Located where we are, we are lucky to have a large number of native birds and animals that live in and around our school and this morning staff, students, and parents arrived to find a family of Tawny Frogmouths sleeping in our nature playground. They blended in really well!
One of our parent vets helped to move them into a more suitable location deep in a bush in the playground. The whole school was happy to give up playing in that particular playground for the day to preserve their peaceful haven.
We also have a number of Quenda (Southern Brown Bandicoot) living in the school grounds, many many Magpies, Bronzewing Pigeons, Wattle Birds of various types, Willy Wagtails, Magpie Larks (or Pewees if you prefer) and of course plenty of “28s”.
We are justifiably proud of our school and its environment and having many of our beautiful native wildlife choosing to make their homes here is an added bonus. The students and staff love seeing and learning about them.
