semester, we need the support of our community for recycled plastic resources. We are encouraging all families to keep plastic bottle tops (numbers 2 & 4). In addition, other items that may be recycled at the College include; corks, stamps and plastic bread tags (in support of the Bread Tags for Wheelchairs project).
All bottle tops (washed only) and other items may be delivered to the Reception of either campus.
