A naturalised area is being developed at the college as part of the $9 million Bells Creek flood protection project. A dual-use stormwater basin and sports field is being built on the northern half of Edmonds Park. As a result, Bells Creek has been realigned through the college. More than 2000 plants will be introduced as part of the overall development. The college’s environmental group is working with students, a contractor and city council staff to plant up to 300 plants on the school grounds. “By involving students in the project, we aim to nurture their interest in the natural environment,” acting city council land drainage manager Tim Joyce said. “We hope that they can embrace the value of a flourishing environment that benefits the greater community,” he said. Said Helen Mora, Linwood College head of learning area, science: “This planting gives the group members their first hands-on opportunity to action one of their goals – to improve the plantings already on Bells Creek ready for when we come back on-site after the rebuild.” PLANTING: Linwood College year 11 student David Elia is helping to develop a natural environment on the school grounds as part of the Bells Creek flood protection project.
