Ardrossan Area School nature garden opened

ARDROSSAN Area School opened its new nature garden on Friday, December 8.

Teacher and Narungga woman Kay Lawrence has headed the project, which focused on building the native garden, and highlighting the diverse backgrounds of Ardrossan’s indigenous students.

“None of our indigenous students are actually Narungga, so Kay has been working with them on finding out more about their language, culture and background, to choose their totem animal (within the garden),” principal Karen Bond said.
