In 2021 Wheelers Hill Primary School received a $5000 grant from Landcare Australia. With this grant, we decided to design and create a bird sanctuary. As a part of their Science Inquiry unit in Term 1, students in years 3 and 4 investigated animal features and habitats, and environmental factors that affect habitats. To conclude the unit, students designed an ‘ultimate bird sanctuary’ for a native bird. Students then, this week were able to take part in the creation the bird sanctuary at the front of our school. Students planted native, bird friendly plants, filled up bird baths and hung bird and insect nests and a bird feeder.
