Bush Tucker-Indigenous Education Reserve – Busy Bee Friday 8th November 3:00-5:30pm!

We are looking to kick off our transformation of the school nature reserve into our amazing Bush Tucker-Indigenous Education Reserve with a Busy Bee on Friday 8th November straight after school (Busy Bee 3:00-5:30pm & BBQ/Aboriginal Educational Presentation 5:30-6pm).

We will focus on mulching the bush tucker path, cementing in the beautiful laser cut metal sculptures with the Aboriginal seasons on them (picture below) & artworks donated by the City of Melville (pictures below), and have the students and school community plant bush tucker plants.  This will be an amazing resource for the school and community so if you can keep the date free it would be fantastic.

Following the Busy Bee and to thank everyone there will be a free BBQ and a presentation while you eat from an Indigenous presenter on a theme to be confirmed (we are endeavouring to either have a presentation on bush tracking, bush tucker, dreamtime stories or aboriginal astronomy).

If you and your family would like to be involved please keep the date free or contact our friendly Grounds & Facilities team of Ali, Brian, Bruce, Casey, Stephanie, Tania or Mike for more details at or 040 6666 567.
