Year 9 students from our Berwick Campus have been busy building an Indigenous Garden, as part of an experiential program run with Beacon Explorers.

Last week, the students extended the Tan Track leading up to the Year 9 building and added a garden bed with a snake-inspired pathway to separate the specimen and food species of plants. Consultation on plant selection is underway with the College’s Head of Indigenous Initiatives, Lynette George.

Head of Year 9 at Berwick, Marcus Roberts, said the project was one of the return-to-school initiatives aimed at building a sense of community. Other activities planned for coming weeks are student-led discussions of a firepit learning space concept, along with wellbeing and other activities for younger students run by Year 9 students and the Beacon Explorers team.
