Whale bones make dra­matic en­try point

North Coast Times - - NEWS -

WHALE bone arches fea­ture in an ar­bour re­cently in­stalled as an en­try state­ment for a Two Rocks school.

Land­scap­ing and de­sign com­pany LD To­tal cre­ated the struc­ture for At­lantis Beach Bap­tist Col­lege as part of At­lantis Beach es­tate devel­op­ers’ $3.3 mil­lion in­vest­ment in land­scap­ing on Break­wa­ter Drive.

“The land­scap­ing around At­lantis Beach Bap­tist Col­lege has now just been com­pleted, with the whale bone de­signed ar­bour be­ing a cen­tral fea­ture of this land­scap­ing,” es­tate project man­ager Jar­rod Ren­dell said

Mr Ren­dell said LD To­tal’s land­scap­ing mas­ter plan for the es­tate would in­clude sim­i­lar ar­bours at the en­trance to ma­jor parks in the com­ing years.

School prin­ci­pal Gary Har­ris said ev­ery­one at the col­lege was de­lighted with the ar­bour and com­ple­tion of land­scap­ing works.

“The new ar­bour will form an im­por­tant, ed­u­ca­tional and at­trac­tive aes­thetic to the en­trance to our col­lege, which opened in Fe­bru­ary,” he said.

“When our col­lege starts pro­vid­ing Year 12 cour­ses to our pupils, the new ar­bour will form part of a grad­u­a­tion walk where the names of pupils in school grad­u­a­tion groups will be ac­knowl­edged on plaques on the ar­bour struc­ture.

“Our cur­rent stu­dents also as­sisted with land­scap­ing the area sur­round­ing the col­lege with do­nated plants from lo­cal busi­nesses.”
