Across the road from Covenant Christian School's new Infants Building is an amazing piece of bushland. Most members of our school community are unaware of it. The pine forest as well as the native bushland around it provide our school with a unique learning opportunity.
The area has its own unique micro habitat. It is closely related to the Duffy Forest with some quite rare species including the miniature flannel flower. There are some who would like to see passive education take place on the site, others who wish to preserve it in its current state including documenting the plant life. Some teachers are already discussing how to incorporate it in their lessons. Whatever decisions are made we should be grateful as a school to have such a wonderful opportunity. We are once again thankful for the foresight shown by the school's early leaders in applying for permission to use the land.
In the middle of the bushland is an occupied home and yard which is private property. We ask that their privacy be respected so students are only to be on the site under supervision of a staff member. The entire property adjoins 10 hectares of preserved bushland. This acts as a permanent buffer to the local Belrose Waste and Transfer Centre which is closing in November 2014.
