WHALE bone arches feature in an arbour recently installed as an entry statement for a Two Rocks school.

Landscaping and design company LD Total created the structure for Atlantis Beach Baptist College as part of Atlantis Beach estate developers’ $3.3 million investment in landscaping on Breakwater Drive.

“The landscaping around Atlantis Beach Baptist College has now just been completed, with the whale bone designed arbour being a central feature of this landscaping,” estate project manager Jarrod Rendell said.

Mr Rendell said LD Total’s landscaping master plan for the estate would include similar arbours at the entrance to major parks in the coming years.

School principal Gary Harris said everyone at the college was delighted with the arbour and completion of landscaping works.

“The new arbour will form an important, educational and attractive aesthetic to the entrance to our college, which opened in February,” he said.

“When our college starts providing Year 12 courses to our pupils, the new arbour will form part of a graduation walk where the names of pupils in school graduation groups will be acknowledged on plaques on the arbour structure.

“This graduation walk will provide an inspiration to future students who will pass these plaques every time they enter and leave the college.

“Our current students also assisted with landscaping the area surrounding the college with donated plants from local businesses.”
