Somerly Primary School was one of 15 schools and community groups around Australia, and two in WA, to receive a grant for new turf under the Turf Australia and Junior Landcare perfect patch of green initiative.

Deputy principal Pamela Cassidy said the 600sqm area ” previously covered in woodchips ” would create a play area for the junior students.

‘We are planning to grass part of this area for soccer and football and place some fixed goals,’ she said.

‘It will then be a space for our junior students to play soccer, football and other games safely without having to share the space with older students.’

The Lawn Doctor and West Coast Turf donated and laid the turf.
