Hollywood Primary School students go on planting spree at local park

STUDENTS from Hollywood Primary School have planted seedlings at Hollywood Reserve to help encourage them to become more green-thumbed.

Last Thursday more than 200 students from pre-primary to Year 6 helped the Friends of Hollywood Reserve plant the seedlings.

City of Nedlands staff and councillor John Wetherall also helped plant seedlings, which will help protect and conserve the reserve and to provide habitat for native fauna.

City of Nedlands Mayor Max Hipkins said the school had helped plant seedlings every year for the past eight years.

“The annual event helps the students engage with nature and learn about the need to protect urban bushland areas,” he said.

“They have become very skilled at planting by attending the event each year.”
