The Peace Garden is a 3M x 5M decked area intended to provide students with a creative and unique sensory setting. It will be used for academic work and performances to assist students develop their oral language.
The project was part of the new WesCEF Community Grants Program, where we provide $2000 towards various not-for-profit organisations to help the local communities in which we operate.
Noella Bloomfield from the school’s P&C fundraising committee said the function of the decking is to provide students with different learning opportunities.
“Thanks to your community grants program, we have been able to have decking fully installed in our Peace Garden that the students are using every day for academic and creative endeavours. Thank you so much for your support,” she said.

The school is part of the “Act, Belong, Commit” initiative which is a program providing young people with simple guidelines they can adopt to look after their mental health and increase their self-esteem, confidence and resilience.
