    Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School is situated amongst 14 acres of bushland in the Kelmscott hills south of Perth. The area, which includes a wetland reserve, is heavily infested with watsonia, tambookie, African lovegrass and other weeds that pose an environmental and fire risk.

    This project will eradicate these weeds and regenerate the natural bush with the aim of strengthening the buffer zone around the wetland.

    Revegetation activities will involve the community and students of the school.

    A traditional outdoor classroom will be created as part of the regeneration process. This classroom will be made available for other schools and community groups to use.

    Investment: $ 14 000
    Delivery organisation: Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School
    Project duration: August 2012 - December 2014
    Location: Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School, Kelmscott
