This Term the Kolbe Bushrangers have been able to contribute to many school and community initiatives. Each week on a Thursday our Bushrangers meet after school and work on school projects or head out into the Rockingham community to work with organisations.
The Bushrangers have volunteered at Point Peron where students planted over 170 native seedlings in the bushland area. They have volunteered at HorsePower where students removed hundreds of cotton bush weeds from the paddocks and helped groom the horses, and visited Baldivis Children’s Forest to learn about the conservation initiatives currently in place there.
They have also planned recycling initiatives to work towards becoming a waste-wise school, counted the cans for containers for change, and cleaned up and replanted the Year 7 garden area. Kolbe’s Bushies also had an incursion from Critters Up Close where students were able to view and handle a number of different rescued native animals.
We have many excursions and activities planned for Semester 2 and are looking forward to continuing working with our partners in the Rockingham community. Bushrangers is always welcoming new members so please contact Mrs Lea, Ms Henderson, Mrs Williams, or Mrs Stynes if you’re interested in joining.
