Tree change for re­serve

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

NORTH Cottes­loe Pri­mary School stu­dents lent a hand when 60 trees were planted on the rail­way re­serve next to the school by Cottes­loe Coun­cil this month.

“It’s part of a pro­gram of re­ju­ve­na­tion and reveg­e­ta­tion of Cottes­loe, and we wanted to in­clude the pri­mary school’s stu­dents,” Mayor Jo Dawkins said.

The trees do­nated to the school from the coun­cil in­cluded banksias, gre­vil­leas, eu­ca­lypts and hakeas.

Mrs Dawkins said the next re­ju­ve­na­tion pro­ject to be done by the coun­cil was likely to be work with Cottes­loe Coast­care to re­store sand dunes at the end of Napier Street on Septem­ber 4.

At Cottes­loe Pri­mary School, a new $1.1 mil­lion ad­min­is­tra­tion block was an­nounced by the State Gov­ern­ment.

“The new build­ing will pro­vide staff with a bet­ter area to carry out their im­por­tant work, and it will also re­sult in pleas­ant ar­eas for staff to meet with par­ents and stu­dents,” Cottes­loe MLA Colin Bar­nett said.
