Since 2008 when $50,000 worth of grants were obtained to create a wetlands on our Dalton Road Campus, the wetlands has really developed over the last 6 years. Each years students from our school and from St. Peters Primary School, plant at least 200 indigenous plants around the wetlands and surrounding areas. Each year the aim is to increase the biodiversity of plants and to create a habitat that will attract and support local wildlife. Monthly water tests and regular incursions from Darebin Creek Management Committee as well as regular planting, weeding and biodiversity surveys ensure the wetlands is well maintained.
