Merri River Frontage

One of the best features of our school is the river frontage that we have access to.The Duke Of Ed class has been busy clearing the long grass, weeds and wild fennel that has been growing along the bank.
We have met with the Catchment Management Authority and they have advised us which plants are native and should remain, and which are non-native and should be removed.The goal is to have students using the river for fishing, canoeing and river studies by the end of the year. The next step is to mulch the area and begin planting native grasses and trees.
