THE colour and diversity of Challengers Beach in Naval Base was brought to Orelia Primary School as students created a striking mural and planted a garden in a nod to the area’s unique natural diversity.

During a four-week period between November and December, Orelia Primary School students were under the guidance of local artist Vanessa Liebenberg.

Together they developed the mural as a representation of the beauty and biodiversity of Challengers Beach.

It was also to strengthen links between the school and Challengers Beach.

Mayor Carol Adams said the mural contrasted perfectly with the coastal garden of native flora, which was planted by the students.

“The City has linked with Orelia Primary on this project that allows the students to participate in a range of activities, including dune planting, in-class sessions, beach clean-ups and lessons in coastal ecology,” she said.

The Alcoa Coastal Mural and Alcoa coastal garden were developed at the school to strengthen the links between the school and Challenger Beach.

The City of Kwinana support the Challengers Beach Coastal Rehabilitation Project in association with Perth NRM Coastal and Marine Program, Coastcare and Alcoa.
