Beautiful weather and a group of very eager and excited students was a great start to our annual Quairading tree planting camp held on 26th and 27th July. When we arrived in town, we toured the local school and then headed off to see the Rabbit Proof Fence, the Quairading Nature Reserve and returned to the school to set up for the night. After a bbq and talent show we headed to our beds and tried to get some rest in anticipation for tree planting the next day.
The students worked hard on the farm and contributed to the planting of 8000 trees on salt affected farmland. It was a tremendous effort and students certainly did our school proud with their excellent behaviour and great manners. Special thanks must go out to Lauren Shepherd, Benita Di Giovanni, Hamish Buddle and Emma Jenkin who gave up their time and were a great help in ensuring the weekend was a success. Thank you also to the Rotary Club of Quairading and the Rotary Club of Subiaco for their financial contribution and assistance towards the weekend. These types of community partnerships demonstrate what can be achieved when we all work together. Well done everyone!
